UA: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16 i686; en-US; 0.8.1) Gecko/20010315 (the Mozilla build with new cache enabled pointed to by www.mozillazine.org) OS: Linux 2.2.16 (Red Hat Linux release 6.2) Visiting the railtrack timetable at: http://18.104.22.168/bin/query.exe/en brings up a timetable search form, submitting the form POST's the data to the same URL: <form ACTION="http://22.214.171.124/bin/query.exe/en" NAME=formular METHOD="POST"> Expected Result: Data submitted to form, results of submission displayed. Actual Result: Unable to tell if data is actually submitted, but as the throbber is only active for a short moment so I suspect it isn't. The page refreshes and the same page as before is displayed. It looks like the browser is going to the cache and just pulling the same copy of the URL. Note: Obviously I was online when I tried this, but switching to offline mode and trying to submit the form produces the same result and no error message is produced (expected: unable to submit form in offline mode). In the console you are told the document was loaded successfully. Steps to reproduce: 1. Use a build with new cache 2. Goto http://126.96.36.199/bin/query.exe/en 3. Enter some details 4. Click submit Reproducable: always Note: Works fine in builds using old cache on all platforms (fine on build ID: 2001031821 and all previous builds). Only tested with new cache under Linux. I am accessing the web through a proxy server.
I can confirm this on the 2001032205 linux build. Also I can confirm that the Post is never submitted ( I checked my server logs, and the post never shows up). It would appear that the page is just re-pulled from the cache. Scott
Sounds like an HTTP bug.
