View/Source shows page with "<html><body></body></html>". The latter should not happen, and an error should be flagged in the first place. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: point mozilla to any url that returns no data Expected Results: report error + show empty "view source"
networking. Should we really error on no data? That was such an annoying NS4 behavior...

If a dialog is too annoying, how about a nice error page? I find it much more annoying not to be told that there has been an error - since most of the time the delivery of empty pages _is_ in fact a server problem.
I've said we need a message that says "this file is empty", and perhaps a tex/emtpy-file mime type to go with it.
CONFIRMED: We have no URL, but I'm certain this happens here.
