seen on mfcembed 2003-03-03-05-trunk

-goto a web page with links on it.
-click on one of the links
-after the page loads, click the back button

notice that the color of the link that was clicked is still the same. It should
have change to the visited link color.

note: visited link color works with todays linux embed app.

the same directory as this mornings full trunk mozilla build.

but install those two into a new/clean directory and the visited link doesn't work.

I'm seeing this bug too. Installed: 03-Mar-2003 13:04

on Windows 2000 with clean directory and cleared out Profile directory. Browsed 
Yahoo! and didn't see visited links. Checked Profile directory and no urls.txt 
file is being created. After I exited MFCEmbed, a urls.txt file was written 
into the Profiles directory. But after I reopened MFCEmbed, it's not displaying 
the visited links even though is written to urls.txt.

from non-embedding files. Tested against Yahoo! which showed visited links. 
Also, urls.txt is being written on exit from MFCEmbed here:
