If an invalid about: url is entered in the location bar, nothing happens at all (except for that url getting displayed in the location bar).

Reproducible: Always

1.enter an invalid about: url (like about:sdfsdfsd) in the location bar

Actual Results:  
previously existing page stays on the screen

Expected Results:  
either and error page or an error message should be displayed

can be a potential security hole with about: URL handling
