Description

12 years ago
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 I try to login to my sitecom wireless router(11 Mbps - 4p Switch 10/100 Mbps - Printer Server) the router crashes. When I login with Internet Explorer it doesn't happen and I can administrate the router.
When examining send TCP packets the problem seems to be that firefox sends the pasword in a separate package. IE does send it directly in the first package.
The router immediatly crashes when it sees no password in the first package I think. (stupid unwanted security!)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to your sitecom admin pagefor example: http://192.168.123.254/
2.Fill in your password and click login

Actual Results:  
Router crashes and needs a reset.

Expected Results:  
Getting loged in the router

I included TCP packages sent by IE and by Mozilla Firefox.

This is not the first report of problems caused by this behavior in FF.  Though there is nothing we can do to prevent chunking in TCP, we can encourage the TCP stack to put everything in a single packet by adding some buffering to FF.

I think this may actually be a duplicate bug report.
