This is in the precompiled M11 Linux binary. In Communicator 4.x, an error dialog appears, which is much nicer. Also, a URL like file://asdfsa/ shows the / directory of localhost. Instead, like 4.x, it should complain that it can't find the server asdfsa. It doesn't make a difference whether I type the URL directly into the location text box, or use the Open File menu (and type in a non-existent file into the file dialog). The text output looks like this (from first trying file:///asdf, then file://asdfa: Document file:///asdf loaded successfully Document: Done (0.697 secs) FindShortcut: in='file://asdf' out='null' failed to set the page title. Document file://asdf/ loaded successfully Document: Done (1.116 secs)
The other problem with this is that the "blank screen" shown for a missing file is not added to the history, so when you go back, you go back to whatever you were on *before* the the page that had the link to the missing file.

This looks like a webshell issue... Someone needs to look at the result from OnEndDocumentLoad(...) and display an error page...
Resetting QA Contact.
Confirmed blank page and no error notification with 1999-12-08-08-M12 nightly binary on Windows NT 4.0sp3 Here is the relevant console output: >FindShortcut: in='file:///.html' out='null' >Error: Can't load: file:///.html (8052e891) >Error loading URL file:///.html >Document: Done (0.661 secs) The problem mentioned by dbaron in his 11/22/99 comment about [Back] not working properly after the file:/// load failure looks very much like bug 13329 "Generic problem with history - skips pages when going back" - probably fixed now. At least, the history is working for me in this case, and it does look like there is already a bug for this.

M15: Problem relayed by David Baron (1999-11-22) - blank screen No longer happens (previous page continues to be displayed) There is still no error message when a file is not found (as in Comm 4.x).
Adding mostfreq keyword, and adding "finger" to summary (see dup bug 33132).
Summary: Missing file: URL gives a blank page display → Missing file: or finger: URL gives a blank page display
Nominating for rtm as a mostfreq (hoping... ;-) We really should have this. How come this bug fell through the net? Gerv
adding myself to the cc list. valeski, you want me to investigate this?
mscott, do you own a duplicate of this?
Are we really getting huge numbers of complaints from beta users about this? Since the fix for this requires a new dialog and it's too late for UI changes, I'm marking this rtm-. (Since there isn't already a patch, it's not likely to make the train in any case.)
Whiteboard: [PDT-] → [PDT-][rtm-]
Setting milestone to something more sane than "M16". Valeski, if you have better thoughts on this, please change it again :-) Gerv
Target Milestone: M16 → mozilla0.9
I didn't notice this one before - ftp doesn't report errors either. Neither does gopher (not in the tree yet) or about: (Although about prints a couple of NS_ENSURE_TRUE assertions). Retitling, and nominating for moz 0.9 about: may be separate - the others all bring up the directory tree componant.

this really applies to all protocols, it just happens that with HTTP, the server reports many of the errors by simply sending some HTML content to the client. this makes it appear as though HTTP is handling errors, when really it is doing nothing more than displaying content from the server. in general, error reporting from necko, needs much attention.
> this really applies to all protocols, it just happens that with HTTP, the > server reports many of the errors by simply sending some HTML content to the > client. Use mozilla to go to http://invalid.foo. There's a pop-up telling you that the domain doesn't exist. This popup doesn't appear with ftp, or gopher or datetime, or finger. ftp and gopher use the directory viewer, so that could be hijacking it, but datetime and finger don't, so there goes that explanation :) I'm not using a proxy. This may be a separate bug though.
Just for the record, using TestProtocols for http (or gopher) on an invalid domain prints out the fact that there was a DNS error, while this doesn't occur for ftp: ./TestProtocols http://invalid ftp://invalid gopher://invalid Warning: MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME not set.

dougt: do you have another bug tracking this for FTP?
Darin, there isn't one bug on this specifically. However, I believe that I have already fixed this in the currect changes that I am working on. If you like, you can assign this bug to me and I will see that ftp and file both get fixed. Or maybe it is better to spawn a bunch of bugs with block this bug?
Doug, yes.. let's make this a meta bug. I'll leave it to you to add the appropriate blocker bugs for ftp:// and file://.
Since this applies to all of necko, I'm pushing the target milestone back to mozilla1.0. Dougt has other bugs tracking this problem for file:// and ftp:// with more aggressive targets.

This has regressed yet further: there's no feedback now for http URLs either. E.g. go to http://mozillaHasNoErrorFeedback.com -- it spins on "resolving host" then changes to "Document: Done" showing a blank page and no error message. (With a 6/25 build.) Or is this http problem covered by a different bug?
Whoops, turns out that was specific to the 6/25 build; in 6/27 the dialog is back for http urls.
yes, this is a different bug which has been fixed. please try a more recent build.

