The home page never shows up when i load Mozilla. I just get a blank screen with a status message "Transferring data from <insert page here>". I'm not completely sure it's a networking problem, but i had to fill in something. :-) I've tried waiting a few minutes to see if it shows up anyway, but it never does. When i select Go->Home, it'll load with no problem. I've done a little testing with/without proxy settings, using both intranet and internet URL's. If i select an external page (internet), Mozilla will load and present a dialog, asking me for my name and password for the proxy as should be expected. Note that Mozilla fills in my name and password automatically when the dialog shows, which IE never does. If i hit OK immediately, the page will fail to load. If i wait about five seconds, it will.
Had the same problem in Windows ME and 98, but it's gone for me now in build 2001042220. Perhaps the fact that I switched to "load last page," left it that way for a week, then installed a new build and switched back to "load home page" and typed in the homepage fixed it.
Martijn can you still reproduce this? If you can, please try moving your profile directory out of the way and creating a brand new profile, then starting mozilla with this new profile. Worksforme and has always worked both win and linux. Thanks!
qa to me. If this is not happening any more, then I'm going to close it up. I can think of some possible causes, but I would rather avoid speculation if possible.
Hold on. I'm trying to test it, but i can't get any build of Mozilla to work right on my Windows-carrying machine at this time. I just downloaded one again, but it whines about a corrupted file xpcom.xpi. I'll try again first.
OK. It works now. The problem seems to have gone away. I can't reproduce it anymore. Not with my homepage on the local network or on the internet via proxy. Can i change this to worksforme myself? Or are there rules for this?
You can do anything you want with the bugs you reported. So yes you can mark your bugs worksforme, or fixed, or anything else you'd like to mark it ;) Marking worksforme, thanks for re-testing this.

reporter: This bug is a "futured" or "untargeted" bug which has been "resolved/works for me". Most bugs meeting this criteria are usually somewhat out of date or working in the current builds. If this bug is not happening for you in a recent build (such as the Mozilla daily build, Mozilla 0.9.3, or Netscape 6.1), please use the friendly "Mark bugs as VERIFIED" radio button to set this bug to "VERIFIED/WORKS FOR ME" If you reported the bug on a platform (e.g. Linux) and other contributors reported on another platform (e.g. Mac OS), please comment that it works for you but do not verify it yet. For these multi-platform bug reports, we need to verify all reported platforms -OR- create new "still broken on platform X" bugs when you verify.
Oh sorry about that. I forgot about this bug. It hasn't bugged me for about two months now. Not on Windows or Linux. I'm marking it verified.
