When you use the steps to reproduce it it's reproducable every time but in other
cases it is not reproducable. In normal case, for example when I use no special
sign, I get the stats of the player or in other Browsers like Konquerer even
with the special sign.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.When you go on "Spielersuche" an you type a nick with a special sign like
yoursweet666© the parameter gets lost.

Actual Results:  
I get the failure that I am not logged in correctly. The problem is definitly
not at the script of the page. Every other Browser gives the right result!

Expected Results:  
It should show the stats of the player!

the configuration of my OS is normal and I am using the default theme "Modern"!

Character-handling in the browser; not a JS Engine issue.

Don't know if this should go to Form Submission, International, 
or DOM. Let's reassign to Form Submission as a guess.


I can't find "Spielersuche" on the first page at
Do we need a login to see the bug? If so, could you create a test ID and 
password at this site, say:

                Login    = mozilla
                Password = bugzilla

Kai: thanks!

I was able to log in successfully. The next page I came to had the 
"Spielersuche" textbox at the lower right. I entered "yoursweet666©"
into the "Spielersuche" textbox and hit the "Go!" button. 

Confirming bug with Mozilla trunk binary 20021015xx on WinNT.
just as Kai reports, I got a child window saying (in German)
that I was not properly logged on.

After this failure, I looked at the source of some of the HTML:

<script language="JavaScript">


function openProfile()

Profile.moveTo(100,50); }


We can see the string "yoursweet666©" is part of the URL used in a
call to, which gets called immediately via openProfile().

Perhaps that's where the bug is triggered. In which case, is this 
related to the recent bug involving special characters?

If I save the source in Attachment #4 [details] [diff] locally and try to open it, 
it tries to do the we saw in Comment #3. Mozilla
brings up the alert shown below saying it can't find the file:"profile.php?name=yoursweet666©&id=1615&sess_id=   etc. )

ALERT: "The file /C:/profile.php?name=yoursweet666%A9%26id%3D1615%26se
cannot be found. Please check the location and try again"

The point is not that it can't find the file, but the behavior of the
URL string after the '©' sign is escaped to '%A9'. This is exactly what's
happening in bug 174628, but I can't tell if that's what's causing 
the problem in this bug, too -

Notice all the %26 between name value pairs.
