Description

18 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.2+) Gecko/20010723
BuildID:    2001072408

This site uses a number of redirects; specifically: Mark Forum Read, Add Post,
and a few others. Mozilla honors the redirects only about 30% of the time as a
rough guess. For example, with Mark Forum Read, often I'll have to click the
link repeatedly, and the redirect finally happens the 4th or 5th attempt.

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a login (you'll need it for Mark Forum Read)
2. View a forum with new posts.
3. Mark the forum read.

Actual Results:  The throbber spins for a few seconds, then stops. The page
being viewed doesn't change.

Expected Results:  The page should change to the main forum view.

This isn't a link problem, as the forums are actually marked read as expected.
Mozilla just doesn't proceed to the Location: as directed.

Can't see this on 2001090308, even after wasting 30minutes of my time on it,
creating an account and reading messages like a madman :). I'm marking
worksforme, and please reopen if you see this reoccur.

If you find a specific pattern to reproduce, please repost and I'll be sure to
follow up. Thanks.
