Description Marijn Schouten 2006-04-14 12:10:38 UTC
When you edit a page in firefox a whole list of buttons for easy and quick insertion of tags is available. Apparently 
these buttons didn't work on konqueror and so they were made to not show in that browser. At the moment the redirect 
button is showing though and is working. I couldn't find any bug on this so I don't know whether the other buttons 
work, but they probably do so they should be enabled. If not I want to know about it so I can complain to konqueror 
devs on

That button doesn't appear on a vanilla install of SVN trunk, so I'm assuming it
was added to the sitewide JavaScript and skips the browser checks the built-in
toolbar does.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2006-04-17 04:18:16 UTC
Possibly same as bug 4663 (Safari is KHTML based, like 
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2006-04-17 08:48:22 UTC
Manually enabling the button locally, I see that it doesn't 
work with Konqueror 3.4.3. Don't have any other versions to 

If it works in some future version, we'll need a reliable 
marker to test for -- enabling a button that's useless for 
many/most existing Konqueror users would not be a great idea. 

Preferably this should *NOT* be a user-agent string or such; 
we should be able to test the browser for the presence of 
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2006-04-17 08:54:34 UTC
Ok, assuming they work where implemented it should be possible 
to test for the selectionStart and selectionEnd properties on 
the textarea. (The properties are not present in 3.4.3.)
Comment 5 Marijn Schouten 2006-04-17 09:17:02 UTC
No not in 3.4.3 :) , I filed a bug about this (see first post) on version 3.5.1. Someone worked on it or was working on it already and on my 
current 3.5.2 the redirect insertion button works. Brion Vibber, perhaps you can discuss how to test for the necessary features with the konqueror 
devs at ? 
Comment 6 Marijn Schouten 2006-04-17 09:22:09 UTC
Actually if I spoof as firefox 1.0 with konqueror 3.5.2 all insertion buttons work.
Comment 7 Brion Vibber 2006-04-17 10:37:45 UTC
Fixed on trunk, r13689.
Comment 8 Marijn Schouten 2006-04-29 17:23:39 UTC
Someone has turned the redirect button off for Konqueror. Somewhere between half an hour ago and 4 hours ago.
