Closed Bug 245432 Opened 17 years ago Closed 17 years ago
Initial homepage with fresh install (installer build, new profile) is empty, not blank, empty
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040602 Firefox/0.8.0+ Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040602 Firefox/0.8.0+ When installing Firefox with an installer build, after it loads for the first time (with a new profile), the homepage it defaults to is empty. I don't mean it's "blank" as in "about:blank"... the fields is completely empty. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Install Firefox from an installer build with a new profile 2.Launch Firefox 3. Actual Results: The default homepage is completely empty. Expected Results: It should default to the Firefox page on Mozilla.org, or at the very least "about:blank"
Confirm problem .... The installer build has browser.startup.homepage = chrome://browser-region/locale/region.properties browser.startup.page = 1 The zip build has the homepage set to the products page URL. The installer build is presently causing the sessionsaver extension to create an exception because of the homepage address on first load.
Possibly related: bug 245271, where browser.throbber.url is being found pointing to the same chrome: URL in installer builds.
confirming this behaviour on... Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040601 Firefox/0.8.0+ (installer) ... with a clean install of course
confirming this behaviour on another installer build: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040602 Firefox/0.8.0+
I also see this using a build from June 2, 2004. Blocking 0.9?

Sorry that was incorrect. Bug 245433 indeed fixed this problem. The bustage that bug caused was backed out, but the fix remains.
