From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.5) Gecko/20011011 BuildID: 20001101117 Browser is having problems using relative URLS when navigating between various sites, directing the user to the incorrect webpage. An intermittent problem. Example, going from site 1 to site 2, expecting to arrive at index page for site 2, receiving index page for site 1 instead. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1) create a simple html page to contain short cuts. 2) Place on this page links for: http://ptech.wsj.com/ptech.html and http://www.theregister.co.uk/ 3) Make this html doc the start up page for mozilla. 4) open the link for http://ptech.wsj.com/ptech.html 5) Click home 6) Open the link for http://www.theregister.co.uk/ 7) Observe that you arrive at http://ptech.wsj.com/ Bug is intermittent, but common on my machine, seen on various pages, where the url you are going to does not display properly, but seems to be processed as if it were located in the previous site. The browser should have gone to the index page for http://www.theregister.co.uk/ instead of the index page for http://ptech.wsj.com Actual Results: This happened when I opened Moz95 for the first time, and seems reproducible with the sites in question, although not consistantly. Expected Results: The browser should have gone to the index page for http://www.theregister.co.uk/ instead of the index page for http://ptech.wsj.com I use a startup.htm that contains links for common items as a start up page for all my browsers. This was seen on a fresh install of Moz95, talkback edition. Previously installed browsers on system include NS 4.78, NS 6.1, IE 5.5. All NS easch installed in separate folders. Moz 94 was installed previously, but was removed because of this issue. This bug also seen with other sites. Also seen to a lesser degree in NS 6.1 Where the string was truncated, missing the H in http, even though the link was verified as correct. Again, intermittent, and may be a site problem vs a browser issue.
Reporter: Are you using a proxy ? (like junkbuster)
Marking WFM 2001101909 on Win2k. Reporter: If you're not using Junk Buster, and this problem still occurs for you, please reopen this bug. You may also want to try a more recent build: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/mozilla-win32-talkback.zip (as always, be sure to delete your old Mozilla directory before installing the new one)
