Build: 2002031808, Mac OS 9.2 To reproduce: 1. In the address field, type http://mozilla.com 2. Press Enter 3. Realize your mistake, and press Backspace three times to delete the `com' What should happen: * The `com' is deleted. What actually happens: * Nothing.
Seems like this would be really easy to fix...
Arg. So that this bug doesn't get marked as a duplicate of bug 54321, a clarification: 3. Realize your mistake, and press Backspace three times to delete the `com', *before* anything new appears in the content area. That is, the browser should wait until stuff starts loading in the content area before switching focus to it.
We also shouldn't switch focus to the content area if the server returns an error such as 404, or if we're displaying a placeholder page such as "cannot find server". When fixing this, make sure that the way you call focus() doesn't cause the window to jump in front of other windows as soon as the page begins to load. (Is there a bug about the dual meaning of focus()?)
