#2045 new bug

NetPositive Bookmarks not consistent

Reported by: kvdman Owned by: stippi
Priority: normal Milestone: R1.1
Component: Applications/Tracker Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Cc:

Platform: All


I've moved over some Netpostive bookmarks from BeOS to Haiku. When you have the Tracker in 'list' mode the icon for the bookmark is the old BeOS format, when you're in 'icon' mode for Tracker it looks like a query icon. See screenshot.

Also, I tried changing the file type to open with Firefox, but couldn't. Would it make sense to change this to open these with Firefox since Haiku won't have Netpositive?

About having NetPositive's bookmarks open in FireFox, or some other application - unfortunately, bookmarks created from the menu option "Add to Bookmarks" (Alt-B) get (for reasons unknown) the BEOS:PREF_APP attribute. (But not when created using the drag&drop widget.) It doesn't matter which application is set as preferred for the filetype, as the individual file's setting trounces that of the filetype, AFAIK.

Solutions?: A) Delete all the BEOS:PREF_APP attributes on your bookmark files (regularly?) B) Delete NetPositive and make a launcher app using its application signature. C) Convert all bookmarks to something else (and back?) using e.g. Springboard? D) Hack Tracker - make it ignore the BEOS:PREF_APP attribute for Net+ Bookmarks.

I'm not sure if we should make this "Unscheduled" (R5 didn't have this) or "R1" (as we are trying to maintain compatibility with BeOS, and that might include adding some workaround for Net+'s bookmark format).

I don't think we need to add this feature. Anyone who is using 15+ year old bookmarks likely has to update them anyways.

We should fix at least the problem with bitmap icons not showing up.

Having a wrapper using Net+ application signature may make sense. Maybe urlwrapper could be used for this.
