If you repost form data from a server. The HTTP_REFERER header is not reposted aswell. The repost of the HTTP_REFERER works on NS4- and IE5- This URL has an example of what is expected: http://www.netprogs.com/cgi-bin/repost.pl
Radha, is this our bug or should it go to the form submission folks or maybe someone else?
claudius, if this ends up going to Form Submission, reassign as needed...
Seeing this on Mac OS 9.0.4 as well. Build 2000100208-M18.
Confirming based on two sightings. -> Form Submission, initially. Gerv
This is not just a form problem. Any reload of the page fails to send the http_referer information of that page. This causes problems for applications that restrict access based on the referer information.
Yup, this is causing us some nasty problems with our application security
i checked the testcase and everything worked fine... ...i think this is fixed in build id 2001032408 on windows isn't it? other platforms?
FreeBSD 4.1 20010323xx I tried this and a reload does NOT pass the referrer; in fact, it doesn't repost the data at all - it displays the form again. NOTE (this may be relevant): I'm using memory cache only; disk cache is totally disabled. Mozilla still has lots of problems with form data, results of posts, etc.
Randell, did you use the trunk or the latest 0.8.1 build? the trunk reposts the data... the 0.8.1 doesn't and you see the form again (on 0.8.1 builds) would be interested in knowing if the trunk build on bsd is misbehaving too.
Trunk: >FreeBSD 4.1 20010323xx Pulled on Friday I believe.
I checked in a fix for this on friday. Can someone try it out? Thanks,
Rechecked with fresh pull today (3/26). Seems to work fine now. I recommend closing as fixed.
This was fixed last friday
VERIFIED Fixed with 2001032708 builds.
