The problem: if you mistype a URL and you get an error page, you do not have a chance to correct your typo--you must retype the whole thing. The example I've provided is simple, and you can recover what was typed. Before I found the SFURL extension, I had plenty of mistakes where I could not as a practical matter recover what I typed. Show Failed URL has worked for a long time. It really ought to be part of the browser. Can you imagine an IE user making a mistake and getting gibberish? She'd be highly annoyed. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. write www..com in URL bar 2. press <Enter> Actual Results: chrome://global/content/netError.xhtml?e=dnsNotFound&u=http%3A//www..com/%3Blkfkj.com/&d=www..com%20could%20not%20be%20found.%20Please%20check%20the%20name%20and%20try%20again. Expected Results: http://www..com/
That may or may not be the best solution according to bug 157004 comment 39. This bug is I think in essence a dup of bug 157004 (since this bug basically is a re-request to fix 157004).
True. Ed,take alook at http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=157004#c39.
Thank you for bringing bug #157004 to my attention. I couldn't find it when I searched. So, this is a re-request, so mark it a dup. The fact remains, though, that it needs fixing.
