Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 598353
Browser plugin tends to rewrite ? to _ in URLs, causing 404 errors
Last modified: 2010-06-21 09:08:35 EDT
Description of problem:
I've noticed that some web sites that are redirecting the browser based on a Java applet or something like that, will rewrite to a URL that has «_» instead of «?». This causes the web page to fail. I'm assuming this is a bug in the plugin/JDK itself since I've seen the same thing happen on two completely independent web sites.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F13, java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin-220.127.116.11-37.b17.fc13.x86_64, firefox-3.6.3-4.fc13.x86_64
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to <http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp>
2. Press the button «Verify Java version»
The browser gets redirected to <http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp_jre_version=1.6.0_17&vendor=Sun+Microsystems+Inc.&os=Linux&os_version=18.104.22.168-95.fc13.x86_64>
The browser should have been redirected to <http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp?jre_version=1.6.0_17&vendor=Sun+Microsystems+Inc.&os=Linux&os_version=22.214.171.124-95.fc13.x86_64>.
java-1.6.0-openjdk-126.96.36.199-41.b18.fc13 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 13.
java-1.6.0-openjdk-188.8.131.52-41.b18.fc13 has been pushed to the Fedora 13 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
java-1.6.0-openjdk-184.108.40.206-39.b18.fc12 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 12.
This still affects the current F12 version (but not the test version in comment 4!) so this could be reopened with the Version changed to 12 (although hopefully the test version will be pushed to stable soon, at which point it won't matter).
Sure thing, Andre.
