Communicator keeps all the follwoing cases unchanged: http://www.packetgram.com/ http://www.packetgram.com:80/ http://www.packetgram.com:/ mozilla seems to have two behaviors worth noting: 1- If the default port = specified port, make the ":port" disappear. 2- If "If the port is omitted, the colon is as well." (from 3.1), Necko seems to corrrect the URL by removing the ":" I tested the URL/location bar + links w/ Open New Window. Probably some people are going to find #1 offensive (scc has strong feelings about this). Others are going to argue #1 helps with user transparency to port numbers. Probably #2 is a feature. I can't think of an exact example, but it might also rationalize really badly written URLs where someone messed up the "username:password" portion of a URL that uses "Common Internet Scheme Syntax". I'm basically creating this bug so I can relnote the behavior.
RESOLVED/WFM: RELNOTE TEXT: Netscape 6 will automatically hid unecessary port information in URLs. If a ":" appears without a port number, the ":" will be removed. http://www.netscape.com:/ -> http://www.netscape.com/ If the port in the URL is default port, the port information will be removed. http://www.netscape.com:80/ -> http://www.netscape.com/
not submitting to NS6.1 relnote due to limited impact. Possible for a "fully annotated networking release ntoes..."
reporter: This bug is a "futured" or "untargeted" bug which has been "resolved/works for me". Most bugs meeting this criteria are usually somewhat out of date or working in the current builds. If this bug is not happening for you in a recent build (such as the Mozilla daily build, Mozilla 0.9.3, or Netscape 6.1), please use the friendly "Mark bugs as VERIFIED" radio button to set this bug to "VERIFIED/WORKS FOR ME" If you reported the bug on a platform (e.g. Linux) and other contributors reported on another platform (e.g. Mac OS), please comment that it works for you but do not verify it yet. For these multi-platform bug reports, we need to verify all reported platforms -OR- create new "still broken on platform X" bugs when you verify.
