Please report any other irregularities here.
I wish I could give a public example, but I can't, anyways. Many ftp sites have user directories that when you goto an ftp site using your name you login to that directory. ftp://firstname.lastname@example.org <--without the ending / gets changed into ftp://email@example.com/home/somename or whatever the ftp server specifies as the home directory for that user. This works in 4.x and works partially in IE.

Yeah, I saw this. Neither dougt or I can find the code which used to handle this, though.

This is possibly related to the discussion in bug 84242, where URL->filesystem navigation is not correct. I need to do a trace, but my guess is that the FTP clients are using some extra commands to determine their "current working directory" after a establishing the control connection. Can someone provide a public example or a packet trace?
Summary: ftp home directory not recognized. → ftp: URL w/o path should redirect to home dir
benc: No. If we did a PWD instead of a CWD, then we could get the 'real' path. I'm not sure how to tell our consumers that we're redirecting, though. I need to think about this.
in bug 84242, the new behaviour will be: ftp://user@host/ -> login dir ftp://user@host// -> / See discussion in that bug. -> andreas
