From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:0.9.3) Gecko/20010801 BuildID: 2001080104 I'm not sure what the name of this component is, but it's the bar at the bottom of the browser, next to the taskbar, which shows the URL you'll be taken to when clicking on a link, and shows progress, etc. Please update the summary with the correct component name, if there is one. The problem is that it will often say it's contacting a host which has nothing to do with the host you're trying to contact in the current window, but instead is a host from which a web page was loaded in another open window. For instance, say I have slashdot and nytimes up in two different windows. I reload slashdot, and the bar at the bottom will say "Contacting images.nytimes.com" even though the nytimes page is in a different window, and may not even be downloading anything any more. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: Simply open two windows to different sites, and start loading and reloading them. The problem will appear shortly. Expected Results: This component should only have information that is pertinent to the window to which it's attached, not to any other windows.
I have experienced the same problem also. I think that what actually happens is that the status bar shows the previous URL, eg. 1. open url on host A 2. open url on host B -> status bar shows the last image/html/other's hostname (associated with the load on step 1) For example, I type "www.nasa.gov" on the URL-box, wait for it to load, then type "www.mozilla.org" on the same browser window (and press enter), and *then* the statusbar reads "Connected to www.nasa.gov".
I haven't noticed that happen with multiple sites in the same window, as I tend to keep a different window open for each site I'm looking at. But even with that, I do notice that the status bar (thanks! I blanked on the term) has "Contacting host" or "Transferring data from host" along with a hostname that belongs in the status bar of another window, or really shouldn't be in any of the status bars, because the page that host could belong to is already done loading.
I'm seeing this both on the NT talkback build of 0.9.3 and a hand rolled gcc-3.0 Linux athlon build of the same.
possible dup of bug 94038
Yeah, I'll buy that this is a dup of 94038. The problem seems to have gone away once I quit using my proxy (FilterProxy), and the behavior looks the same. I'll leave it to the mozilla folks to actually mark it as a dup, though.
