Details

From Bugzilla Helper:

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.
