using build: 2001071104 on win2ksp2 when you open this site (which is your local harddrive c:) and press reload you'll get a blank screen. you should get your local harddrive c: again! same happens if you view C: and goto D:! C: will be shown but D: won't anymore. If you go back C: won't also be shown anymore! It looks like mozilla only does show the local file tree once and never again till a mozilla-restart

A restart is not necessary. Opening a new window allows you to browse your local drive. However, reloading or browsing another page and coming back will render a white blank page with name, size, last mod. column headings again. BTW, before this new bug occurred, I would sometimes get a blank blue browser window when navigating to local directories/drives. When this occurs, I just reload the browser and everything works fine after that.
yeah you're right you don't need to restart - you just have to start a new browser window
What happens if you view page source?
Looks like it's working in build 2001071304. However, I still get the blank grayish blue screen I used to get sometimes before this bug came about. At least, now a reload will show you the contents of you local drive.
I updated to build 2001071214 still the same thing: page source showes following when its working: 200: filename content-length last-modified file-type 201: fuq 98028 Mon,%2012%20Jan%201970%2012:21:00%20GMT FILE 201: SP5 0 Mon,%2012%20Jan%201970%2012:22:57%20GMT DIRECTORY 201: WINDOWS 0 Mon,%2012%20Jan%201970%2010:27:40%20GMT DIRECTORY 201: Programme 0 Mon,%2012%20Jan%201970%2010:27:40%20GMT DIRECTORY when I press reload I get an empty screen but view source showes the same content!
This works fine for me on the branch. Can we get this verified - or reopen with explict steps to reproduce?
