[dogfood]phonebook doesn't work


(Core :: DOM: HTML Parser, defect, P3)

(Whiteboard: [PDT+][dogfood] [12/19])

Linux.  viewer, apprunner.

http://phonebook doesn't work.  I'm trying to look myself up,
I enter "mcafee" in the search text field, hit search.
No content loads, and I get:

Error: Can't load: http://phonebook/dsgw/bin/lang?context=default&file=phone.htm

Note, there is an SSL version of phonebook, separate bug
filed for that:

Eric -- can you take a look. This may be a forms submission problem.
This is still dead in the water for me.
This may be an https bug as well.  I noticed that the action of the phonebook
form is:

I changed it to:

And the form submitted correctly, and update the results frame, as expected.  To
see this modified version of the phonebook, go to:

Summary: phonebook doesn't work → https not working -> phonebook doesn't work
I'd say this was the problem.  Try browsing to this address:

In nav, it displays a "Required query/form input is missing" page
In gecko, it does not even update the window.

Not sure who to give thisto, but since this appears to be a networking issue,
I'm reassigning it to warren.
I'd like to keep SSL out of this bug, per my first comment.

I don't see SSL here!  Look at my first comment!
Back to warren, taking SSL out of summary.
Please let me know if I am wrong here.
I have SSL working, and phonebook is still not working. The error I get is
"Invalid or incomplete HTML form date. (missing form data element "mode")

This happens on a submit after http://phonebook loads.
are you seeing any error messages in the output of PSM?  are you seeing the
error -8191?
No, I don't see any error messages.

Gagan, can you check this one out?

ssl comes and goes. this might be a good thing to have working as a backup.
putting on the dogfood radar.

The phonebook is now point off to a https server during the post.  If you have
the commercial build and version 1.0 of cartman, this site works fine.
So you're saying it works? I guess the problem here is lack of user feedback
for failed urls/protocols, but that's a different bug.

This is no longer a bug.  I can successfully connect with the commercial build.
There is another bug regarding "No warning when mozilla can't connect to
high-encryption site" which is 17697.

Marking this bug as fixed.
I don't see security mode for this url when using 4.5,
dougt can you explain?
what do you mean a security mode?  The response from the post is a https

Phonebook is not working on any platform in todays build

1. I tried http://blueviper/forms/pb with a mozilla build and it worked fine.

2. I tried http://phonebook with a commercial build and cartman crashed on me.
I don't have source, so I can't tell you where.

3. After cartman crashes, if you try to go to another ssl site you hang forever

Seems like nsPSMComponent::GetControlConnection should either have a timeout or
attempt to restart cartman, or both.

Reassigning to dougt.

DVeditz: are we making any traction here? Can you get us an estimate for fixing
fix in hand.
does the fix stop the crash?  Using yesterday's build it went off to never never
land when submitting a query but didn't least in the few minutes we
Yes, this will fix both the crash and the infinite loop.

Reopening. Search for "unruh" will bring up only one name. On this screen, I
only see my name and the words "view card" - no phone number or other info.

Clearing FIXED resolution due to reopen.
cache related?  are form broken again?  changes to ssl/https have been minimal.
I don't think it's Necko-related.  I put a breakpoint in nsHTTPChannel::Open()
and clicked on the phonebook Search button and nothing happened.  No one is
calling the protocol handler to post the form data.
are you using the commercial build?
This is not an SSL or cartman problem.  If I try to go to the following URL,
only the partial page loads:
Whoops! I wasn't using the commercial build.

I tried the non-working URL you cite in your last report.  I found that it
doesn't load on Mozilla, even when the cache is disabled.  Also, I tried loading
that URL using NN4, saved it out to disk and opened the saved version with
Mozilla.  The result was similarly truncated, so I'm guessing this is a
layout/parser problem.

there are two bugs here.. one is a parser bug, the other is a phonebook html
bug.  It stops parsing the page at:  "<![if ! IE 5]>"  (this is from their
HTML).  I'm not sure WTF this is supposed to do, but the parser shouldn't bail
here.  I'm also not sure how to file a bug against phonebook :)

Based on pavlov's analysis (thanks pavlov) changing component and re-assigning
to parser (for the parser bug that he mentions)

Not an SSL problem, summary was triggering false matches
Pavlov -- the parser bug looks trivial. Can you please send me the HTML file
that you used? (With the fragment "<![if ! IE 5]>").
The problem is fixed in my tree. I'm awaiting a review and approval to check it

Searching for names in phonebook no longer produces an error message, but it
also doesn't find the names you search on.  Tried http:// and https:// with same
