Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2007-09-16 10:23:21 EDT
Description of problem:
The first time Firefox started, its home page is set to
http://start.fedoraproject.org/ -- this setting is not persisted, however (the
second time Firefox is run, I get a blank page). An attempt to set the homepage
URL back to this would cause the URL to be immediately erased, even before the
Preferences window is closed. If any other URL is used (including the same URL
without the trailing dash) the input is accepted as normal.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Firefox
2. Edit->Preferences
3. Set home page to http://start.fedoraproject.org/
4. Navigate to the above URL
5. Edit->Preferences
6. Set home page to current URL
Actual results:
Both (3) and (6) results in the URL being immediately erased (the text input
remains empty)

Expected results:
The URL is entered properly

Looks like Firefox does not allow the same value to be used in
browser.startup.homepage and startup.homepage_override_url 
Comment 2 Matěj Cepl 2007-12-20 11:47:04 EST
We just updated the Firefox version in Fedora/development from 2.0 to a 3.0
pre-release version, which improves performance, memory usage, and fixes many
bugs and crashes.

Closing as CANTFIX since we aren't fixing bugs filed against 2.0 now that 3.0 is
in.  If this bug is still present in rawhide using a Firefox 3.0 version, please
re-open this bug.

Thanks and Happy Holidays
