Build Date & Platform Bug Found: Win32 commercial seamonkey build 2000-01-03-09-m13 installed on P166 Win98 macos commercial seamonkey build 2000-01-03-08-m13 installed on G3/400 OS 8.6 Overview Description: Under the "Messenger start page" section located in the mailnews category, if you choose a local file on your hard disk, it will incorrectly specify the url. For example, these are valid urls: file:/c:/junk/test.html /c:/junk/test.html On Windows and Mac, it forgets the beginning "/" or "file:/". I can work around the problem by typing in the missing character(s) Steps to Reproduce: 1) Launch Seamonkey The browser page opens. 2) Select the Edit|Preference 3) Highlight the "mail and newsgroup" category 4) Under the Messenger start page section, click on the "select file" dialog 5) Choose a html file on your local drive 6) Press OK The dialog is dismissed and the url is displayed in the location field C:\1junk\test.html Actual Results: The url/path is incomplete. The start page will not load. In some instances, my folders do not list. Expected Results: It should automatically put in the "file:/" text in the path. It should behaves like 4.7 which does put "file:/" text. Additional Builds and Platforms Tested On: This problem occurs on mac and win32 2000-01-02-09-m13 commercial seamonkey build. Additional Information: On Linux, I could not test because of bug 22780, but it should have the same problem. http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=22780

Putting on PDT- radar for beta1. Would not hold beta for this.
see comments in 22961. If this turns out to be a url parsing problem after you apply the suggestion in 22961, than the bug is nsFileSpec related.
