(Whiteboard: [nsbeta2+] ETA 7/21, URL)

Go to www.ebay.com and click either the my eBay or the sign in links at the top
right of the page. in the July 3rd build I receive an unknown content type
dialog. When I choose to save the file to disk it turns out that the server side
application file (ebayISAPI.dll) is what is saved. This procedure works in
Netscape 4.5 and in IE5.

When I tried it with M16 I was able to get to the sign in screen, but when I
tried to submit the form I was prompted to download the dll ;)

This is a dogfood bug for me because I am unable to see whether or not I'm
winning or losing in my various Disney comic purchasing ventures!

'Networking' is just a stab in the dark, apologies if I'm incorrect.

adding nsbeta2 keyword as this prevents mac users from using ebay.

I tried playing around with this today on windows and it seemed to work okay. 
I'm hoping this isn't a mac specific bug. I'm still investigating.

No ETA for this bug yet. I'm having a horrible time just trying to get the Mac
to start up. Unable to get to a point where I can try this out yet. Once I'm
there I'll put down an ETA. 
adding myself to cc list.

I can't try this on windows due to the fact that I can't get
an account on ebay.

oh goody! I finally get to send gagan a bug his way! I've debugged this quite a
bit this evening and the problem seems to be down in http.


I click on the button to do an http post with the following url:
http://cgi4.ebay.com/aw-cgi/ebayISAPI.dll (If you go to create a My ebay account
you'll eventually reach this point when you go to confirm your account).

On Windows, I watch the url go into the uriloader, we call AsyncRead on the http
channel and some time later, we get an OnStartRequest with the data coming back
to the client from the post. Everything works great.

On the Mac, I watch the url go into the uriloader, we call AsyncRead on the http
channel and we never come back with an OnStartRequest from necko. You get an
error message saying we were unabled to load the url.

http is failing during the post for this example on the Mac.

By the way, I no longer see Bug 45438 which chofmann just filed. I'm able to
create accounts just fine now on Windows. But the Mac always stalls at this one
particular part. I don't see an unknown content dialog either. We just fail to
load the post url.
