Description

When I browse to file://dirname/, the dirname directory it displayed as it
should be. However, file:/// (the root directory on Linux) does not display at
all- files or directories. This is not a read permission issue, since basically
everything in root is world-readable. Latest nightly build (2000040409) but also
present for at least the past several days.
Changing component to Networking.  Please don't file bugs on 'other' component.
Component: other → Networking
... and reassigning (oops).

Odd. In an earlier, FIXED bug, bug 6936, "NECKO: Can not view directories using
file:// URLs", the root directory was the only one that could be viewed.

Tested with 2000-04-03-15 and 2000-04-05-08 on customized Slackware 4.0 using 
fmvw2, displaying the root directory works fine.

Tested with NS 6.0b1 and also got the same problem on three fully up-to-date
Debian Woody installs, kernel 2.2.14. However I just got a friend to test on
RedHat 6.2, and it works for him. Must be debian specific. I'll leave it up to
someone else to close it or not.
liv@duke.edu - are you still seeing this problem with recent builds of Mozilla? 
We don't want to close it if you can, even if it is Debian-specific.

'file:///' displays fine for me, using today's Debian woody and the May 18

Mozilla Linux Build. Either it's not Debian specific, or it has been fixed.

Resolving WORKSFORME. Cheers, Neil :-)
