When using mozilla 0.9.5 (released build from the binaries - not a nightly build or hand compiled from source) I get a an error on occasion that says that the page requested cannot be found. When I put my cursor on the URL line and hit enter (similar to a reload?), it will then grab that page. To verify that it was not part of the infrastructure at my office (such as a transparent proxy going nuts), I used Netscape under Linux and IE under win2k to perform the same test. As you can guess, the results were good for those browsers, as im filling out this bug report now. When requesting a "recently" visited page in Mozilla, this error happens -on occasion-. It is not easily reproduceable, but so far this is what I can do to generate it: 1) visit a web site that uses tables. 2) visit a link on within a table that is local to the website 3) visit another link within that table to another local page 4) attempt to visit the link that was visited in step 2, and get the error 5) attempt to visit the link that was visited in step 2 -again-, and actually get the page. Im using Linux kernel 2.4.6 on a SuSE 7.2 based IBM A22P laptop. Thanks for making mozilla my favorite browser!
I have had the same (or very similar) problem using build 2002011803 (and other recent nightly builds) on Win 2K. After heavy surfing, a bookmark will 'occasionally' fail to work: when I select the bookmark, the error message 'The file / cannot be found. Please check the location and try again.' is displayed. When this error occurs, I press Control + Reload (to reload the current page); invariably, I am then able to select the same bookmark and navigate successfully to the requested site.
This looks like a potential networking issue, rather than cache. Reporter, could you try to reproduce the problem after setting memory cache to 0 and disk cache to 0?
Created attachment 69980 [details] This is the error message that Mozilla displayted After the error shown in the attachment was displayed, I cleared the cache (both disk and memory). After I cleared the cache, I selected the exact same bookmark and was able to navigate successfully to the Dell site (no Mozilla errors). Wouldn't this suggest that the problem is in the cache?
I'm seeing this bug too, in build 2002021513 on Linux but also over the last month or so. I quite often leave a Mozilla window open for most of the day on my company's intranet, and if I've left it alone for a couple of hours and then click Back, I get the same "The file / could not be found" error. Also the stylesheet (which is in an external .css file) often fails to load. I also have http://www.mozilla.org/ as my startup page, and from time to time I see this error on startup as it tries to load the page. Further to previous comments, if I clear the cache the problem is solved. I have been browsing for the last few days with both Memory and Disk Cache set to 0, and have not seen any recurrence of the problem at all.
Reporter, are you by any chance running more than one *instance* of mozilla at the same time? That would definetely cause that.
this is most likely a dupe of bug 105746 i'm not going to mark it as such since the reporter didn't say whether he was running more than one instance of mozilla. reopen if you're still seeing this and *not* running multiple instances of mozilla
