Not a JavaScript Engine issue. JavaScript Engine deals with the abstract 
JavaScript programming language. Specifically, the low-level objects
such as String(), Number(), Date(), and RegExp(). The JS Engine does not
contain browser or DOM objects like window, document, trees, etc.

Reassigning to Browser-General until we can get more information.
The site WORKSFORME using Mozilla trunk binary 2002121908 on WinNT.
The tree in the left frame expands properly, and any link I click
opens the proper content in the right-hand frame.


1. I notice your build is from September. Could you try an
   up-to-date build and see if that fixes the problem? If so,
   you can resolve this bug as WORKSFORME.

If not,

2. Are there any errors in Tools > Web Development > JavaScript Console?
   (be sure to clear it of any previous errors first)

3. What setting do you have in View > Character Coding?

OS -> FreeBSD until it's reproduced on another OS.
Is the URL still valid, as I get a 500 server error.
OS: All → FreeBSD

No problem on 2003-02-14-09 CVS build on FreeBSD 4.7.
This should be WFM.

WFM (Mozilla 1.3.1 on FreeBSD 5.1). Marking WFM as well as changing test URL
from to , since the old test URL seems to be broken by
now. If somebody can still reproduce this bug with a recent build, then feel
free to reopen it.
