Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

If user_pref("general.useragent.override") is set to "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible;
MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)", Mozilla should crash when typing "about:<input type
crash>" in the location bar, like the IE does. Well, it doesn't. That's bad
emulation, folks! :)



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.change user_pref("general.useragent.override") to "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible;
MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)"
2.type about:<input type crash> in the location bar


Actual Results:  
nothing :)

Expected Results:  
something :)

try:
<fieldset style="position:fixed;">
<legend>
IE-EMULATION.
</legend>
</fieldset>

it's not the real thing, but an incredible emulation!

Would just like to add to this completely irrelevant bug the comment that 
about:<input type>  actually does nothing in IE/Outlook.

You need an actual page.

about:<input type *>
entered into adress-bar results in a crash, at mine and at many other systems. 
And I think this bug report is quite funny.
