Bentley VW repair manual on CD gives a "302 Moved temporarily" error.
This works in Netscape 4.7x and IE 5.5.

The initial start page is:
Mozilla gives a 302 error.
IE 5.5 lists the manual index.
If I click on a link in the index in IE and then copy the link to Mozilla.
Mozilla is able to display all the manual data for that link and appears to
navigate normally. Mozilla is incapable of displaying the index however.

The CD is accessed through a helper application/localhost.

Initial page source:

Robert, are you still experiencing this problem with Mozilla 1.0 or 1.1alpha (or
a more recent nightly build)?

Today I tried
with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020530, Opera 6,
IE6, NN4.73
Same result with all browsers: No connection to the server is possible

Can you see the proxy server/helper application Jrew.exe running in the task
manager? The application worked for me with Netscape 4.x and works currently
with IE5.5

robert: does this problem still exist w/ mozilla 1.2.1 or mozilla 1.3 beta?  if
so, could you please capture a mozilla HTTP log of the problem?  here's how:

0- make sure mozilla is not running (exit quick launch)
1- open a DOS prompt and type:
   C:\> set NSPR_LOG_MODULES=nsHttp:5
   C:\> set NSPR_LOG_FILE=C:\log.txt
   C:\> cd \path\to\mozilla
   C:\path\to\mozilla> .\mozilla.exe

2- reproduce the problem once mozilla comes up
3- exit mozilla

finally, just upload c:\log.txt to this bug report.  thx!

Mozilla started with Google as a homepage. Opened history and went to proxy
address. Closed Mozilla. Proxy app was running.
