I have been using several versions of mozilla (M17/M18/0.7) on a Linux RH 6.2 Intel based box. With all these versions, I have encountered the following strange behaviour: I am running 2 web servers on my computer, on different ports (servletrunner and a normal web server, to be precise): say 8080 and 80. the pages generated by the servletrunner contain absolute URIs to servletrunner, e.g.: http://mymachine.mydomain.lu:8080/servlet/myServlet as long as absolute URIs to the 'normal' web server (images, etc.). Moreover, the servlet is using the traditional session management of servlets (cookie based sessions). when following the links (http://mymachine.mydomaine.lu:8080/servlet/myServlet), mozilla tries get pages with a very strange pattern: 1st attempt: http://mymachine.mydomaine.lu:8080/servlet/myServlet 2nd attempt: http://mymachine.mydomaine.lu:80/servlet/myServlet 3rd attempt: http://mymachine.mydomaine.lu:80/servlet/myServlet and the 4th attempt loops, meaning it really gets the correct URI this time. the funny thing is that the web server on port 80 is also running JServe, so that the second (and third) attempts are successful. However, session is naturally lost in that case, since the cookie is not sent to port 80.
