Description

18 years ago
The default bookmarks that are in the "Personal Toolbar Folder" are almost 
correct, but I have the following corrections since they are not valid URL's.
"http://www.mozilla.org" should be "http://www.mozilla.org/"
"http://bugzilla.mozilla.org" should be "http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/"

Both are missing the trailing "/"

lets make sure we check for trailing /'s when the new bookmarks are done.
Depends on: 20862

Comment 2

This bug is invalid. "http://www.mozilla.org" means *exactly* the same thing as
"http://www.mozilla.org/". The trailing slash is not significant when it follows
the hostname. It is only significant when there is some substance to the path
part of the URL.

According to rfc1738 section 3.1 "http://www.mozilla.org" should be 
"http://www.mozilla.org/"

I can't find text supporting your assertion in 3.1. 3.3 makes this clear,
though: "If neither <path> nor <searchpart> is present, the "/" may also be
omitted."

Just one thing: So when you type http://gemal.dk in the location field and 
Mozilla appends a / making it http://gemal.dk/ that's a bug?

Comment 6

While technically they may be valid (I will read the specs tonight), it might 
perhaps be better to list them with the trailing slash as they are shown in the 
location bar.

Comment 7

Henrik: "http://gemal.dk" and "http://gemal.dk/" mean exactly the same thing, so
if the location bar decides to change one form to the other, I don't see why
that would be a bug.

Jeremy: Why would it be better? The specs say they are the same. Identical. One
or the other, doesn't matter. So why is this worth devoting time to?

According to the RFC, the trailing / is optional where there is no host path.
INVALID. Although, I still maintain it looks more nifty with the trailing /.

"Although, I still maintain it looks more nifty with the trailing /."

Enough to reopen th bug...:)
I agree 100% and really would like the URL's to change.

Henrik: I am doing the new bookmarks file, going on in bug 20862. I'll make sure
they all have the trailing /. If I miss one, you can bug me about it =).
