Description

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.72 (Macintosh; I; PPC)
BuildID:    2000041608

the Back button doesn't seem to be working for FTP.  Under M16, the back button 
is enabled, yet hitting it forces the computer to spend a few seconds looking up 
the site.  When it refreshes, though, the same directory we were just in 
reappears.


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on bookmarks, sample ftp URLs, ftp:netscape.
2. Click on the directories...pub, netscape6...
3. Hit the back button.

Actual Results:  Note: m15 (Mac 8.6, 2000041704) doesn't even enable the 'back' 
button.  Instead, it's just greyed out.

I don't know if this is a refreshing problem, or the event handling.  I'll let 
somebody else decide.

Putting on [nsbeta2+] radar for beta2 fix. 
Whiteboard: [nsbeta2+]
Part of the problem described here has been fixed. Any click on bookmarks used 
to just replace the existing url in the content area instead of doing a 
legitimate load. This made urls loaded thro' bookmarks not get logged in to SH. 
That is why, the back button was grey. This was fixed 2 weeks ago. So, if you do 
exactly the steps described above, the back button won't be greyed out. 

But, I noticed another problem.  After you have gone to a ftp site, ftp://<some 
site> and then  click in a directory say pub, the loading of the pub directory 
again replaces the url in the content area, making ftp://<some site> vanish from 
the SH. If you click "Back" button now, you will land up in the page you were 
before going to ftp://<some site>. 

There are  bugs already filed for the second problem. So, I'm going to close 
this  one and cc skoonce@usc.edu in the other bug, so he can track it.

VERIFIED with the 2000053108 builds. It'd be nice is someone referenced the other bug though.
