Well, from home, using Suse 9.3 and Firefox 126.96.36.199, I can login with no worries (hey, I’m doing it now!). But from work, with my brand-new Suse 11.0, and new Firefox 3.05b, my attempts to login to this OpenSuse forums site produce:
Well, it’s happened to me with Konqueror a couple of times, so it’s not limited to Firefox. Actually, I think it’s related to openSUSE servers – they are apparently possessed by a bunch of gremlins. Sometimes, when I click on a link to a specific forum post, I get the forums home page instead. Not to mention the frequent logouts, already mentioned on these forums. And just this afternoon, I couldn’t log in for several hours: every time I clicked on the login link, I’d get served a message about not being allowed to access the page, prompting me to contact the admins… Weird stuff going on, dude.
I’m not accessing them via a static link, actually. I’m subscribed to the RSS feed and I just click on the links I receive in the feeds. I suppose they’re correct, their domain is generally http://forums.opensuse.org/…
I checked that I had the correct URL, and I tried with Firefox (3.0.4), the most recent version of Opera, and Konqueror (KDE 3.5). With none of them could I log in. I can read posts fine, but the moment I attempt to log in, I obtain a 302 Browser redirect error. I tried deleting cookies first - same result. Maybe it’s something to do with the way our server at work caches things… I might have to speak to our sys admin people.
That’s pretty strange,
because I’m unable to use openSUSE forums from firefox 3.0.3 and 3.0.4
(I can only read some threads through google cache),
but with opera and konqueror it works just as it should.
Not very convenient though, because I’m used to firefox.
