In recent NS builds (past several months) I've noticed a
change in behaviour when logging in to our company bug
tracking system. At one time I could go through the
Login page and from then on I would be able to access
the whole bug tracking database through its web UI.
At some point that changed so that now,
a) if I go through the normal Login process it fails
to accept my credentials;
b) I have found that by going through an alternative URL
that throws up the Login page it results in success;
c) even though I've logged in, when I open a new NS
window by clicking on a link that should open a
bug report (e.g. http://jira/browse/XXX-nnn
tells me I'm not logged in;
d) if I enter the same URL as in c) above into the
window that was opened as per b) above, then it
displays the page without any trouble.
On the face of it, this looks like the cookie-stored
login status is associated only with the window that
was used for successful login. Is this expected?
Do other people see similar behaviour? Should I file
a bug report?
I'm currently using the 2.7 release on VRPC-SA but this
affects earlier releases and development builds.
I'm seeing something similar (on 2.7), in that when I'm logged in to
my Orpheus webmail, if the session times out, then I can't login
again, I'm just taken back to the login page, with the message 'Your
session has timed out'.
Deleting the cookies (is the 'Are you sure' second delete an accident,
or intentional ?), and closing the window is not enough to restore
access, only quitting NetSurf completely will restore access.
Should I file a bug report ? :)
