build id: 1999051408 platform: windows nt to reproduce: load a page with a link on it that goes to a bad url. as of 2.10 pm today, you could go to aol.com and have any number of links not work because dynamic.aol.com was down, for example. on that page, click a link that won't work. result: the link does not load, and yet the location control is updated to reflect the url that you attempted to load. expected result: the location control is not updated and still shows you the page you're viewing.
The location bar is an XPApp control, reassigning to don

Radha, is this our bug or a netlib problem?
Status: NEW → ASSIGNED
It is mine.
Move this to M8 ...
I can't reproduce this in today's build. Please verify. I used this little sample file to test this. <html> <head> <title> My Home Page </title> </head> <p> <a href="test.html">Click here to go nowhere</a> </body> </html>

it looks good to me on 1999-06-16-08 RedHat Linux 5.2 kernel 2.2.7 1999-06-16-08 WinNT 4.0 sp4 1999-06-16-08 MacOS 8.51 now the behavior is as follows: if a url is invalid, the url bar is updated for that url and the server will give you a 404 or some other Not Found error. that is on par with 4.x. i'm marking fixed and verified. (reopen if you think the behavior should be different)
phillip, that test case (http://wetnap/seamonkey/bugs/bug6586.html) could be updated to contain links to servers that don't exist (steal the page at http://schist/bug6586.html if you'd like). anyhoo, using the june 16 build under nt, it now works just great for me. (if a link to a server that doesn't exist or doesn't load is followed, the url is not updated.)
