My Netscape button targets wrong page.


(SeaMonkey :: General, defect, P2)

Windows 98

I looked a round a bit and couldn't find a dupe, though it seems to me that I've seen this before.

When you click on the My Netscape button on the toolbar, the page is loaded in the browser. Manually entering works fine, but the toolbar button does not.

If this -is- new, I can't see how it made it through the testing without one soul clicking on it.

Came across this using the m8 binary w/o Talkback on Win '98.
Hmm.... This is in the release notes... I knew it looked familiar.... =)

Radha, is this some kind of DocLoader issue?  For us?
navigator.xul loads for the My netscape button. Changing it to works right.  Don't know what the release notes says. Shall look
in to it and fix it.

I actually commited a checkin yesterday where  the my netscape button now goes
to But since seamonkey doesn't read the cookie in your machine
and actually go to *your* my netscape page and does not let you sign-in to
netcenter, there was a discussion on whether to call this fixed or make it do
the right thing. I let leger make the call on this. Are there bugs for

1) the *not reading the cookie* problem.
2) Not letting you sign-in problem?
A bug exists which says something to the effect of:

"Signing on to does not work when you do it, but if you go back
to the page again, you'll be logged on."

That's what happens for me. All subsequent loads of are normal.

If it's in the release notes there should be a bug somewhere. I remember discussing
this with radha. anyway, I just took a look and the my.netscape button does indeed

and login. If you quit and restart and follow the link again it will find your cookie and present you
with your personal page - now. A few bugs were brought up here but they all seem to be fixed,
especially the one bug this bug report is for. marking FIXED and VERIFIED.
