2006/01/19 14:04:00 - Firefox / LJ strangeness
Whilst grobbling about in grail (my lj style) to deal with the new URLs I noticed the following discrepancy (pointer added to image by hand!)

URLs for userinfo are different in source and in the statusbar

Can anyone offer a plausible explanation?

LJ is a pile of foetid half-thought-through dingo ejaculate.

[don't think about that too much]

It can't be LJ's fault -- firefox is getting one URL in the source code; and showing a different one in the status bar.

The URLs in the source-code and the status-bar don't match up.

It's not caching a 301 Moved Permanently response?

Or trying to be 'smart' and precacheing the contents of the URLs in the document?

(FWIW, IE6 has matching code/mouseover status)

I guess it could be.

I'm viewing your journal in Opera and getting http://www.livejournal.com/users/senji/info when I hover over the little icon. Have you installed any extensions/scripts that turn LJ userinfo URLs into mode=full URLs?

I see /users/senji/info when I mouseover in Firefox (1.5, OSX).
