User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20030925 Build Identifier: Dont know / not needed I reported an error on a page (since mozilla didnt showed it correctly =) ) The paged worked fine with IE - however it was an error on the page. The programmer had written <embed src="file:///C:localpath/code.swf"> (or maybe his MS-tool had ??) and the text should have been <embed src="code.swf"> A real bug in the code and NOT in mozilla. I think what mozilla is doing is correct, but I guess MS wont listen if I complain about their browser =) The problem is that things like this makes people think. MS-IE shows this pages correctly - Mozilla dont. IE is cool. Mozilla sucks. (And that is a shame) So I suggest that mozilla act as IE in that matter. I mean if a file does not exists cut of the path and test again. Maybe show a messagebox with yes/no or an error or turn something like the blocker on to show errors on the page could follow but the main thing is the pages should be shown which IE does. I could have choosen a component, but I guess finding out weather a file exists does not regard only the tag <embed> and maybe it not even just the HTML that needs this change. regards and thanks for a good browser =) Thorbjørn Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
this is totally wontfix. we should not mangle the url completely just because it doesn't exist.

Was there an <object> wrapped around that <embed>? I sincerely doubt IE goes looking for random files like you think it does...
But yes, this is wontfix in any case.
Verified. I couldn't make Internet Explorer behave as you described, and I seriously doubt this, it isn't logical (it would be a security hole the size of the aircraft carrier, with room to spare). Reporter, if you have a URL that demonstrate this behaviour, please post it in this bug. Thx.
