As I've illustrated in the image. I don't if this is a input line problem... it could be. But the thing is - I had the same problem in the messenger, while trying to load an attached URL - it somehow had a OLD URL I entered previously in memory, report that http://x.x couldn't be found on server y.y. Ah well. Using M11 (1999-10-14-13) + MacOS 8.6.
Does this happen every time you want to post a bug-report?
This is NOT specific to the bug posting thing. It's global, don't matter if I've tried to post a bug, or read ./
I don't see this at all on linux. There was something similar some time ago which directed a failed host lookup to localhost instead, but that's solved. Maybe Mac specific. Could you give a clear path, like load URL1 then type in URL2 and get 404?
No, not really... it seems to be quite random. Sort of. I didn't experience on the win32 build I tested at school.
Great, this will be a nice one to find. Seems to be Mac specific. Someone with similar experiences? CCing gordon.
while gordon gets a chance to investigate this it will be great if you could help make this bug reproducible. thx.
It happens very often to me, but I can't describe it in a better manner than I have already done.
if there is work avaiable to checkin for m12 let me know, else m13.

I don't see this problem, anymore. I'm marking it works for me. Odd, let me know if you still see this. If you have anymore information on how to reproduce it, that would be great.
I haven't seen it in the most recent nightly builds.

i have seen this bug in mozilla from 0.9.5 to 0.9.8, compiled from freebsd ports. here is a thread from freebsd-questions list discussing it... mozilla does irrelevant search instead revisiting page http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&lr=lang_en&th=f06f0dce0306401f&rnum=1
I haven't seen this for a long time myself. Is it really reproducable in later builds?
odd, if you are asking me, then i was bothered by it just this morning (mozilla v0.9.8 on freebsd). i have apache running on localhost. on one of the pages is a link to freebsd (http://www.freebsd.org/). after going here & there in local pages, when i click the link, i am presented w/ the (page on) local web root directory, even though mozilla claims to connect to freebsd.org, and shows the freebsd url in the location bar (but that's another bug). after repeated tries, or playing w/ cache, or restarting mozilla seems to work as expected.
well, my problems seem to be related to junkbuster/proxy. after disabling "entable keep alive", i don't get the old server for the new url anymore.
