Can't create new AWS Lambda function


(Core :: DOM: Core & HTML, defect, P1)

(Keywords: regression, site-compat)

Steps to reproduce:
1. go to the AWS Lambda console
2. press "create function"
3. give it a name, and choose any role
4. press the "Create function"

The function is created and the page navigations to the function configuration.

The button stays greyed out for a while, then eventually returns to its original state and no navigation occurs. The function is not created.

mozregression points at bug 1454325 as the cause of the regression.

[Tracking Requested - why for this release]: This significantly impacts the ability to use a feature of AWS in Firefox.
Anne, what do you think? I get the feeling that between this and the Mapbox issue in bug 1494443, we need to at least make the pref added in bug 1454325 nightly-only for now (if even nightly-only), while we work the details out with site owners and other browser vendors.

What's the specific problem here? Does AWS want to see a space between the semicolon and the following parameter? Is there a rationale better than minification for the serialization algorithm in the spec not putting a space there?
Yeah, it'd be good to know the specific problem here. I basically see two solutions:

1. We start serializing with a space.
2. We only modify the existing Content-Type header if the charset parameter value is not a case-insensitive (or case-sensitive as other browsers do modify otherwise, but they also modify in place and not parse-then-serialize) match for UTF-8.

I filed to coordinate with other implementers who are also in the process of tackling this.

Do we have any test account credentials that I could use to sign into AWS? (And if we do, will there be a two-factor ping requiring some coordination?)
Just to update, we're asking our friends at Amazon about creds.

You could sign up for a free account, I think:
I'm waiting on a test-account in bug 1498268, but if that drags on too much longer I'll just bite the bullet and provide AWS with my phone number to make a free account.
(That said, we're also reverting the change that causes this in bug 1499136, so the need for this is diminished).
Anne, I finally got my test-account to confirm what's happening here. The problem here is the case-normalization, not a missing space. We're sending this:


But if I disable dom.xhr.standard_content_type_normalization in about:config, we send this, and the AWS Lambda function is successfully created:

Thanks a lot Thomas, that means fixes it (as we'll just leave the Content-Type header alone). No site so far suggests that serializing the MIME type with a space is also needed, but that's probably still what we should do I think. Hmm.

I can confirm this is working now in 65.0a1.

Marion, I think this should actually be fixed in 64, since it was fixed in bug 1499136 (which is marked as fixed in 64).
