Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052906 Firefox/3.0
Build Identifier: Weave 0.2.4

Initially after FF is running and weave just started to sync, you can use cookie to run Google related products, e.g. Gmail, Reader, everything is ok.

However, after a few mins, the weave sync the new cookie from the server and the current sessions prompt for login again.

User will therefore have to re-login again to get the cookie right.

Going to the google.com itself will also reset the location setting. Therefore requires user to click "google.com in english" again.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start FF
2. Open some Google product or Yahoo Mail.
3. Wait for weave sync to complete
Actual Results:  
Current session prompts for login


This also happens to my Yahoo Mail client. It just stop working and prompt for login again.

Cookie sync was pretty buggy, so we've disabled it.  It'll be rewritten after 0.3.
