I was testing a XHTML 1.0 Strict valid website on my localhost. It had URL "http://localhost/visaita/tictactoe/Web/index.php?item_id=8&game_password=73|55fc84c0c432ad625a901caaa13108aa&chat_code=74|50b3b60c8be203.98819772#.ULO2EnC23XQ". If I click in URL field between 8 and ?. Then pres shift + end and delete the rest of URL, I get a drop down of suggestions. Then I press arrow left in my keyboard - suggestions dissappear. I press enter and my URL is immediately reset to initial one (with all arguments) even though I wanted to delete them. Server receives all the arguments, so this is not the case of a back-end redirection (tested).
The most interesting effect is that after such refresh ALL HTML LINKS stop working. They refresh page instead of redirecting. Even if I click on a link redirecting to another domain, page still gets refreshed and not redirected. I see it as an obvious and serious bug which happens in very special conditions.
During these redirects FireBug (when enabled) displays interesting stuff. It shows that request without arguments is pending infinitely while immediately after it another request is launched with all unwanted arguments.
Another interesting fact is that page is using late polling AJAX technique (not sure whether it has any impact).
It seems that it is some caching bug.
