Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021126
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021126

Under OS X, when connected directly to the Internet, Mozilla & Chimera fill in
the "www." and ".com" of a URL. When connected to a proxy server, they do not.
IE and OmniWeb do, so the bug appears to be on Mozilla's end.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Connect to a proxy server.  I have done this Privoxy and with an auto-config
server.
2.  Type "apple". 


Actual Results:  
Proxy server returned "no URL 'apple'"

Expected Results:  
Gone to www.apple.com

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021212
WFM with win2k and privoxy configured via procy.pac
Browser -> privoxy -> squid -> web

Charles, can you still reproduce this problem using a current nightly build?

Charles, what kind of proxy do you have?
Probably a dupe of 2875, if that makes any sense to anyone...

Strangely enough, I can confirm this using Camino/2004050308 (v0.8b) with
T-Online.de’s weird proxy (the details of which I do not know), but it WFM using
Mozilla-Mac/1.7b. The proxy returns:

Error 400 - Host name not recognized or host not found - URL http://apple/.
Explanation: The server could not connect to the requested hostname due to bad
syntax or an unknown host.

Action: Check to make sure the URL you entered is correct, and then retry your
request.

URL: http://apple/ 
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true

You'd probably have to look at your proxy logs to figure out why one works and
the other doesn't.
