Description

18 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.3+) Gecko/20010825
BuildID:    2001082508

The URL listed is a frameset page, with one of the frames having an automatic
reload/refresh.    Each time the frame reloads, an entry is added to the session
history

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to:  http://dormcam.org/index1.shtml
2.wait about 30 seconds or so.  (enough to let the chat frame refresh a couple
of times)
3.Press the back button

Actual Results:  You still remain on the same page

Expected Results:  You are brought to the page you were previously at.

Seeing on Linux 2001082622 too. Not platform specific.

I also see this problem (linux 2001082708) on non-frame pages with refresh;
summary should be changed to a more general description.

changing summary. you can see the pure effect by simply opening the frame into
its own new window. Wait a few seconds and you'll see the back button light up
and the 'Go' fill up with repeats. I'd say this was a major regression.
Keywords: regression
Summary: a reloading frame gets added to the history with each refresh → automatic(meta?) refresh causes page to be added SH each time

the frame url: http://dormcam.mine.nu:8080/messages/messages.html
and from the HTML: <html><head><meta HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="7"> <meta
HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache"></head><body

Forgot to add before: should this still block bug 59387?

re 59837, no b/c it's not isolated to frames as we've both stated.

Still a bug with build 2001090703.

This bug makes it frustrating to use the Back button when monitoring a page
generated by BigBrother, a popular freeware monitor tool available at
http://bb4.com. 

Could the target milestone be set to at least 0.9.5?

simple patch to docshell
This regresion was caused by hte fix to bug 83684 on 8/23/01.  The attached
simple patch fixes this bug. I think I forgot to take care of LOAD_REFRESH when
I was dealing with sequentially repeating urls.
