In the table under property 'content', it states that response.content will contain the URL when a 302 response is received. However, that's not the case. The URL is returned in responseLocation?.

This is correct. With a 302 redirect, response.content contains nothing while response['Location'] contains the new URL.

(In [6147]) Fixed #4360 -- Corrected where HTTP headers are in the test response. Also noted that it is an extension of HttpResponse, not a simpler object. Thanks, John Shaffer for the first part.
