Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 45498] j_security_check redirects to favicon.ico
Date Wed, 30 Jul 2008 23:11:59 GMT

What browser did you use? I have confirmed the problem with default
installations of Firefox 2 and 3 (problem observed only after restarting the
browser) and with Internet Explorer 7 (problem observed only after clearing all
cached data). Opera 9.5 on the other hand seems fine (even after clearing all
cached data), not sure why. What appears to be happening is that the browser
sends a request for the favicon after loading the login page. When the login
form is submitted (from the root of the web server), Tomcat redirects to the
last request in the same path -- the favicon! Jetty (6.1.11) does not have this
problem (perhaps it remembers what request triggered the authentication form?)
so I'm assuming this is a fixable bug.
