Description

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9) Gecko/20010505
BuildID:    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9) Gecko/20010505

The location bar in Mozilla0.9 is currently not case-sensitive for javascript:
URLs.  Normally, for URLs, this is perfectly acceptable -- the WWW does not care
about uppercase or lowercase.  However, for JavaScript, uppercase and lowercase
make a big difference.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Type javascript:alert(typeof(document)) into your location bar and press
Enter.  Clear the alert.
2.  Type javascript:alert(typeof(Document)) into your location bar and press
Enter.  Clear the alert.
3.  Click on the dropdown arrow for previous history entries.

Actual Results:  A listing for javascript:alert(typeof(Document)).  No listing
for javascript:alert(typeof(document)).

Expected Results:  A listing for javascript:alert(typeof(Document)) and a
separate listing for javascript:alert(typeof(document)).

This bug is impossible to reproduce, for now "javascript:..." URIs are not listed in location bar's history, unless such a URI is that of an existing tab. And if both
 javascript:alert(typeof(Document))
and
 javascript:alert(typeof(document))
are typed in different tabs, both are listed. This is WFM or INVALID.
