Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 12760
Login/cookie inconsistencies, please fix!
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:27:20 EDT
My fault is that I use ie5.
I open the browser, go to:
and the grey bar says
I choose "query bug .."
The query page opens and the grey bar says
"not logged in"
I press the "login" link, login, now the query page says
Query bugzilla bugs, want to add one, "add bug" and buzilla tells me "You
are not logged in, login to ..."
Every time I browse bugzilla I'm randomly asked to login. I deleted all
the cookies. The bug is still there.
Remember that bugzilla has problems setting cookies to ie5 browsers, see
If you add the 1 minute freeze every time you select a new product in the
query page, you understand bugzilla is almost unusable since the switch to
Oracle, at least for ie5 users...
Confirmed for IE4 except for the 1 minute freeze. This is _really_ annoying.
Yes, Bugzilla tell me that I'm logged-in, but when I switch to another bug (by
cut'n'pasting new URL to my browser) I'm no longer authenticated even I can see
my login-name on the top of the page. When then I try to submit some report
(still can see: Login: firstname.lastname@example.org on the top of the
page), Bugzilla tell me (after submiting some comment) that I need to re-login.
Also even my name is on the top of the page I'm unable to change bug's
properties (ie reopen bug etc). After hitting submit button and Bugzilla's
complain about that I'm not logged-in and filling again my login this is
possible to do what I want. Sure after filling new URL in my browser, the story
is the same again.
This is 100% reproducible. I tryed various versions od MSIE (5.5 SP1 too) and
It seems to work for some time so closing this wery old bug.
