From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.6 [en-gb]C-CCK-MCD NetscapeOnline.co.uk (Win98; I) BuildID: 2001010901 & 2001012020 Clicking on a link <a href="links"> or <a href="links/"> where 'links' doesn't exist, can cause the browser to freeze/not respond. A 'Reload' after clicking on the link will almost always cause it to freeze. However, sometimes the browser will crash, as in here in M0.7 (though I haven't been able to isolate the exact circumstances to reproduce it): MOZILLA caused an invalid page fault in module XPCOM.DLL at 016f:60cd4f29.

Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: The attachment contains the link <a href="links"> Try clicking the link. If that doesn't freeze the browser, try a 'Reload' (or two) as well.
OK, just discovered it doesn't work online. Attachment needs to be downloaded and tried offline.
Could this be related in any way to bug 18007?
Build ID: 2001012205 OS: Win NT 4 Platform: PC Mozilla seems to load a nonexisting local file rather than give an error message when clicking the link in the attachment after downloading it. When I click reload it freezes.
no freeze here on NT mozilla build 012304
reporter: could you get a talkback build and submit a report? with that stack trace, we can find out if this is perhaps a dupe or a new bug. btw, i was not able to crash 20001012304 win98
Confirmed on 2001012404 (Win 98) using the first attachment (23283) after saving locally. After clicking the link in that attachment Mozilla froze. Reassigning to Networking: File, confirming, and adding "hang" keyword.
Component: Browser-General → Networking: File
forgot to confirm and reassign.

*** Bug 66414 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I did a little more testing on this bug and have some new information to report: clicking on the "non-existent" link will either do nothing, freeze mozilla, or crash mozilla. Distribution of these events is random and does not appear to follow any patterns. I attempted to run a talkback build, however, I was unable to get the QFA component to initialize on my computer. A test from someone who has talkback running would be good.
May be related to bug 38643...
I tried both test cases with a recent mozilla build and could not reproduce.
I suspect this is a windows-specific bug. I attached a third test case because the second one does not hang for me. It appears to me that it doesnt hang unless you have the drive letter in there, such as file:///C|some/path/that/isnt/there Also, note bug 63048 which tracks the lack of an error-page for local non-existant files. It makes mention of symptoms of this bug
Looks like the same problem as for bug 63642

Marking this bug as a dup. Please check out the patch that is attached to that bug, or better yet update your mozilla/netwerk/ directory and verify that this problem does not exist. I could not reproduce ince this appears to only happen on win98?? *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 69134 ***
