From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.7 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.14 i686) BuildID: 2000041811 When using Mozilla to read news, one persons posts were unreadable. The nntp-server responded "430 No Such Article\r\n" even though the article is on the server. Netscape 4.7 could read it so I used ethereal to find out what Mozilla was trying to fetch. Netscape 4.7 fetches articles by the article number but Mozilla fetches them by the Message-ID header in the post. When using Netscape to fetch one of the persons post the Message-ID of it was: <1ead2vv.m0dewzx1mdbNemail@example.com> When Mozilla tries to fecth the same article it tries to fetch the article with the Message-ID: <1ead2vv.m0bdewzx1mdbN\firstname.lastname@example.org> Notice how the "%d9" has changed to the octal character \331 (Hex 0xd9). So Mozilla tries to get the wrong article, hence the NNTP-error The Message-Id is correctly stored in the .msf for the group. It is just this guys posts, and all his posts, that can't be read. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Log on to news.dd.chalmers.se (only people from Chalmers University can do this) 2. Open the group cth.dtek.general . 3. Try to open a post from Dan Karlsson email@example.com Actual Results: Mozilla responds: "NNTP error No Such Article" Expected Results: Mozilla should show the article.
crap. this has happened a couple of times in the past. I wonder if the url parsing code has changed again? I'll investigate.
adding andreas to the cc list, this might be url parsing related.
Url parsing code has not changed recently, however some charset encoding before urlparsing has changed. Move to UTF8, using unicode, ... I would start the search there.

thanks for the info, andreas. I'll debug and see what's going on. adding regression to the keyword, since message id's like that used to work. firstname.lastname@example.org, which version of mozilla are you using?
I'm using Mozilla M15 BuildID 2000041811 (the one from mozilla.org) with PSM 1.1.
this is fixed in m16. please test with m16 and let me know if you still have a problem. (FYI: official m16 builds have not been made yet.) *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 35739 ***

I've tried the latest M16 build and now it fetches post by the article number instead of the Message-ID so the problem is gone. Hope the translation of "%d9" to 0xd9 hex doesn't cause trouble elsewere.
try this, in a recent build: open a browser window type in that article url (news://host/message-id) in the location bar. does it display the article in the browser window?
Nope! I checked with build 2000052420 and it still tries to fetch the wrong article according to ethereal. The %d9 gets translated to the hex 0xd9. If you change the % to %25 (ascii '%') it tries to get the correct article. But what is the syntax for selecting the correct group?
