#7897 closed defect (worksforme)

"bad request" on login with Firefox 3

From time to time, we have user that connects to the TRAC and report a "bad request" Missing or invalid form token. Do you have cookies enabled?

If they try again, it works. So i think it's not related to their configuration, the error occurs from time to time.

A common point: use of last FF version (3.0.5).

(bug similar to #2438 but for FF)

It could be a FF bug, related to the mechanism of update and "save an quit", when FF detects a new version. The problem occurred just after an update of FF. You get the TRAC login page, though you are connected.

Hard to reproduce I guess…

If nevertheless someone can confirm and reproduce this with Trac 0.11.x and up, then please reopen.

I can easily reproduce a "Missing or invalid form token" error, but it's a corner case. Using Firefox 3:

  • Install Session Manager and configure it to restore the tabs of the previous session on open.
  • Open a custom query in a tab.
  • Close Firefox.
  • Wait for a day or so.
  • Re-open firefox.
  • On the custom query page that was restored, click on "Update".

Quite often, this leads to the error mentioned above. My guess is that this has something to do with cached pages.

we have trac 0.11 and firefox 3.0.8 and this also occurs periodically for us. The log file does not seem to shed any light on it, but it is quite annoying as edits have been lost due to it (i.e. mostly occurs when re-bring up firefox from closed but has once occurred during the middle of a ticket edit!). If anyone every works out what the issue is I would love to hear about it.

What we need here is a way to consistently reproduce the issue (and in a reasonable time, i.e. not what I mentioned in comment:3). If anyone can provide this, please report here.

Milestone: 1.0

Valid issue, but hard to reproduce, moving for later.

Firefox 3.6.14. Currently we are using Trac 0.12.2rc1. Do you have any suggestion to this issue?

If that Trac is reachable from the internet, we could try to debug it. Please mention the URL if this is the case.
