I was recently sent to this URL to show the confirmation status of a hotel reservation:

This shows up as a completely blank page. Viewing the source shows that it actually is intended to automatically refresh to a different address, with refresh time of "1.5". I think Mozilla doesn't like such fractional refresh times.

I was able to go on to the site I really needed to get to by manually inputing the URL from the meta tag, but should I consider this a Mozilla bug or a tech evangelism incident? Is there any standard that indicates whether Mozilla should or shouldn't support fractional times for meta-refreshing? Actually, I think "meta refresh" is a nonstandard "feature" to begin with, not part of any official standard, so this may be a matter of "your implementation is as good as mine".
