Session history doesn't distinguish between case insensitive URL's
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; NetBSD i386; en-US; rv:1.3.1) Gecko/20030527 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; NetBSD i386; en-US; rv:1.3.1) Gecko/20030527 When following a link from one page to a second page, where the second page has the same url except for a different case, the mozilla session history does not distinguish between the two pages. eg. The session history seems to consider "http://www.somewhere.com/page.html" equivalent to "http://www.somewhere.com/PaGe.html" -- even if the web server considers them different and returns different pages. This means, for example, that the back button will ignore the original page, causing to either jump back to the page before the original page, or be disabled. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open http://www.mcs.vuw.ac.nz/~jester/misc/moztest/Cap_Back_Test.html in a new window or tab, so that there's no history for the window. 2. Click the link to visit the other page where the URL is in all lower case. Actual Results: The back functionality is not available to return to the original page. Expected Results: Mozilla should have distinguished between the two pages, so that the original page could be returned to by pressing the back button, for example. Also replicated in Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030704 Debian/1.4-1.
