User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Hi, I recently noticed that Mozilla, upon encountering an iframe where the src URL uses an unknown protocol, pops up a window alerting the user that "... is not a registered protocol". Considering that the user did not type in the URL themselves, I think this shouldn't be done - it's both annoying and confusing. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to example URL mentioned above, which has " ttp" instead of "http" as the protocol for the embedded iframe Actual Results: Mozilla pops up an alert notifying the user that "ttp is not a registered protocol". Expected Results: Mozilla should silently ignore the error; another alternative would be to display a "broken iframe" icon, similar to the one used for broken images, in order to point out the error in an unobtrusive way.
This would be fixed with error pages being turned on.

This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01". This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.
