pollmann- is this your area ? 1. Go to any URL which accept form text input, such as http://home.netscsape.com/ja 2. type some Latin 1 and non-latin1 text and submit 3. Click "back" 4. The Latin 1 text in the form text field will be remember, but the non latin1 part will be remember as '.' instead.
Note that depending on which search engine page you use, you might see only the blank field (i.e. nothing) when the Back button is pressed. Yahoo Japan and Netscape Japan pages are are like this: http://www.yahoo.co/jp/ but Lycos Japan page returns dots for Japanese characters. http://www.lycos.co.jp/ In any case, we should be seeing the original input in all of these cases instead of dots or blanks.
Yes, this is probably a bug in the frame state storing or retrieval code. I'll take a look, thanks!
Correction on URL. Yahoo Japan Page is: http://www.yahoo.co.jp/
Moving to M14, guessing I won't be able to get this in tomorrow.
** Update with 1/27/00 Win32 M14 build ** Now I see simply a blank form field with all the above search URLs when I press the Back button. And it does not have to be a non-ASCII input. ASCII input also has the same problem.
The form inputs not being remembered at all is bug 13537. I'm marking as a dependency as we need that fixed before we can work on this.
Depends on: 13537
Moving non PDT+ bugs out.
Target Milestone: M14 → M15
Bug 13537 was fixed on 2/11. We should retest and update this bug report. cc'd roberts to get opinion on need for Beta1. If users are shopping or requesting info and clicking through 1 or more forms, often they need to go back and enter missing or erroneous data. How important is this for Beta1?
This is important to report non ASCII related bug by using SeaMonkey with Bugzilla. If intl users using SeaMonkey to report bug on Buzilla and put down some non ASCII text, and he jump to other page to collect some data, when he return, the non-ASCII part will trun into ... . Put beta1 keyword into this.
Marking PDT- for beta1. It's getting too late to go for these.
This might be a dup of bug 29521.
this is not a DUP of 29521. IT is DEPNEND on 29521. You need to fix 29154 first before this get fix.
remove [PDT-]. sfraser already fix 29521. Please consider this PDT+ again. We need to fix 29154 first to fix this since that bug is ONE of the reason which trash the data.
