The URL given above is a good example.

When displaying a file listing, mozilla is only showing the first 20 characters
for each file name.  There seems to be no good reason for such an arbitrary
cut-off point.  I don't remember older versions of Mozilla having this
limitation.

Here is a cut-and-paste of the display:

It's the web server that is truncating the file names here, not Mozilla.
When using the corresponding FTP url, all names are visible.

INVALID?

-> INVALID

The HTML Dirlist is sent from the Webserver, not made by mozilla..

With:
ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/Red_Hat_7x_RPMS/
Mozilla makes it's own list of the Directory content and this list is okay...

Thanks for using mozilla!
