URL with backslash instead of antislash fails
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; fr-FR; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050717 Firefox/1.0.6 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; fr-FR; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050717 Firefox/1.0.6 Hello, I write you because I think Mozilla should resolve URL with backslash instead of antislash. For example in the page http://formation.paysdelaloire.iufm.fr/ressources/plp/maths_sciences/LE%20CHAMP%20MAGNETIQUE.htm The webmaster had the bad idea of using MS Word for creating a web page. Word is know to badly export as HTML URL contains antislash (\) and slash(/) instead of just slash(/) for example http://formation.paysdelaloire.iufm.fr/ressources/plp/maths_sciences/animation_explorer\theoreme_ampere.htm instead of http://formation.paysdelaloire.iufm.fr/ressources/plp/maths_sciences/animation_explorer/theoreme_ampere.htm I know that that's a very bad thing but many personal site are made like this so Mozilla browser should accept such an URL (a good idea should be to show a picture at bottom right of the FireFox windows showing that the page is not valid because of the antislash error) but the page should appear... Reagards Reproducible: Always
Sorry, a backslash in an URL is invalid. Internet Exploder handles this incorrectly. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 64488 ***
