If you open WebPositive and provide an FTP site:

The URL will be parsed into http://ftp//


If you click on an FTP link on a website, you get a file listing missing newlines (designed behavior)


The solution of this task is to create a patch to ensure WebPositive no longer mangles non-http url entries. (However, entering a word or phrase such as "cats", "lol cats", "lol cats on youtube" should still result in a Google search being performed for that phrase.
