image with backslash in URL not displayed
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:0.9.7) Gecko/20011221 BuildID: 2001122106 The page http://www.student.utwente.nl/~hardboard/evenementenfotos.html contains IMG tags with wrong URLs in it. The URLs contain backslashes. Example <img src="pictures\bordzager.jpg"> If I go directly to the image http://www.student.utwente.nl/~hardboard/pictures\bordzager.jpg then the URL is replaced by http://www.student.utwente.nl/~hardboard/pictures/bordzager.jpg and the image is displayed. The original page http://www.student.utwente.nl/~hardboard/evenementenfotos.html however does not display the image. It doesn't even display a broken image icon. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. visit the page 2. 3. Actual Results: same result Expected Results: show the image Part of the page: <html> <body background="bloem2.jpg" text="yellow" link="yellow" vlink="orange"> <img src="pictures\bordzager.jpg"> <br> De finale van de bikkelcontest 2001: Boardzagen <br> <img src="pictures\tafelsurfen.jpg"> <br> Tafelsurfen op de valentijnsnieuwjaarborrel 2001 <br> <br> <img src="pictures\HIDDO1.JPG"> <br> Oudhollands boardwerpen: Hiddo<br> <img src="pictures\JASPER1.JPG"> <br> Jasper heeft al moeit het board op te tillen. <br>
AFAIK a "\" is invalid.
Hi .. ~hardboard/pictures\bordzager.jpg that would mean: FILE pictures\bordzager.jpg in the directory ~hardboard... I know: MS IE would display the picture, because IE thinks \ and / are the same.. but mozilla does imho the right thing...
resolving WONTFIX .. maybe someone recalls the bug that this can be dup'd against?

According to bug 32895 this seems to have been fixed. I.e. the \ will only be escaped. The test URL http://www.undergrad.math.uwaterloo.ca/~dj3vande/rfc\compliance.html confirms this. However my Mozilla still (or again?) changes \ to /. On NT as well as on Win95. What I would expect is an error message if I request the wrong URL directly, and a page with broken image icons if they appear in a page. The current behaviour is inconsistent.
When does this happen? We still do it if you just put something like c:\path\file into the urlbar. Then it gets changed to file:///c|/path/file.
Well, it happens with 'http://' as well.
Well, that's bad, must be somewhere in the docshell ... I will investigate ...
The fixup happens inside nsDefaultURIFixup.cpp for http, https and ftp. I was under the impression this stuff has been dropped a long time ago. On windows we replace every \ with / when a http, https or ftp url is typed into the urlbar. This happens on the whole url, not only the directory-part, which is really, really wrong. In my opinion this fixup should only happen on windows when someone types something in the urlbar that looks like a filepath. Other then that this fixup should not happen at all. But that is outside the scope of this bug, which is really about a link containing a \ where it should be a /.
filed bug 122270 as a spinoff ...