*** Bug 100307 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Entering a duff URL such as file:///c|fdsf/sdfsdfsd appears to partially work. It generates the correct error message in an alert box but the content area is displays "<html><body></body></html>" as text.
I see that (empty html source in the content area) fairly frequently for http urls that do exist. It's sporadic, and hitting reload usually gives me the real page. I don't often see it for nonexistant file urls. I think it's an unrelated problem, don't know whether there's a bug filed or not.
I have a patch. It seems like the right thing to do, but I'd like confirmation.
oh boy :-) This opens up a very old can of worms :-) I believe the current behavior of the FileChannel is due to an (outdated?) assumption that OnStopRequest *must* be paired with OnStartRequest. I'm pretty sure that this assumption is violated elsewhere... and i'm not even sure if necko still publically has this requirement... If pairing OnStart/OnStop is no longer necessary, then the attached patch looks correct... Otherwise, I think that we'll need to fix the problem upstream, by Calling GetStatus(...) and checking for failure... in some stream listener implementation... i'm cc'ing darin to get the 'official' word on whether OnStart/OnStopRequest *must* be paired or not... --rick
I think that they must be paired, and in fact they are. What was happening was that the onstart was succeding, so we tore away the document. Then we got the onstop, and popped up the dialog box, and got about:blank for our troubles. Now the onstart fails, so something (uriloader? docshell?) doesn't remove the document, and the onstop checks the error. Thats a guess - I haven't traced the code. Does that sound right, though?
OnStartRequest must be paired with an OnStopRequest ... no exceptions! r=darin on the patch... i forgot to add that line when i added the code to inherit mStatus from the underlying file transport. thanks for fixing this :-)
taking. darin: actually, now that I look at the code again, no other protocol does that :) Whats special about file channels?
Assignee: adamlock → bbaetz
the error is known by the time OnStartRequest is fired, so we should make sure the channel's status is correctly up-to-date. this same idea applies to all channels... even if it is not yet implemented (similarly) elsewhere.
Comment on attachment 50320 [details] [diff] [review] patch actually, on second thought, i don't understand how this patch helps with anything. returning failure from OnStartRequest causes the request to be canceled. however, the request should already be "canceled" since there was a file transport error. we need to better understand why this fix helps, because it can't be the correct fix.
darin and I looked at this, and I've come up with a uriloader patch. mscott: you checked the original version of this code in way back when - why did you only check for one specific error code (see the patch)
Status: NEW → ASSIGNED
i'm not convinced that this is correct... mscott: please advise.
No, this breaks ftp, possibly as a side effect of bug 101128, or we could just not be updating the status. I think its the right thing to do though.
ProcessCanceledCase cuts off the m_targetStreamListener, making the OnStopRequest basically a nop. this means that the code which handles UNKNOWN_HOST in nsWebShell wouldn't get called, right??
But it works! Try it an see. Without my patch, though, I don't see how we avoid destroying the current page for an dns failure with http. mscott? rpotts? Also note that http is the only protocol to get the error stuff right, and it only has connection level errors. This does not fill me with confidence that copy-and-paste of existing code is the right thing to do. Is there a primer on how webshell/docshell/uriloader/necko are meant to interact?
OK, now that the duplicate-on-stop patch has gone in for ftp, this is good. _and_ the dns errors for ftp, which load about:blank currently, as for file are fixed by this. I am now convinced that this is the correct thing to do. However, I'd really like some feedback as to why this was done in the first place. Please?

This is basically the same patch as bug #106558 :-) i'll leave it open until i land that patch, though -- so i don't lose all of the blocking bugs... -- rick
Depends on: 106558
I've been trying to get review on this for almost 5 weeks now from mscott. (I mailed you on Friday, but you probably haven't got it yet, given what I've been hearing about the network update) I still haven't got an answer to the "why was it done this way in the first place" question....
welcome to the club :-) the code was originally added to fix bug #40116... however, over time it has been scaled back. first, the call to ProcessCanceledCase() was removed from OnStopRequest(...). i believe that the call to ProcessCanceledCase() in OnDataAvailable(...) is unnecessary because it should always be safe to call the consumer with data - even if an error has occurred... that just leaves the call within OnStartRequest(...) :-) i bet that the original patch was scoped very narrowly to just fix the immediate problem (back then NS_BINDING_ABORTED was about the only error code that could be passed to OnStartRequest)... so i believe that short-circuiting on any FAILURE in OnStartRequest(...) is safe too... -- rick
I've checked the patch in for bug #106558. So this bug should be fixed too.
