CodeBlocks forums banned access from Firefox on Debian Linux
« on: December 20, 2020, 08:52:25 am »
I have said about it again and again but no one believes. Today I confirmed it (again). Latest Firefox (real Firefox 84 from Mozilla). Not Basilisk. Not any other Firefox based or Firefox derived browsers.

It's not only Debian. I've been able to reproduce this issue on both platforms:

All links contain
Code
?PHPSESSID=
argument when you aren't logged in and they redirect to the main website, not the forums (even though the subdomain claims to be forums...)

So I suspect this issue only affects Guests...

Trying to login also kicks you out to the main website and makes you unable to access forums while your login cookie exists.

I think I'm getting closer...

FF sets a request option/header
Code
TE: Trailers
and when I convinced FF NOT to set it, the page loaded correctly.

Maybe it breaks Cloudflare or the main server? https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Headers/TE

P.S. Vivaldi and Opera don't set this request option/header

I wrote to you that the default ff included only https, and your server incorrectly redirects therefore both a problem and the certificate already as 2 years came to the end for a forum :(

https mode is completely irrelevant to this issue

I use FF 84.0 and I disable options https only, becouse can't load forum page. Why administartor not use free Letsecrypt certificate?

It's not only Debian. I've been able to reproduce this issue on both platforms:

What is the second platform (that you have duplicated the issue on) ?

Tim S.
C Programmer working to learn more about C++ and Git.
On Windows 7 64 bit and Windows 10 32 bit.
On Debian Stretch, compiling CB Trunk against wxWidgets 3.0.

When in doubt, read the CB WiKi FAQ. http://wiki.codeblocks.org

Sorry, thought it was obvious.

Windows 10.

My bad.

I have not seen the issue on Windows 7. Edit: Using FF 84.0 (64-bit)

You have to log out and nuke your codeblocks cookies and/or use incognito mode. Also FF 84 x64.

Though it might be Win10 only.. something about modern software?
