Wired stock charts do not display in M13
At wired news' stock charting page, the image containg the chart does not display. Instead the text "dllchart' appears. I'm using mozilla M13 on WinNT 4.0(sp5). To reproduce, simply go to the above URL and enter a ticker symbol, (eg SUNW) then press GO. The page works fine in Netscape 4.72 and IE5.0
WORKSFORME in M13 W95 (modulo loads of other page layout problems) and 2000022608 W95. We need an NT person to check this out... Gerv
seeing this on m15 nightlies on win32 and linux moving to imagelib, not sure if it is the right component though... the image link is: http://chart.neural.com/scripts/chart/dllchart.dll?MfcISAPICommand=Chart&Sym1=SUNW&width=432&height=250&dRes=DAY&dCnt=12&dPeriod=MONTHS&PlotType=LINE&ind7=volume&csym1=000000&cSym2=FF0000&csym3=CC9966&csym4=99CC33&csym5=9999CC&cbckg=FFFFCC&cbcku=FFFFFF&cbckd=CCCCFF&cbckl=FFFFFF&ctxtu=000000&ctxtd=000000&ctxtl=000000&cind1a=red&cind2=blk&cind3=red&cind3a=lblu&cind4=7200AA&cind5=AA681A&cind6=mag&cavg1=0066FF&cavg2=FF00FF&Source=SP&Ignore=1220001147

Ever confirmed: true
I'll dig into it. -P
This is now working in every build I can lay my hands on, including the current one (20000428). Could it have been their problem? Can email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org and/or email@example.com try this both in new and old builds, and say what they see? Gerv
Eli: If this works for you, would you close the bug? We don't have time to play with dead snakes...just make sure its really dead. thnx, p
Hmm...using today's build on NT, Linux & Mac and "MSFT" as the ticker symbol, I see no chart.
...specifically, I see an empty image frame, which is sometimes (on Linux) replaced immediately by alt text (dllchart). Clicking on the image and choosing 'View Image' from the context menu doesn't show any image, either.
Putting on [nsbeta2+][6/01] radar. This work must be done by 06/01 or we may pull this for PR2.
Gagan: I'm not sure who should own this. Once the image is generated, the imglib can display it. If I get the chart image from 4.x and save it, mozilla displays it fine. Looking at the data stream with traceplus, it looks like the cgi is submitted with a GET, but nothing is ever returned. Is there something funny with how we make the request? Or what data stream we accept? Reassigning to you in the hopes you will know where the bug should go. -P

Yup. We've a serious problem it seems in nsSocketTransport. It entirely depends on the way the data is coming from the web server. It seems like we've a raise condition where we will stop reading after the pipe is full and not go back to PR_Read when the consumer read the data. I'm looking into it. It may explain some other partial loads and it may sometimes work or not work depending on the timing. UPgrading severity to critical.
Severity: normal → critical

Ok. Everything is simpler then that. That particular site sends a bogus Content-Length header without a semicolon and we choke up on it. IE and NS4.x seem to tolerate this. I change the header parser to take care of this and will check this in when the tree opens up.

This bug is verified fixed. Using today's builds, the chart displays correctly on Windows, Macintosh, and Linux.
