view-source: URLs can no longer be linked from Web pages

Published: | Categories: Privacy & Security

Description

For security reasons, Firefox now blocks links from Web pages to any view-source: URLs, that can be used to view the source of an HTML or XML document, like other privileged URLs. On Firefox 47 and later, clicking on a view-source: URL just logs a URI_DANGEROUS_TO_LOAD exception in the Web Console.
