Description aziem 2003-11-03 22:46:32 UTC
OOo has some extension to view documents in Internet Explorer, but it isn't working for me. There are two cases. First there is one accessing SquirrelMail on the local network. I click on an OOo attachment, and the new window is SquirelMail reporting that I'm not logged in. I think this is because OOo should use IE's cookie to get the attachment URL. The second case is on an external web site (http://europa.eu.int/ISPO/ida/jsps/index.jsp? fuseAction=showDocument&parent=news&documentID=1647) I am trying to open the OOo document, but OOo says it can't contact the site. The situation is most likely that OOo isn't using IE's define proxy settings, and because port 80 is firewalled, the proxy is the only way out. Thanks.

Nevermind about the second case. The first time OOo reported that it could not contact the host. Now it loads the documents, though I didn't change anything.

You can associate which program is used to open each file type by right clicking on a file in the explorer, then select Open With, and then select the program you want to open that file. There should also be a box there that you can click to select whether you always want files of the same type to open with the same program. It sounds like some of there file associations are not set up on your machine. The OOo files should be associated to OOo. You can choose whether to associate your msoffice files (DOC, XLS, PPT) to msoffice or to OOo. Does this help?
Comment 3 aziem 2003-11-07 16:09:42 UTC
I believe OOo is correctly associated with files. * In the Windows Explorer, all XLS, DOC, SXW, SXC files show OOo icons, and clicking on any of them starts OOo. * In SquirrelMailin Internet Explorer, clicking on an OOo message attachment starts OOo. I can see the OOo window embedded in Internet Explorer. (There is the distinctive OOo menu bar.) Previously I had DOC, XLS associated with MS Office. When I clicked on these file types in SquirrelMail, they would also open embedded in Internet Explorer. I think the problem is OOo is not using IE's session cookie to fetch the attachment from SquirrelMail. OOo's windows shows SM complaining that I'm not logged in. I can e-mail you a screen shot or the HTTP log file, if you want.

A screen shot or log file may be helpful; although, step-by-step list of instructions to reproduce the error would be the most helpful information you could provide. Will you please add a list of steps here?

I ran OpenOffice repair on my PC, and am having a new but related problem. (So I can't get the original problem to recreate.) Now OO does not load. Instead I just get an icon where the OOO document should be. Attachment shows screenshots of problem. The second is what happens after I click on "Attachments: fundraising comparison.sxc." The first screenshot (problem.sxw) just shows SquirrelMail. Step-by-step: 1. Login to SquirrelMail 2. Open the message 3. Click "Attachments: fundraising comparison.sxc." 4. Get result in second screenshot (see problem.sxw). I repeated these steps on a second computer in our office with same results. The computer is also IE 6, OOO 1.1, and Win ME. Thanks.

Hi, Thank you for your time. I am not able to see the screenshots in the attached file. I see two places where images should be in the file, but there are no images, only tags. Perhaps on your system the file has the 'Linked' box is checked under Insert | Graphics? If this is checked, the graphics are only linked to the document, instead of part of it. This Linked feature should not be selected, unless you send the image files along with the document that links to them. Will you please try to send the screenshots again? They are a critical piece of your failure steps and without them the failure you are seeing is not clearly defined. Can the attachments that are sent in SquirrelMail be opened with OOo if they are first saved to the hard drive, then opened directly with OOo, outside of the SquirrelMail application? Changed summary field from "Internet Explorer extension" to "OOo attachments in SquirrelMail do not open properly". Does this better pinpoint the issue discussed in this report? Kind Regards, Diane

>Thank you for your time. I am not able to see the screenshots in the > attached file. I see two places where images should be in the file, Sorry. I even tested the sxw at home with an older version of OOO on a different OS--and was able to see it. I will try again. > Can the attachments that are sent in SquirrelMail be opened with OOo > if they are first saved to the hard drive, then opened directly with > OOo, outside of the SquirrelMail application? Yes. In fact, I can click SM's Download link and then choose Open. This also opens the document correctly. The difference b/w Download and clicking the file name link is that the latter is supposed to open the document inside the browser (IE6). > Changed summary field from "Internet Explorer extension" to "OOo > attachments in SquirrelMail do not open properly". Does this better > pinpoint the issue discussed in this report? Sounds good.

Issue 21365 may be similar? Changed component from support to framework.

Comment 15 thorsten.martens 2005-08-10 12:51:44 UTC
TM->ATR: Mail-problem or plugin-problem ? Please have a look, thanks !
Comment 16 atr 2005-08-10 13:14:39 UTC
ATR->TRA: Hi Tino, please have a look at this issue. I think this is a enhancement then a defect, because OOo doesn't support SquirelMail.
Comment 17 tino.rachui 2005-08-22 09:58:48 UTC
Is OOo the only application which doesn't work with SquirrelMail? What about Word, Wordpad, etc.? In order to isolate the problem I need more information about what exactly doesn't work. Please consider that I do not know SquirrelMail at all so please write detailed. Are you able to open OOo attachments using Mozilla or Thunderbird? SquirrelMail is not officially supported by OOo this issue seems to be rather an ehancement than a bug based on what I understood from the bug description and rather P4 than P3.
Comment 18 aziem 2005-08-22 14:07:33 UTC
The problem is specific to OOo and Internet Explorer. OOo can be embedded in MSIE. SquirrelMail is a web-based e-mail system. When opening an attachment from SquirrelMail, OOo tries to open inside MSIE and OOo tries to fetch the attachment via HTTP from SquirrelMail. SquirrelMail refuses because OOo does not present the session cookie. I suppose the specific issue is that OOo should present session cookies inherited from MSIE. You can see all this happening in the attachment <sm_oo_login.doc>. There are no problems with Firefox and Thunderbird because they download the attachment, store it locally, and then call OOo. Microsoft Word and Wordpad work OK with SquirrelMail.
Comment 19 tino.rachui 2005-08-23 08:13:38 UTC
TRA->MAV: Seems as it has to do with the IE plugin. Could you have a look on it maybe?
Comment 20 aziem 2005-10-24 19:04:06 UTC
Summary: "OOo attachments in SquirrelMail do not open properly" --> "Session cookies not sent when embedded in MSIE" BTW, I can confirm the problem exists in OOo 2.0.0 final with Windows 2000 and latest MSIE 6.
