Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915 Firefox/1.0.7
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915 Firefox/1.0.7

Save the following two files on your system and load the test.html file in Firefox.

=== File: test.html ====
<html>
	<head>
		<title>Test</title>
		<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
	</head>
	
	<frameset rows="125,*">
		<frame src="top.html">
		<frame
src="http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/west_yorkshire/4284522.stm">
	</frameset>
</html>
=== End of File ===

=== File: top.html ===
<html>
	<body>
		<p>Top</p>
	</body>
</html>
=== End of File ===


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Save the two files given above.
2. Load test.html in Firefox


Actual Results:  
Firefox displays only the top frame's content.  The bottom frame is empty.

Expected Results:  
The bottom frame should have displayed the contents of
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/west_yorkshire/4284522.stm.  This URL
works fine if loaded directly in the address bar.

If you copy the source of
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/west_yorkshire/4284522.stm to a local
file and update the bottom frame to point to that file, it works fine.

Don't know if this is relavent or not, but the page for the bottom page uses
XHTML loose flavor.  I.e., <!doctype html public "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0
Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">

Perhaps Firefox would handle the frames if the bottom's source used the
frame-set flavor.

I can confirm this bug using Firefox 1.5 Latest RC. A real website that has this bug would be https://www2.peoplefirstcu.org/. When logging into their PC access they use multiple frames to display the content.
This bug was reported on Firefox 2.x or older, which is no longer supported and will not be receiving any more updates. I strongly suggest that you update to Firefox 3.6.3 or later, update your plugins (flash, adobe, etc.), and retest in a new profile. If you still see the issue with the updated Firefox, please post here. Otherwise, please close as RESOLVED > WORKSFORME
