Description Kam Leo 2003-12-29 01:30:22 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
The fedora download/update/development RPMS web pages have html and
CSS sytle sheet errors.  The errors are such that the mozilla browser
either hangs or cannot completely render these pages.  Mozilla.org has
a fix (http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=225848) to handle
improperly formed web pages, but the responsibility should not be
theirs alone. 

The http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub site should conform to W3C
standards and be able to pass the validation tests available at

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
mozilla-1.4.1-18 mozilla-1.5-1 mozilla-1.6b

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter
into mozilla 1.4.1 browser.
2. Use any web brower and go to http://validator.w3.org.
   Enter uri from step 1 into "Address" field and click "Validate URI"
3. Again using any web browser go to http://validator.w3.org.  Click
"CSS Validator" link on right side of page.  Click "Validate your
cascading style sheet by URI".  Enter uri from step 1 and procede with

Actual Results:  
1. Mozilla hangs or renders incomplete page after minutes of waiting.
2. Web page fails W3C validation
3. CSS style sheet fails W3C validation

Expected Results:  
1. Mozilla browser to render web page in seconds, not in minutes or
2. Fedora web pages pass W3C validation.

I've never seen this problem.

Comment 2 Christopher Aillon 2005-03-31 11:08:17 UTC
The mozilla bug has been fixed upstream.  There was some discussion on
fedora-devel-list about fixing the webpage as well.

This bug can be closed though since its about the browser issue.
