Subject [jira] Commented: (INFRA-1438) Cookie handling causes problems for IE and Opera
Date Sun, 09 Dec 2007 02:59:43 GMT


Sebb commented on INFRA-1438:

True, but the issue here is the other way round:

The browser has a cookie for /jakarta, but none for /jakarta-commons.

When logging in to /jakarta-commons, it sends the /jakarta cookie.

For some reason Firefox does not do this, but both IE and Opera seem to.

> I've found that if one logs into jakarta with  IE or Opera, it's then impossible to login
to jakarta-xxx - this seems to be because those browsers match the prefix when deciding to
send the cookie.
