The history contents all visited addresses and pops them up quickly after typing in some letters into the URL locator bar. But with http://www.newsforge.net it does not work though I can find it in the history. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Visit http://www.newsforge.net 2. Visit another place 3. Type in "www.news" into the URL locator bar Actual Results: Nothing happens though the address is stored in the history. Expected Results: It should have offered the whole address "http://www.newsforge.net" for selection in the history list below the URL locator bar. This happens at least since Mozilla 1.2
Problem is, we're not treating a 301 redirect as meaning we should save the entry in urlbar history....
This is a redirect issue. If you enter a address that is then redirected the address is not added to the history. It should be added to the histroy. I have verified it on the Linux Platform using Mozilla 1.4 build 2003052807.
this worksforme (sorta). typing "www.news" gives me www.newsforge.com, which seems to be the current behavior (bug 112208 covers not storing www.newsforge.net, assuming it was typing into the URL bar).
this worksforme more now than before... at step 3, I get www.newsforge.net and www.newsforge.com resolving WORKSFORME
