Viewing the above URL displays the word concat instead of the real text that was there which is open.

Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

I looked at a perl script which calls open. Every occurance of the word open is
replaced with the 
word concat. Everything else is correct. We reduced the problem down to a
minimal example using the above URL. If I fetch the file using lynx I see open.
If I use mozilla I see concat.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Visit the above URL
2.Look at the work in line 2.
3.It will display concat even though the file on the server says open.

Actual Results:  
I see concat.

Expected Results:  
It should have displayed open.

Sorry. none.

I tried viewing the file locally and the open displayed as open. It only failed
for me by displaying concat using the above URL

http://davesource.com/Bugs/mozilla.2.example
Worksforme on that URL with a current build.... Does clearing the cache help?

This is probably caused by a filtering proxy like privoxy, see bug 175201.

This is confirmed. It is privoxy that is causing the problem. The lastest
version of privoxy also dos it but differently. (Instead of open ==> concat it's
open ==> some privoxy_prefix_concat.

Does this bug need to be reopened as a privoxy bug or does a new bug get created?
It gets marked duplicate of the existing bug....

privoxy is doing exactly what it's designed to do, if I understand what it does
correctly... perhaps it has a setting to turn off this behavior.
