Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1a2) Gecko/20060512 BonEcho/2.0a2
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1a2) Gecko/20060512 BonEcho/2.0a2

When checking the CSS of one of my documents at the W3 CSS validator through the cut-and-paste box, I noticed that the URL disappears on the results page, perhaps because it is too long.  The URL text is still there, though: it can be selected and cut/copied, but it is unreadable.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://jigsaw.w3.org.
2. Copy the CSS from http://www.mozilla.org/css/base/content.css into the "Validate by Direct Input" box.
3. Click "Check."

Actual Results:  
The results page loads correctly, but the location bar appears blank.

Expected Results:  
The location bar should display the URL, no matter its length.

Perhaps 2.0 Branch only?

I can get the location bar to go blank in Firefox 1.5.0.6, just following the steps to reproduce, and nothing more.

However, I can only get the location bar to go blank in "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20060829 Minefield/3.0a1" (trunk) IF I follow the steps to reproduce, THEN click on the location bar.  

But I can no longer get this to reproduce at all in "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1b2) Gecko/20060829 BonEcho/2.0b2" (2.0 branch).
