Description Mike Grant 2010-12-22 13:33:58 EST
Description of problem: The openjdk firefox plugin appears to lose a cookie when making a http request. This has serious consequences for any web pages with cookie-using applets, frequently resulting in denied requests or broken applets. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Majority of testing was against java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin-126.96.36.199-188.8.131.52.fc13.x86_64 but this has been confirmed on current Fedora 14 rpms too. How reproducible: 100% Steps to Reproduce: 1. Load Firefox with the openjdk plugin. Set some cookies - e.g. visit http://rsg.pml.ac.uk/staff/mggr/cookies/cookietest-set.php - this sets 7 cookies named TestCookie[1-7] 2. Confirm they are correctly set - e.g. visit http://rsg.pml.ac.uk/staff/mggr/cookies/cookietest-read.php or look at the cookie store in Firefox 3. Run a java applet that makes an HTTP request (including cookies) and note one cookie is missing - e.g. visit http://rsg.pml.ac.uk/staff/mggr/cookies/test.html which retrieves and displays the output from the cookietest-read.php link above. Source of this applet is at http://rsg.pml.ac.uk/staff/mggr/cookies/HelloWorld.java (yeah, I'm not good at Java) Actual results: Java plugin output shows the webserver saw TestCookie[2-7] (TestCookie1 is missing) Expected results: Java plugin output shows the webserver saw TestCookie[1-7] Additional info: Attached copies of the relevant testing scripts. You'll need to build the java class (javac HelloWorld.java). Using the Sun Java plugin, everything works correctly (all 7 cookies are reported). This can be tested by: "sudo rpm -e java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin ; cd ~/.mozilla/plugins ; ln -s SUN_JRE_LOCATION/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so" I looked at reporting this upstream, but had some difficulty finding the appropriate location, then some more difficulty building a test environment to confirm this isn't just a Fedora issue. Please advise whether (and where) I should try upstream or if Fedora can handle this.
Comment 1 Mike Grant 2010-12-22 13:35:15 EST
Created attachment 470278 [details] PHP script to display cookies set in the request made to it.
Comment 2 Mike Grant 2010-12-22 13:35:42 EST
Created attachment 470279 [details] PHP script to set 7 cookies.
Comment 3 Mike Grant 2010-12-22 13:36:29 EST
Created attachment 470280 [details] Java applet source ; makes a (hardcoded) request to the PHP script that displays cookies set, then redisplays that locally.
Comment 4 Mike Grant 2010-12-22 13:37:08 EST
Created attachment 470281 [details] HTML page to start Java applet.
