For several releases of Mozilla (at least from 0.8), I have been unable to use the pulldown menu on the kingsfeature comics page to view previous comics. I get the image un-available graphic which comes up if you 'request' the image directly in the browser. Originally I thought it might be a JS problem but it looks more to be in how the HTTP request is being done for this image. I have been able to reach this page in IE on Windows, Konqueror and Netscape 4.7 so I figured it came up as behaviour that 'should' work (even if whatever the website is doing is broken.) [I opened a bug report long ago on another email address (email@example.com) but I hadnt heard anything on it before I left Red Hat in June. I tried to search for the bug here, but came up with nothing and thought I had better 're-open' the bug.] Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help debug this. I have tried to be helpful to Blizzard in the past on bugs that needed fixed.

i just tried the 2001121008 linux build and could not reproduce this problem. reporter, gavin: can you provide more information your network setup? ie. how are you connecting to the internet? thx!
Pretty standard setup as far as a I can tell. Linux Box (RH 7.2 + Blizzards latest mozilla RPM 2001120815) +-----100 baseT----+ | Masquerading Linux Box | Internet via Time Warner Cable. I went into Red Hat last week and duplicated it in their network also. My test of doing so was to go to http://www.kingfeatures.com/features/comics/safehavn/about.htm go to pull down menu in frame and pull down to Nov 14,2001 and let image autoload in. Get the 'Sorry this image is not available.'. Trying the solution that the Windows reporter listed (view image, reload) didnt work for me :(.
ok, ic the problem now.. thx!
notice that 4.75 is sending a referer whereas mozilla is not. i suspect this might be why the server decides to send mozilla an error page.
-> docshell docshell should assign the http referrer for this just as it would if a link on a page were clicked.

Summary: Mozilla unable to use page like Netscape 4.7x/Konqueror → Mozilla unable to use page like Netscape 4.7x/Konqueror [Referer not set when loading page from popdown menu]
-> Rick I think this may be covered by some work Rick is already doing.

Hi, is there anything I can do to help on this bug further? Code areas to peruse? Thanks..
Moving Netscape owned 0.9.9 and 1.0 bugs that don't have an nsbeta1, nsbeta1+, topembed, topembed+, Mozilla0.9.9+ or Mozilla1.0+ keyword. Please send any questions or feedback about this to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can search for "Moving bugs not scheduled for a project" to quickly delete this bugmail.
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9.9 → mozilla1.2
Just an update: There was a fix to referrer stuff being sent that went in early in the 0.9.9 cycle, which doesn't appear to have made a blind bit of difference. So, problem still there, 2002030508, win98SE.
this wfm with mozilla 1.1 installer linux
is this still a problem? or can we close this bug out... it seems to work for me... -- rick
I think the bug can be closed out. I just tried an old build on the system, and found that the problem no longer occured with the pages. The pages seem to have been redesigned after Netscape 7.0 came out, so I am guessing that if the problem still exists, it was fixed on the server side. [My apologies for not closing it sooner. I thought the fix had occured in the code, and didnt check the old box.]
