I've recently had a very serious problem in one of the applications I'm developing -- when I finally tracked it down it was in the way Mozilla (1.5) was processing my (badly written) html code. I had the following line in my header: <link rel="shortcut icon" href=""> this line caused php scripts to be loaded twice and cause me quite a headache. IE processes this fine. I think a browser as good as mozilla can do the same. Thanks for your attention, Rotem Tamir Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. <link rel="shortcut icon" href=""> in the <head> tag 2. 3. Actual Results: sends duplicate requests to the php scripts (including all the variables in the form) Expected Results: form on the php script is sent twice to the script and double INSERTs occur in the SQL DB. ignore the src="" instead of requesting the same page again.
As you say, you have written bad html. You are telling the browser that the page has a shortcut icon at url "" which is taken to be the same url as the current page, so the browser attempts to load the shortcut icon from there. This is what the browser should be doing.
well, i've seen this happen to a few developers around the web.. IE processes this fine. I think mozilla should as well. Rotem
