Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 45498] New: j_security_check redirects to favicon.ico
Date Wed, 30 Jul 2008 01:52:17 GMT

           Summary: j_security_check redirects to favicon.ico
           Product: Tomcat 5
           Version: 5.5.9
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Connector:HTTP

Since I started to deploy a web application at the root of a Tomcat instance
(running inside JBoss), the first login attempt after starting the browser
always results in a redirection to the site's favicon! The login itself is
successful (re-entering the site address loads the home page, logged in). I can
then log in and out (and access the site) without any trouble -- until I next
restart the browser. This happens regardless of what browser is used (I tried
Firefox 3 and Internet Explorer 7). Following are the headers of the
