User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; de-AT; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; de-AT; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312

HTTP/1.1 302 redirect should be handelt correctly. In Mozilla its only works
(for me) if I don't use a proxy. But it works with no problems in earlier
version (e.g. 1.2.1).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Mozilla
2. Surf to www.ebay.de (or www.ebay.com)
3. Klick on "mein ebay" (my Ebay) 
(=http://cgi1.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?MyEbayLogin)
4. Sign in
5. go back to www.ebay.de (.com)
6. Click "my ebay" again (you have to wait 30 secs until the new page is displayed)


Actual Results:  
I had to wait 30 secs bevor the new page is displayed. I used also Proxomitron
(www.proxomitron.org) to check the HTTP headers and the active connections.
Mozilla closes the connection after he gets the 302 header for about 30 secs.
After that the new location of the header is called.

Expected Results:  
Redirect to new Location (see header) without waiting.

I also used the http://webtools.mozilla.org/web-sniffer/ and I am getting
strange results. 

For example use the Sniffer for www.amazon.de,
cgi1.ebay.de/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?MyEbayLogin , or any other side using a 302
header. Sometimes it gets the header correctly sometimes mozilla gets nothing.

Example:
http://webtools.mozilla.org/web-sniffer/view.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fcgi1.ebay.de%2Faw-cgi%2FeBayISAPI.dll%3FMyEbayLogin&verbose=on

input url:
http://cgi1.ebay.de/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?MyEbayLogin

fully qualified url:
http://cgi1.ebay.de/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?MyEbayLogin

will send these HTTP Request headers:
Accept:
text/xml,application/xml,application/xhtml+xml,text/html;q=0.9,text/plain;q=0.8,video/x-mng,image/png,image/jpeg,image/gif;q=0.2,*/*;q=0.1
Accept-Charset: ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7
Accept-Language:
de,de-at;q=0.9,de-de;q=0.8,de-li;q=0.6,de-lu;q=0.5,de-ch;q=0.4,en;q=0.3,en-us;q=0.1
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; de-AT; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312
Host: cgi1.ebay.de

calling gethostbyname_r() on
cgi1.ebay.de
succeeded

calling connect()
succeeded



But using this link should redirect me to "my ebay" because I already signed on
and the cookie was saved.
