Description

16 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020530
BuildID:    2002053012

Whenever I use Mozilla 1.0 to login to a service that uses the default form
submit button the site is not resolved. However, if I login to a site that uses
an image for the form submit button there are no problems.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Fill in login form for the Motley Fool
2.Click on the "login" button
3.

Actual Results:  Pop-up window appears informing my www.fool.com could not be
resolved.

Expected Results:  Form should be submitted and my site home page displayed.

Works for me, if I use some random login data.
At least the submit button is ok.

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020530; Build
ID: 2002053012

Do you get forwarded after clicking on the button or does this happen before
anything gets loaded?
What happens if you try to log in with a wrong user name?
no blocker..

Reporter:
Have you installed Mozilla over an older build ?

If yes do this :
uninstall mozilla, delete all files in c:\programs\Mozilla.org\Mozilla\ (but
save your plugins) and reinstall mozilla.

If you still see the problem try "mozilla -profilemanager" and create an
additional test profile.
Severity: blocker → major

This was a first time install.

Some additional information that I've found. We use a proxy here and I
didn't have the Preferences/Advanced/Proxies I didn't have an SSL Proxy
defined. Defining an SSL Proxy resolved the problem. My confusion though is
why on a site where the submit button is an image rather than the standard
form submit button the submit event worked properly without an SSL Proxy
defined. I would have expected it not to work for both types.

Regarding your other question:

Do you get forwarded after clicking on the button or does this happen
before
anything gets loaded?

The answer is no I don't get forwarded. The pop-up error about not being
able to resolve the URL appears. Once you click OK in that dialog the
pop-up goes away but you are left where you were.

Was the page with the image also from fool.com? Or was it just some random form
with no SSL connection that therefore worked with your previous proxy settings?

So, if someone comes along with the right privileges, I think a

STATUS:     CLOSED
RESOLUTION: INVALID

would fit here :)
