Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch the latest nightly.
2. attempt to load a URL that doesn't exist (I usually just keymash for 10 or so characters)
3. observe that the address bar enters the loading state and starts filling in then stops, and that the spinny activity circle keeps spinning indefinitely. No page is ever loaded.
pewtermoose: clicking a link to download something keeps the address bar in a loading state too
Definitely introduced in the last nightly, or no?
Also, what is "the last nightly"? time changes, you know ;)
apologies, although between the timestamp you could probably have figured it out :P
from what i can tell using the nightlies to test, the bug was introduced between 21322 and 21368 at which point, I got distracted.
Likely fallout from r21367.
It turns out that the key is unqualified domain names, not nonexistent pages. This shows the error page fine: nonexistent-domain-name.example.com
But typing just "nonexistent-domain-name" fails.
