Ben, could you please re-try this with a latest build? That would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
Hi, I still get the error. Can anyone reproduce it? Is it just me? I went for two weeks with half of web site graphics not showing up on mozilla, thinking it was a bug, when erasing my prefs file fixed it. This problem remains (for me) in teh 2001031204 build.
Confirming, I see this on 2001-03-10-08, Windows 2000. Steps I did to reproduce: 1. Right click on desktop, go to New, then select Shortcut. 2. In the "Type the location of the item:" box, enter 'http://www.mozillazine.org'. Click Next. 3. In the "Type a name for this shortcut" box, enter 'Mozillazine'. Click Finish. 4. Open a new Mozilla window, minimize until you see the desktop. Drag the icon to the Mozilla window in the taskbar, Mozilla opens. Drop it into the page. The page looks like this: [InternetShortcut] URL=http://www.mozillazine.org/ Modified=708C406045ABC0014D with a URL (on my machine) of "file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Administrator/Desktop/Mozillazine.url". Expected results are, obviously, redirecting to Mozillazine.org. Not sure if it's a dupe, but it is reproducible on Windows 2000.
