Description

14 years ago
Mozilla 1.7RC
STEPS:
Use linux net installer

Configure proxy for any of the standard error scenarios (hostname not found,
hostname found but port incorrect).

Incorrect hostname -> "Fatal error [-615], Download failed"
Connection refused (wrong port) -> blinks a quick error message.

At this time I was not able to test for no system responds (connection
establishment timeout), but I'm pretty sure it will fail as well.

These are the three basic error conditions you should always handle correctly.

the apparent exit is bug 236294, fixed on trunk

nsXIEngine::Download() has horrible error handling.  Any persistent network
error is considered a fatal CRC error.
