View Page Source sends GET even if displayed page was produced by POST
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.5) Gecko/20011012 BuildID: 2001101201 I've provided a page that illustrates the problem. It seems that if a page is generated via HTTP POST (with form inputs), and one clicks View Page Source, Mozilla performs a seperate request via GET to retrieve the source. The example also explains this in further detail once you've hit View Page Source. While I have no idea what should govern when resubmitting something via HTTP POST, I'm confident that the current behavior is clearly wrong (and mystifying). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Go to http://michael.bacarella.com/playground/breakmozilla.html 2.Fill in the fields. Try "Foo" and "Bar" 3.Read the resulting page. Actual Results: The page source being displayed is absolutely not the page that was rendered in the browser. Expected Results: Ditto.
