Firefox 2 (and all other browsers I've used) omit the parameters in the default POST action. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Go to a page with GET params containing a form without an explicit action. 2.POST that form. Actual Results: The GET params are included in the URL posted to. Expected Results: The GET params should not be included, to match FF2 (and all other browsers). I'm going to whip up a test case and put the URL here in a few minutes.
Including the GET parameters of the current page is correct if the URL is absent or completely empty, AFAIK. See RFC 1808 section 4.1, step 2 a). And Firefox 2 should behave the same way, if I remember correctly.
I forgot to include the link: http://rfc.net/rfc1808.html#s4.
My mistake. I should have waited to build a test page. This behavior isn't actually new.
