Description

20 years ago
Go to this page (just a generic AOL page) and click on the banner advertisement.
The URL for the ad banner probably looks something like this:
http://ads.web.aol.com/link/ number /aol

You'll get an error from AOL's web server saying something about a "missing
cookie."

Now go back (hit the back button) and click on the ad banner again. This time,
their redirect CGI works (presumably accepting a cookie that hadn't been sent
the first time).

I just tried this and did not get any error message -- I clicked on the add and
it came up just fine.  But it was not the add mentioned in this report.  So I
decided to go to that add page directly.  In that case I did indeed get the
message indicated.  But since I didn't come there through a link, it might well
be that that page is expecting something that I wasn't giving it by going to it
directly.

Furthermore, I then brought up the 4.5 browser and went directly to that add
page.  Again I got the error message.  So this is apparently normal behavior for
this page.  Therefore closing the bug report out as INVALID.

Changing all Networking Library/Browser bugs to Networking-Core component for
Browser.

Occasionally, Bugzilla will burp and cause Verified bugs to reopen when I do
this in a bulk change.  If this happens, I will fix. ;-)

Bulk move of all Networking-Core (to be deleted component) bugs to new
Networking component.
