From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.5) Gecko/20011011 BuildID: 2001101117 It seems that when you type in a url, mozilla seems to forget some of the previous urls, especially the last one used. I have spent a few minutes trying to characterize the problem, I will do the best I can :) I have my home page set to a blank page. If I click on a link in the browser, such as "The Mozilla Organization" in the button bar, it goes there fine. Then, I type in an address in the button bar such as "www.cnn.com". It goes there fine, but now, if I click on the back button or right click in the window and select back from the context menu, nothing happens. If I pull down the back button history list, the list is a little blank square. If I visit TWO pages using the button bar "The mozilla org..." and "Latest Builds", and then type in another address ("www.cnn.com"), the back history seems to have forgotten the second page "Latest Builds", but does remember the first page "The mozilla org...". Now here's the cooky part. If I click on back, I go to the first page, if I NOW click on forward, I go to the SECOND page which was forgotten originally. If I click forward again, I go to the third page, and now the back history is correct. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Load a fresh install of mozilla 0.9.5 on a W2K machine 2. Set home page to a blank page. (don't know if this is necessary) 3. quit mozilla and restart. 4. click on the "The Mozilla Organization" link on the button bar. 5. Type in www.cnn.com in the address bar and hit enter. 6. Try using the back functionality. -or- perform steps 1-4 above 5. click on the "Latest Builds" link 6. type in www.cnn.com in the address bar and hit return 7. notice that if you click on back, or look at the back history, the "mozilla.org" is the only item there. 8. click on back, then forward. 9. you will be brought to the "Latest Builds" page.
OK, I found out that bug 103978 really is the same thing. Sorry. I also found out that it ONLY seems to happen with www.cnn.com
just to save you the trouble, I am already marking this a duplicate of 103978. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 103978 ***
