User-Agent: [Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O) Gecko/20040906 Camino/0.8+] Build Identifier: [Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O) Gecko/20040906 Camino/0.8+] This occurs on sites that have ads of the google ads type. From the site I linked, try clicking on a permalink, you'll get taken to that page, the URL of that page will be briefly displayed in the location bar, after which, it will be replaced by a different URL starting with "ads.splinder.com". Everything goes back to normal if you click on a different open tab, then go back to that tab - the correct URL will be displayed. The exact same thing happens with all sites hosted on blogspot, and also with any other site hosted on its own domain, as long as they're using that kind of "dynamic" ads. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Visit URL given above as demonstration. 2. Click on one of the "permalink" links below each entry. You will be taken to the page with that entry. Actual Results: When that page loads, the URL in the location bar will quickly change from the URL of that page, to an URL from the dynamic ads used in the page. The page can be still bookmarked with the correct URL (even when dragging the URL to the toolbar, the bookmarked URL will be the correct site and page URL, not the ads URL being displayed). But the URL displayed will be the ads URL, not the site URL, so aside from being confusing, it makes it impossible to copy it and paste it in an email message or text document. The only "workaround" is to click on another tab, or open a new tab if you don't have any other tabs open already, then go back to that tab with the page containing dynamic ads. The location bar will now display the URL correctly and you will be able to copy it correctly. Expected Results: The URL displayed in the location field should always be that site and that page URL, not the URL from any dynamic ads or other elements in the page.
this is a dupe.
(In reply to comment #1) > this is a dupe. I hadn't found anything in the archive because I was searching "url field" - then I realised I should check "location bar" and just came across this: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=285648 "When a page has a subframe, Camino will display the subframe's URL in the location bar instead of the main page's. NYTimes.com is a good example. Instead of http://www.nytimes.com, the location bar shows http://ad.doubleclick.net/adi/N3016.nytimes.comSD6440/B1495671.6;sz=88x60;ord=2005.03.10.22.06.34?" That is exactly what I meant (I had noticed that only with ads, probably because they use < iframe >). Sorry for the duplicate!

Is this really a dupe? It's using Camino 0.8 and not a nightly.
Not a dup, since this was reported with 0.8

though i guess the "2004" should have given it away. oh well.
This did have the same cause as bug 285648.
