There are, as yet, no warning messages displayed when a network error prevents a page from loading, or a newsgroup from being opened, etc. I'm thinking about DNS lookup failures, refused connections, servers down. I think this is pretty important from the user's perspective since it is usually not obvious why something isn't working in these cases. To reproduce: 1. Enter nonexisting URI in location field 2. Press enter Actual result: Throbber indicates page loading, progress bar shows "Document: Done", but no new page is displayed Expected result: A window with a warning message a la NS 4.x's "Netscape is unable to locate the server xyz. Please check the name and try again."
Mass move of all bugs without target milestones to M13.
Bulk move of all Networking-Core (to be deleted component) bugs to new Networking component.

Summary: No warnings on error messages → No network error messages thru dialog
updating the summary.
Subsumes 14696. Probably a dup of something else too, but I can't find it now.
Socket transport needs to propagate up the right error codes, and the webshell needs to notice them.
Sorry, wrong bug.
DNS failure dialog is in. So is un-registered protocol. We need to throw dialogs when a server is resolvable, but not connectable (either it's down or won't accept a connection on that port).
I noticed that there's also no error message for FTP file not found problems: go to ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/test Actual result: Console shows "Error loading URL ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/test" but otherwise nothign happens Expected result: File not found error message

I have a fix for the rest of this. Awaiting review.
fix checked in 1/24/00 7:50 pm pac time. I just added error capturing and dialog throwing for connection_refused errors and socket timeout errors.

Would you be responsible also for local file errors (file not found, permission denied)? Bug 26097.
