From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020310 BuildID: 2002031005 The html source viewer very obviously re downloads the html source of a a page when you hit "view source" It doesn't even resend the post or get data, so on dynamic pages the source you see can have no relationship to the page you are actually viewing. Mozilla should cache the source of the current page and deliver that up as the source when you hit view source. That way you are actually seeing the source for the page you're viewing. OR, at the very least it should send in the post or get form data as if you had hit the refresh button so that there is a decent chance that you can get the same page. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Go to a dynamic web page. 2.mess with it. 3.view the source, and voilla, the source is the source for the original (un messed with) page, not the page you're viewing. Actual Results: source was source for baseline page, the one that is displayed if you don't send in any form variables. Despite the fact that I was clearly viewing a version of the dynamic page that is generated when form data is sent in. Expected Results: It should have showed me the actual source to the actual page I'm looking at, not the source to the baseline page at the same URL. This is a VERY severe problem. It makes Mozilla useless for debugging dynamic pages of any sort. There is no reason whatsoever why the browser should reconnect to a server to get source. The source is very small, just cache it. This should speed up source viewing as well.
