IE 6, run on the same box, does not have this problem. As a result, firebird 0.6.1 can't resolve URL using the host name specified in the hosts file, while IE 6 can.</p> Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. assume your local subnet is 111.222.333.x 2. put an entry in c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts for a host on this subnet, e.g. "111.222.333.2 MyLinuxBox" 3. fire up firebird 0.6.1. Direct firebird to "http://MyLinuxBox". Actual Results: a. firebird tries to resolve this URL for awhile and then goes out to the internet to try to find something close, returning something like http://my.stupidsite.com/MyLinuxBox.html. b. Try the same thing in IE 6. c. IE 6 immediately resolves the host correctly, as specified in c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts Expected Results: Firebird should have checked c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts, found the entry for MyLinuxBox, and resolved the URL http://MyLinuxBox to 111.222.333.2, as listed in that hosts entry.
sorry about the extraneous html tags; I'm a bugzilla newbie.
This occured on my office box, which might be running firebird 0.6 instead of 0.6.1. Will double check on Aug 11 03
