Currently, if the user attempts to go to a nonexistent about: URL (like about:nothing), he/she is greeted with an intrusive error dialog. I suspect that the same happens if a FRAME, OBJECT or IFRAME attempts to load such a page. This is definitely unacceptable. We need error dialogs, like the rest of the error pages.
Oops, bug misfired! See Bug 382702 instead, that is the correct one.
