ditto. It rarely works.
Zimbra: Please, please remove the stupid websnapr functionality from the core URL zimlet. Feel free to make a websnapr zimlet, just please release a URL zimlet that does what it's supposed to.
You should also vote on it. Your bug number in your post can be made into a link to the bug, easier for people to get to it and vote on it.;)
I tried a quick hack, and for me it works.
I hope it can be a quick workaround for others, so I uploaded it as an attachment to the bug.
(Tested with Zimbra OSS 4.5.4)
- Go to Zimbra Admin
- disable the zimbra_url URL Zimlet
- undeploy it
- click on #deploy new'
- upload the following .zip file
I removed the Thumbnails and just display the URL.
My point is security:
If you get a spam email and just move with the mouse over a link with your
unique spam-target id number in the URL, than Websnapr calls the URL, and the spammers start hitting you more,because they know that you are a real person reading the inbox and opening emails.
So for my user base I just have removed the thumbnail and display the URL which gives the user additional security info about a link before he clicks it (if a href and text is not the same).
P.S. In Firefox I had to clear the browser cache and re-logon to see the Zimlet update. (Through the admin 'View eMail' Link I got allways the most current version of the zimlet - while trying around)
P.P.S This version does not show URL parameters ?x=y in the Popup info.
Ifyou want them use the version below in the next post.
Tested in 4.5.3 Network edition on CentOS.
I've only found one problem:
Popup for a link having parameters does not show the parameters.
This is a security issue, though less of one than the websnapr functionality.
Otherwise, Thank you!
Find here a version where the url parameters are kept,
and display in the popup.
Works as advertised.
Thank you very much.
4.5.3 Network Edition on CentOS
As OP/Bug Reporter I'd like to add that this works perfectly, many thanks!
