Attempt to fix JS links, blocks Copying Link

Attempt to fix JavaScript links, blocks Copy Link Location


Don't know if this is a bug or just to be expected but ...

Having (Options | Advanced | Untrusted) Attempt to fix JavaScript links enabled can thwart the copying of a "link".

URL: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/ts ... view=docid

The two DOWNLOAD buttons (Step 4), right-click Copy Link Location does not work.

This happens when symantec.com is NOT Allowed.
If symantec.com is Allowed, then the right-click will work as expected (& a left-click will initiate a download).

Could this be happening because of the FTP: link?

This can (may) also happen with bookmarklets (on webpages) - perhaps?.

It does NOT happen here: https://www.squarefree.com/bookmarklets/zap.html

(If you toggle Attempt to fix JavaScript links, you'll need to refresh the page.)

Actually on the squarefree page (JavaScript not allowed), it requires two right-clicks on a (each) bookmarklet before the context menu will open.

Looks like I described the same/similar situation here, Attempt to fix JavaScript links - Oddity.
