User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:7.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/7.0.1 Build ID: 20110928134238 Steps to reproduce: In middle of rendering a page, the server generates dynamic content and delivers to browser line by line. Call to fflush used to cause new content to appear in browser, but now the page must be complete and the connection closed before the browser renders the content. Server is boa with custom cgi. This is new to this version of Firefox.. used to work fine. Works on older versions as IE, chrome, etc.
Can you post the URL to the server, or is it internal?
Internal.. it runs on an embedded box. The CGI is implemented in C and as I mention, calls to fflush(stdout) used to cause the browser to render the partial content. This is needed because this is the response page from setting the box's IP address and explanatory text and a link to the new IP address are output to be browser *before* the IP is actually changed.. since that will leave the browser in no-mans' land.
We are unable to do something without a testcase
Needs a testcase => needinfo
