Port number is not returned when querying window.location in JavaScript.


The JavaScript query window.location does not include the port number in BrowserNG releases prior to 7.1.17291.

How to reproduce

Create a HTML page on a server running some other port than 80:

<script type="text/javascript">
alert("Found window location: " + window.location);
<h1>Location test</h1>


Fixed in upcoming firmware updates.

Possible workaround:

 url = window.location.protocol + "//" + window.location.host + window.location.pathname +
