Closed Bug 303459 Opened 15 years ago Closed 15 years ago
when following a link to a page with a URL differing only in case of letters, pressing the back button acts as if pressing it twice
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6 (ax) Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6 (ax) In the page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welfare_State (note the upper case S) there is a link to the page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welfare_state (note the lower case s). Pressing this link and then pressing the back button leads to the page visited before http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welfare_State. In the case of a newly opened tab/window the back button remains gray. Curiously, this is also the behavior in the newest version of Internet Explorer. If this behavior is as expected then please delete this bug as soon as possible. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welfare_State 2. Press the link that leads to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welfare_state 3. Press the back button (alternatively, note that it is still grayed out) Actual Results: Page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welfare_State is skipped in the browser history, with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welfare_state in its place. Expected Results: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welfare_State should remain in the browser history regardless of the next page visited.
Fixed on the trunk, will be in 1.5 *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 99091 ***
