Description

11 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.8.1.9) Gecko/20071025 Firefox/2.0.0.9
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.8.1.9) Gecko/20071025 Firefox/2.0.0.9

If the Reason-Phrase in the status line is more than ~10626 characters, Firefox returns a 'blank page'. It's not actually a blank page, but rather it just displays whatever was displaying before.

Note that this is if the Status-Code is 500. I don't know if it's true for any other status codes.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Send a HTTP Response with a status line of: "HTTP/1.1 500 ' << msg << "\r\n";
where msg is a string with > than ~10626 characters.

Actual Results:  
Firefox returns nothing. It's as if it received nothing, if it's a new tab, the reload button is inactive and the screen is blank. If it's a old tab, then the previous content remains on display.

Expected Results:  
Correctly displayed whatever information was in the Response.
