Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030728 Mozilla Firebird/0.6.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030728 Mozilla Firebird/0.6.1

When you click on an image that contains a < ... onclick="history.back()"> in
its HTML tag, it will take you back to the previous page in Mozilla Firebird's
history.

However, it never works again.  In my example above you can try it by clicking
on the image at right.  The large version on the next page has an
onclick="history.back()", and you can do it once, but never again.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to any page.
2. Navigate to a page with an image whose tag contains onclick="history.back()"
3. Click the image.  You'll be sent to the original page in item 1.
4. Navigate to another page with an image whose tag contains
onclick="history.back()".  It does NOT have to be the same page as in item 2.

Actual Results:  
You hear your mouse click.

Expected Results:  
You should be sent back to the previous page in your history (a split second
after you hear your mouse click).

Worksforme with the 20030808 build on W2K.

Ed, please download a current nightly and start it with a fresh profile (by
executing mozillafirebird.exe with the -p switch) check back here.

I am now on Linux, where I confirmed that the bug also existed in 0.6.1, just as
on Windows.  I have downloaded the nightly and it works fine works.  So I have
marked this FIXED.  In future I'll try the nightly first.

Thanks,
Ed

FIXED is only used when you can pinpoint an issue to a checkin.
Use worksforme for such things in the future
