If one writes on a html document with a timeout, like below

<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
function rewrite() {
    document.write("<html><body><h1>rewritten</h1></body></html>");
    document.close();
    }
</script>
</head>
<body onload="setTimeout(rewrite,3000)">
<h1>waiting...</h1>
</body>
</html>

the page will be bookmarked with the following prefix in its url:

wyciwyg://0/

The timeout can be 0, and the setTimeout can also be placed within the body tags
  with the same results.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the html example above in your browser
2. Choose file bookmark and look at the location field of the popup
3.

Actual Results:  
wyci less than wyg 

Expected Results:  
wyci precisely wyg

Perhaps (or perhaps not) you wonder why anyone would want to write such evil
code.    I've used it for a document loaded from a chrome url that calls a
script (with a timeout thus) which processes the bookmarks datasource. On
windows (not on linux), without the timeout, and only on startup, sometimes,
some bookmarks related function would return null, preventing the creation of
the page. Since this only happened on startup, I figured that a small pause
might give mozilla the time to finish its presumably unfinished initialization.
If you have a better idea, please let me know.
Summary: wyciwyc added to bookmarked url → wyciwyc added to bookmarked url
I thought I had found a work around for this bug with putting 	  

window.QueryInterface( Components.interfaces.nsIInterfaceRequestor )
.getInterface( Components.interfaces.nsIWebNavigation )
.currentURI.spec = document.location.href; 

after the document.close() (in a document loaded from a chrome url that is).
However, when another page is loaded and then the back button clicked, mozilla
crashes. 

The setTimeout seems indeed to do what I wanted it to do (make sure the page
gets properly created), so I wouldn't like to just take it out.

However, the page I'm creating is supposed to be a startup page 
( bookmarkshome.mozdev.org ) and bookmarking it and backnavigating to it are
therefore things that should definitely work. So, if you're reading this and you
know a better work around or a good alternative for the setTimeout, please let
me know!!

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

I'd guess bookmarks should use createExposableURI here...

Looks like addBookmarkForTabBrowser and addBookmarkForBrowser need fixing.

(this is Sanskrit to me.) Is this bug still valid?
Yes, it's easy to verify - load the attachment, wait three seconds (the text will change from "waiting" to "rewritten") then open the file bookmark dialog.

... and the URL line shows as "wyciwyg://0/https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=197606" (without the quotes). Hm, looks weird.

Out of interest, does Firefox have this bug? If not and we can find out where they fixed it, we may be able to turn this into a mentored porting bug.
Same problem present in today Firefox nightly
