Description Alexey Proskuryakov 2012-01-17 16:58:18 PST
KURL normalizes "file://" to "file:". When later used as a base URL, it's seen as a non-hierarchical one, making completion fail.

This works fine in both IE and Firefox, as the URL is canonicalized to "file:///".

Committed <http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/105294>.
Comment 4 Alexey Proskuryakov 2012-01-18 12:12:39 PST
Looking. Strange, I updated results of two of these.
Comment 5 Alexey Proskuryakov 2012-01-18 12:20:36 PST
Thank you - update results in <http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/105307>.

However, iframe-invalid-source-crash.html and bubble-drag-events.html appear to be broken on Qt because of a DumpRenderTree difference, where it dumps "file:///" as empty path instead of "/". I'll file a separate bug for this.
