On many ocassions I have to open a website first in IE before I can get it to open in FireFox. On all ocassions it has been for a site I have never visited before. FireFox will first tell me the website is not accessible. Then, after IE opens the site, I can then open the website in FireFox. You need to fix this, because, as a businessman, I cannot be wasting a lot of valuable time going to FireFox, then IE and then back to FireFox during my online research activities, which are a critical and time-consuming part of our business.
Can you be troubled to give some examples, since this obviously works for the 11 million other people who use it....
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8a6) Gecko/20041217 Firefox/1.0+ From the reporter's POV it is hard to reproduce - once the site is open, it is no longer closed to Firefox. Can you see the problem the problem with any other standards compliant browser? Can you see it on any other platform? Do you have saved headers and/or network traces? I am quite happy to agree that an inability to open sites for the first time is an important problem. The first step is to identify whether the problem is due to a defect in Firefox and if not, it doesn't belong in Bugzilla.
