The location bar does not show any URLs. FYI, session history is also broken.
Problem can be corrected by installing Mozilla into a new directory. This seems to be related to a number of other problems involving the installer (uninstalling via "add/remove" then installing new version in same location has bugs).
reporter (Peter): can you reproduce this bug with a recent build of mozilla (for example, 1.2alpha)? if so, please comment again with details. if not, please resolve this bug as WORKSFORME. thanks.
Seems to work in 1.1b (2002090415), but I now install successive Windows releases in new directories as I do for Linux.
thanks for the response. verified.
