Steps to reproduce

DESCRIPTION:

https://googledrive.com/host/0B8BLd2qPPV7XfkZXakdjQU5aVzRTY2Z1UHU5dUQyNl9tRU5JMDJtTG9xa2tPaTZXdm5taWc/XSS-test2.html?<script>alert(‘hi’)</script>hello

Using F12-Network tool or Fiddler, watch for network access when refreshing the linked page. Nothing happens.

 

Not even when “Always refresh from server” and “Clear entries on navigate” are selected in F12 Network tool.

 

I assume it’s because the page was rewritten via document.write().

 

For comparison:

The commandbar View Source button gives its present state.

The menubar File > Edit with Notepad gives its original state.

This makes it really difficult to reload a page during debugging. (I have resorted to closing the session and restarting).
