Description

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0  Gecko/20010806
BuildID:    

A link on a webpage should change color after you have visited the page it
points to.  I have verified that the "visited links" and "unvisited linkd"
colors are different in Preferences/appearance/colors.  I have "Always use the
colors ...specified by the webpage" checked. Checking "Use my chosen colors" has
no effect. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start browser
2.Create a webpage with the following links
http://www.scienceu.com/geometry/facts/solids/handson.html
3.Click on link
4.Press Back - link to geometry figures should have changed color.

Actual Results:  Link remains same color before and after being visited

Expected Results:  link should change color after being visited.

I believe this is a dup of Bug 95687 If someone w/ power to change it agrees..
please change status/resolution.

Possibly bug 93302 is also related (There isn't much of a description on that bug)
hmmm, not sure if it'd be a dup of bug 95687... i haven't encountered this,
except while testing bug 90081 --which turned out to be my hitting up against
bug 12493...

let me grab a more recent build to test with the URL provided here...
Assignee: pchen → attinasi
tested using 2001.08.21.08-comm on linux [rh6.2]. the vlink color appears for
the "java" links i clicked, but not for the "Info Center", "Geometry Center",
etc links at the bottom. i noticed that the url's for links at the bottom are
mixed-case [http://www.ScienceU.com/] --are mixed-case url's also considered
non-canonical? if so, then this would be a dup of bug 12493.

Yes, one of the things that happens when a URL is canonicalized is that the 
hostname becomes all lower-case.  This offers some protection against spoofs 
like "paypaI.com" (where the last letter is a capital i).
dup of 12493, then.
