Bug report from Mathieu ARNOLD <arn@mygale.org>:

I put file:/c:/ into the location toolbar of viewer.exe
I clicked on Program Files
so, the location became : file://c:/Program Files
then i clicked on directx
and the location became : file://c:/directx which doesn't exist...
so the displayed page remained the same.
then i passed over 'Up to higher level directory' and the status bar
displayed file:/// which doesn't exist at all, so, i clicked on it, and
it crashed...

build.

No longer crashing with 11/24 build on win95 xpviewer, but still some problems
with file navigation. Taking off stop ship list and changing summary.

The problems are still as angus noted. Gags, are you the person for this or
someone else?
There are other bugs too that relate to the way the url is displayed in the
location bar. Investigating...
file://C:/ URL works for HTML files (I have created a HTML file and I was able
to open with viewer.exe). It seems to have problems opening .txt files. I was
able to traverse the directories on the C: drive also.

I will keep trying to narrow down.

thanks,
raman

The above still seems to happen. In 4.x, the URL was being escaped (adding %..)
and in 5.0 we don't seem to do that. That could be the cause of the problem.

thanks,
raman

Occasionally, Bugzilla will burp and cause Verified bugs to reopen when I do
this in a bulk change.  If this happens, I will fix. ;-)
Check with Necko please.
