Something Odd In Firefox

February 11th, 2005 Leave a comment Go to comments

I discovered something on in Firefox the other day at work.

Firstly, I have to say that I have the “Tabbed Browsing” configuration options plugin installed – this gives you greater options of control as to how the tabbed browsing works. I must say that it is just perfect, and I would recommend anyone who has Firefox installed to use it.

Anyway, I have the option “Load URLs from the clipboard on middle click” activated. I discovered if I have the text “(OUTPUT vContinue)” in the clipboard (with the brackets, but without the quotes), the tab will be directed to this page: http://www.itl.de/html/deutsch/downloads/fs/PrettyPrintFsl.fsl

Can anyone explain this? Have I discovered some bizarre hidden feature, or something else? Does it have to be exactly this text, or is it some property of the text that sets it off (such as starting and ending with a bracket?). I’m not sure. If you know anything then please get in contact!
