Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050322 Firefox/1.0+
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050322 Firefox/1.0+

When attempting to connect to a secure server using a domain name that does not
match the one present on the certificate, a "Security Error: Domain Name
Mismatch" message appears. Pressing Cancel stops loading the page, but leaves
the location-bar with the requested URI.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load up the URL (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org./ in IP form) in a new tab.
2. Choose Cancel in the dialogue.
Actual Results:  
Location-bar text contains entered URL.

Expected Results:  
Reset location-bar text back to previous location-bar text.

Bug observed with https://www.sourceforge.org./ and also
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org./ (Note the fully-qualified domain name indicated
by the trailing .)

I see this again (or maybe I was imagining it fixed?)

This is no longer an issue since security alerts turned into security error pages.
