From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:0.9.1+) Gecko/20010626 BuildID: 2001062604 When I follow a new (not yet cached) URL from my email window, the browser displays a blank page. In most cases doing view source on the page displays an HTML document with text <html><body></body></html>. I *may* also have come accross scenarios where I could see the correct page source but the browser display was blank. Hitting refresh brings up the page correctly. -Tiwari Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open an email which has an uncached URL link in the message 2.Follow the link 3.Browser shows blank page 4.Hitting refresh brings up correct page 5. In some cases the displayed page will be blank even though view source would show the correct source.

Reporter, please try this with a newer build.
I can repro this on branch with current builds Saw this all platforms on branch win32 2001-07-11-06 0.9.2 branch linux 2001-07-11-05 0.9.2 branch mac 2001-07-11-13 0.9.2 branch ALSO on Trunk 2001-07-06 build win32 To Repro: If I leave Mail app up, but close ALL open browser windows, then click on a link in a mail message, the blank page appears. After the first blank page, clicking on any links in mail will open the page correctly. Maybe releated to bug 90393? Nominating nsbeta1 for potential high visibility

cc: vishy. I think this may be related (or even a duplicate) to a bug Vishy was telling PDT about where if there are no browser windows open, clicking a link in mail opens the browser window, but not to the URL clicked on. I couldn't locate that bug number.
Works for me on build 2001071104 -Tiwari

Lisa the bug number for the one you mentioned is 73141. That was specific to the first time the browser window is brought up by view message source or a link in a mail message. That bug was fixed and verified. Suzanne's bug is different because she tried her scenario on the 73141 fix and her bug was still there. Another bug like this (89691)is still opened and there are other bugs out there that mention at random times clicking a link or view source presents a blank page. I don't think this one is fixed yet.
Marking verified fixed in the Sept 5 build (2001-09-05-05).
