When you open a new tab to a internetpage while your connection is down, it will
open a tab, but the adress-box isn't filled in, so you can't press refresh.  The
tab-title says (Untitled).  It would be much better when the url would be filled
in, so you could easy press refresh when your connection is up agian.  Now, you
have to close the tab, and press the link again so it opens in a new tab.  I
have some problems with my connection and i got disconnected every few hours, so
it happens to me alot.  I don't think it is hard to code so the url is filled in
before the page is loaded.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a page with a link
2. disconnect
3. middleclick that link
4. a new tab will open, but the page won't load (since you are not connected)
5. reconnect
6. press refresh

Actual Results:  
the page doesn't show up since the rul isn't filled in

Expected Results:  
the page should show up

it happens when the host is unreachable, so not only when the connection is
down, also when the host of the page itself is down

If you press the home button do the four pages load, Firebird has support for
multiple home pages that are seperated by a | character.
To fix this go to tools >> options >> general >> Homepage locations.

To test with a new profile 
1) right click on the shortcut you use to launch Firebird select properties from
the menu 
2) In the Target text box add a space and -p outside the quotes.  
3) Start Firebird, the profile manager should appear before the browser starts
4) click the manage profiles
5) click the Create Profle button
6) click the next button
7) Name the profle Test, then click the finish button. 
8) Select the profile Test 
9) click the start MozillaFirebird button.  
10) Try to reproduce the problem, and give us feedback on what happend.

After you are done testing close Firebird and re-start so you can clean up what
was changed.

1) click the manage profiles
2) select the Test profile and click the delete profile
3) remove the -p from your shortcut

it's not a dupe, but it is related, 157004 is with the error-pages enabled, this
bug is when the error pages are disabled.
