From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.3) Gecko/20010803 BuildID: 20010803 This is a rather spooky one... I've been using mozilla rather regularly since 0.8 but this only appeared in 0.9.3. I am using RH 7.1 and KDE. I spent some time looking into the bug list but could not find any related bug report, even though if this happens as often as in my case, it should be a fairly common and severe bug report! I got the mozilla i am using following the links on the mozilla site: % rpm -qi mozilla-0.9.3-0 Name : mozilla Relocations: /usr Version : 0.9.3 Vendor: Red Hat, Inc. Release : 0 Build Date: Fri 03 Aug 2001 08:56:40 PM EEST Install date: Wed 08 Aug 2001 12:48:04 AM EEST Build Host: stripples.devel.redhat.com Group : Applications/Internet Source RPM: mozilla-0.9.3-0.src.rpm Size : 17438979 License: MPL Packager : Red Hat, Inc. <http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla> First time i saw it while using the bookmark manager. I would drag & drop a URL into a mozilla browser window. The URL line would sometimes change to the new URL (as it should) but sometimes it would append the new URL (including the "http://" string) at the end of whatever there was already in the URL line. Either way, the browser would not display the new URL, but it would reload the old URL (i.e., whatever the was in the URL line prior to the drag & drop operation). Hitting reload, holding down the shift key, or retyping the URL from scratch did not help. So this must not be related with the bookmark manager, but should be a browser problem. Ever since, i noticed the problem in a number of different occasions. I cannot say i noticed any regularity as to when or how it occurs, except this: it seems to happen mainly when the target URL involves some sort of redirection. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: I am not sure this will work for you, or even for me (because it may depend on what happened before the following steps actually take place). 1. Open Bookmark Manager, where among other URLs i have this: http://www.go-rts.com/ 2. Drag & drop this URL into the mozilla browser window. 3. It may help if, before doing this, you drag & drop other URLs from your Bookmark list. Give it some time and try several different URLs, until the problem arises. 4. Note: If this bug has to do with redirection alone, it may suffice to just try to open the URL without messing with the bookmark manager. In fact, this is what happens to me, but i mention the bookmark procedure because it may have to do with how it started. Actual Results: It takes me to a Web mail page from BellSouth company! Note: chances are good that http://www.go-rts.com is actualy hosted on BellSouth servers, so this may well be a redirection problem! The "Page Info" window (right-click, "View Page Info") thinks it is actually http://www.go-rts.com that i am viewing, but the "Images" tab correctly identifies the displayed image as http://images.bellsouth.bigfoot.com/images/bellgreen/your_neighbor.com.gif (see also Additional Info below) Expected Results: Netscape 4.77 correctly takes me to the city of Gainesville Regional Transit System. Here is the source of the BellSouth page that is actually downloaded: <!-- saved from url=(0022)http://internet.e-mail --> <html> <head><title>WebEmail Alert</title> </head> <body BACKGROUND="http://images.bellsouth.bigfoot.com/images/bellgreen/main_back.gif" BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF" TEXT="#000000" LINK="#005EAD" VLINK="#32748D" ALINK="#0000EE"> <table cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 border=0 width=600> <tr> <td align="center" valign="TOP"><a href="http://www.bellsouth.com"><img src="http://images.bellsouth.bigfoot.com/images/bellgreen/your_neighbor.com.gif" alt="click here to go to the home page" width=600 height=55 border=0></a> <br><br> <font face=arial,helvetica,sans-serif size=2> The WebEmail system will be down from 12:00 am until 6:00 am <br>Saturday morning for system maintenance and upgrade. <br> Thank you for your patience.</font> </td> </tr> </table> </body> </html>
Reporter: Are you using a proxy (junkbuster) ?
Yes, i am using junkbuster. However, Netscape was also using junkbuster, and yet it displayed the correct URL. Anyway, i have disabled junkbuster on mozilla to see if it helps. It would be rather bad if i could not use junkbuster any more, though...
junkbuster itself is broken... You can use junkbuster if you change the http version from 1.1 to 1.0 under edit\preferences\debug\networking Other Browser works fine with junkbuster because: NS4.7x use only Http 1.0 IE5.x use http1.0 for all proxies Please read bug 38488 for all informations.. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 38488 ***

Does the problem go away if you turn off junkbuster?

I guess i should now wait till the Junkbuster gets up to date... Though i am not sure what the advantages of HTTP 1.1 are, nor if they are used at all by web site developers...
