Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; .NET CLR 1.0.3705; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)
Build Identifier: ie 6.0

I have sever bz links in my javadoc (which use frames)

on my local disk (c:\projects...) I load up the html, click a bz link it burps 
that I am required to login (we have groups enabled, more if needed)

so I login, then it drops me on the query page

???? so i put the bug number in 

back to start ...

but if I choose open link in new window (my login is still remembered) the bug 
shows up.



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Bugzilla doesn't really have a way to know if it's inside a frame or not.  That
sounds like a bug in your browser if it's not delivering an existing cookie to a
page opened inside a frame...

(yes I assumed that, I guess I should of explicitly stated it)

but it is an issue all the same. 

is it worth looking into how IE delivers cookies from inside frames?

Yeah, if we can find a way to work around it, there's no reason not to.  Or at
least document what needs to happen if it's something the user has to change on
their end.

I have a feeling it's probably related to security settings...   Mozilla
prevents javascript from accessing the contents or properties of a subframe that
has loaded a document from a different hostname than the one the parent frame
loaded from.  Perhaps IE doesn't have that restriction, and thus prevents
sending cookies as an alternate way to stop the parent javascript from accessing
cookies from another site.

We put a bugzilla 2.16.5 link into a frame and when people do anything they have
to login again.  Take it out of the frame and it works fine.  The two people
reporting this are on MSIE.  I'm on Mozilla and I haven't see it yet.

in short, if the domain does not match, or esp if the frames are c:\whatever
and bz is bz.domain.com you need to add bz.domain.com to your less 
secure/trusted sites in IE.

I alway like to bugzilla as target="_top", which removes the frames, how about 
a refresh link, to do the same on the error message based on the refer header?

Yes, correct. And I think that's a good reason to not try to work around this.
