Description of problem:
Selecting a product clears the Component list. Selecting a version
should reload that list with compnents of the selected version of the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit the "simple query" page of bugzilla.redhat.com
2. Select any product other than the default.
3. Select any version
Actual Results: After step 2, the Component list is cleared. After
step 3, it remains cleared. Hitting browser's reload button reloads
the page with the correct component list.
Expected Results: After step 3, the Component list should be updated
with the correct components.
Browser is Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031016.
This does not occur for me when using Mozilla-1.4. I will have to
download a version of 1.5 and try it to see if it is a regression in
the browser or the standard has changed causeing the jscript on the
query page to break. Does this work for you if you use an older
version of Mozilla?
You're right 1.4.1 does not have the problem. In fact, it is clear
now that the point at which the component list should be updated is
when the product is selected, rather than when the version is selected.
Furthermore, the problem doesn't recur today with Moz 1.5. Did you
update something? (If not, then it may be a Solaris-specific Moz bug.)
Update: The exact sequence of events is this (and it is still
happening with Moz 1.5). Go to bugzilla.redhat.com. Select "Query"
form the menu bar. Select "Fedora Core" from the product list. The
component list goes blank (whereas it should be updated to contain FC
components). Hit "Reload". The component list is refreshed.
Red Hat's current Bugzilla version is 2.18. I am moving all older open bugs to
this version. Any bugs against the older versions will need to be verified that
they are still bugs. This will help me also to sort them better.
I think this one is fixed. I can't reproduce the problem behavior at this point.
Red Hat Bugzilla is now using version 3.2 of the Bugzilla codebase and therefore this bug will need to be re-verified against the new release. With the updated code this bug may no longer be relevant or may have been fixed in the new code.
Updating bug version to 3.2.
I believe this is either fixed or no longer relevant and can be closed.
Thanks for verifying. Closing.
