User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; nl; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; nl; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5

When a url including a portnumber (eg http://foo.bar.com:12345/xyz) times out and the retry button is pressed, the portnumber is removed from the address (becoming thus http://foo.bar.com/xyz).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to url with portnumber that times out.
2. click retry after timeout
3.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20051230 Firefox/1.6a1 ID:2005123023

WFM. 
Pasted this in the address bar: http://www.nu.nl:1234/
Received an "Unable to connect" message.
Opened my firewall and clicked "Try again" and I saw that Firefox tried to establish a connection on port 1234.
If this is something different than you meant can you please provide an URL?

I am using a private URL incl a portnumber. Anyway what I see is that the port number is not diplayed in the address bar anymore. It may be a pure cosmetic thing afterall...
Weird for I really see the portnumber in the locationbar.
Have you tried it in Firefox's safemode or with a new profile?
