Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040316
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040316

The given page works perfectly well in Mozilla 1.6 but in 1.7b it acts quite
funny. (All of the pages inside the OTN forums at forums.oracle.com act this
same way.)

Links and image references in the page are having a bogus port (3302) added to
their URLs. This bogus port is not in the HTML source visible from View Source,
but it is visible in the status bar on hovering over links (or when clicking),
in Page Info, and it causes images not to load (since no server exists on that
port).

For example, take this link from the page:

<a href="post.jsp?forum=17" title="Click to start watching this topic">Post New
Topic</a>

When hovering over it, clicking it, or using "copy link location", this is the
fully-qualified URL it uses: 

http://forums.oracle.com:3302/forums/post.jsp?forum=17

I have no idea where the 3302 is coming from!

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Mozilla 1.7b.
2. Go to:
http://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jsp?forum=17&thread=235761&tstart=0&trange=15


Actual Results:  
Images don't load, links don't work

Expected Results:  
Images load, links work

there definitely needs to be a tech evangelism bug with Oracle so that the pref
doesn't get huge for every version number there is with Oracle Server.
Any idea which versions come with this Content-Location active by default (not
to mention it's a minor security issue:
http://www.securityspace.com/s_survey/data/man.200403/firewalled_cloc.html ) ?
This is evang.

Brian, can you take care of filing internal bugs on oracle's servers to get this
content-location bug fixed?
You just marked this dup of a bug with a patch that explicitly does NOT fix this
case.  If you're trying to make sure we never fix it, I guess that's the way to
go....  Adding to tracking on the bug where I'm trying to track this stufff. 
Please don't mark bugs on this issue duplicate unless the exact same server
header is present.
