Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:10.0.6) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/10.0.6 Iceweasel/10.0.6

Steps to reproduce:

I have attempted to login to http://launchapd.net and http://www.bmo.com, following the links to the appropriate https login page.




Actual results:

Launchpad refuses login with correct credential complaining that I came from a stale page.
BMO (bank) complains that I am trying to login from a bookmark.

In both cases the Midori browser works.



Expected results:

I should have been able to log in to the sites.

This was a profile issue of some kind.  Cookies at one time I had as manually ok.  I changed it back to normal cookie operation, but I suspect that the switch back didn't fully reset the cookie handling options.  Using a new profile worked.

Could also have been some security/privacy setting or extension.
