Need more info. Is this only happening on the test URL?

its a pretty simple test case. I think my.netscape.com uses the same type of refresh scheme. If you went to your my.netscape.com custom page (or maybe even the default page) and you never saw any new content changes from the first page that you viewed then you might be observing the same problem.
Could we get a retest on this?
Claudius, could you test this.
with the browser buster page: pretty much just as chofmann reported. With the 2000060208 Build on Win98 the main frame never changes on meta-refresh. If you reload however you get the correct page in the sequence - only to return to the old one upon refresh. with a my.netsape.com custom page: Inconclusive. This page only updates every 5min., ..., 20 minutes later it seemed to be behaving correctly. On the one hand, the main frame seemed to update when the top frame refreshed. I sent myself webmail inbetween refreshes to see this. On the other hand, I do note that my news headlines were timestamped and 3+ hours old and never changed while I tested this. Netcenter claims these headlines are updated hourly yet mine were stamped 2:58pm while the top frame quoted the time as 6:17pm.
putting on beta2 plus radar

I can't repro this on NT. Is this a Win95/98 problem only?

Hmmm, I've checked with the 2000060613 builds on WinNT and Win98 and this seems to work just fine now.(Before, I repro'd it w/Win98)
