    On two Win10 x64 machines in both Firefox 46.0.1 and Cyberfox 46.0.2 sometimes when I click to login to these forums I get redirected to hxxps://www.wilderssecurity.com/login/login and FF asks if I want to report the site. Anyone else see this? Is this a bug with the forums or something else?

    I use LastPass to fill the logins fields if that helps.

    I have not seen the same with Chrome or IE11.

    Thanks.

    "login/login" is the actual page that processes the login authentication. It's a POST transaction, so, you don't actually sit at it. You just kind of pass through it.

    A typical login session goes like this. This is me just now arriving at the index page, using the Login link, and getting redirected back to the index:

    Code:
    1.1.1.1 - - [10/May/2016:18:54:38 -0400] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200 18766 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:46.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/46.0"
    1.1.1.1 - - [10/May/2016:18:54:48 -0400] "POST /login/login HTTP/1.1" 303 5 "https://www.wilderssecurity.com/" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:46.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/46.0"
    1.1.1.1 - - [10/May/2016:18:54:48 -0400] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200 19622 "https://www.wilderssecurity.com/" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:46.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/46.0"
    
    The question here is probably not what the forum is doing, but, why Firefox seems to want to question/report it. All browsers do the same sequence to log in. The others just don't make note of it.

    I think sometimes Firefox stops there instead of passing through.

    Next time it happens I'll post a screenshot.

    Thanks.

    @LowWaterMark ,

    Here you go. I think FF forgets to pass through.

    I am having this issue on Malware Tips website. I tried regenerating cert8.db in FF profile, but didn't work. Running x86 v46.0.1

    I don't remember this happening on v45, cannot recall if it happened on v46.0.0

    It does. I wrote that. But, when I read this...
    I'm thinking it's not just here. While I don't know what it is.. I see people saying they have it there, too. So, it is what? Just a WSF issue? Or maybe, something else?

    Data! We need LOTS more data!

    Nothing has kicked up a fuss in the past 2 days/nights. Maybe the glitch rectified itself! I will keep my ears peeled for any malfunctions that are not a result of my insanity levels :)

    I am starting to get this glitch on OpenSSL

    Can someone confirm please? Mind you, it worked once or twice... then crapped itself!
