Description Steven W. Orr 2003-06-26 20:18:18 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030525

Description of problem:
Using Mozilla which is using privoxy, go to
and see that the text which contains the open keyword is translated to concat.
Reproducible every time. We have determined that the problem is privoxy related.

You can see the reported bug at mozilla at 


(We originally thought the bug was in Mozilla.)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. http://davesource.com/Bugs/mozilla.2.html
2. See the word concat?
3. Now fetch the same file using lynx (or without privoxy).

Actual Results:  The word concat was displayed.

Expected Results:  The word open should have been displayed.

Additional info:

I'm calling this severity high because it represents a data loss.

Comment 1 Karsten Hopp 2003-06-26 21:07:28 UTC
Thats a known problem of privoxy. Everything will be filtered unless you configure privoxy to 
omit filtering for URLs match a certain pattern.  
Please add a regex like this at the top of your user.action file (accessable vi http://p.p/): 
{ -filter } 
(Everything after { -filter }  needs to be in one line) 
A similar line is already as a comment in the user.action file, this one is a more enhanced 
version from one of the privoxy authors.
