Firefox seems to be searching even if the URL contains "HTTP://", which it should not do. (http://offline_network_computer) I am reporting this as major since it is interfering enougf for me to have to resort to IE to connect to network computers. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to URL http://offline_network_computer Actual Results: Google search was run Expected Results: Should have reported a timout trying to connect to http://offline_network_computer. Running Firefox 1.0
WFM (I get an timeout) / Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; es-ES; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041108 Firefox/1.0 without extensions.
These are the test computers that do a search: Firefox 1.0(not PR), Windows XP SP2, Extensions: DOM Inspector Pentium III 500Mhz, 256MB RAM Connected to router via Ethernet LAN Firefox 1.0(not PR), Windows XP SP2, Extensions: Many Athlon 64-bit 2.8 Ghz, 2GB RAM Connected to router via Wireless LAN The tested URLs: http://main - a computer that exists, when it is running it connects to it, if not running it searches for "main" http://offline_network_computer - a computer that never existed, runs a search for "offline_network_computer"
In Linux also it searches google (Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10).
Dupe of bug 263213?
we aren't very good at predicting the future, you're welcome to buy some tea leaves and give it a try. (alternatively, perhaps more productively, you could try downloading the source, setting up a build environment, building, and then working on the relevant portion of the mozilla codebase.) *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 263213 ***
