Description bert 2014-02-07 14:34:05 UTC
The test page[A] contains a form that uses HTTP POST to post data to a URL [B]. The result is a 307 Temporary Redirect to another URL [C]. HTTP clients are supposed to react to a 307 status code by issuing exactly the same request, i.e., the same POST in this case, to URL [C]. Konqueror does not POST to the new URL, but does a GET on it.

[A] http://www.w3.org/People/Bos/Test/redirect307.html
[B] http://www.w3.org/People/Bos/Test/redirect307-redirect.php
[C] http://www.w3.org/People/Bos/Test/redirect307-result.php

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Konqueror on http://www.w3.org/People/Bos/Test/redirect307.html
2. Press "Submit"

Actual Results:  
The result page says "Failure!" because no form data was passed in the request.

Expected Results:  
The page should say "Success!"
