#9438 signing into a service like fedora magazine causes a bogus authentication dialog on chrome/windows.
Opened 3 months ago by jperrin. Modified 3 months ago

Describe what you would like us to do:

stop the bogus http auth window from popping up, and causing confusion.

When do you need this to be done by? (YYYY/MM/DD)

this is annoying, not a blocker. whenever you can get to it is fine.

I think I have fixed this. Can you test and confirm?

How about we ask the ipa folks if there's any better solution here than the one I tried? :)

@cheimes any ideas here? I tried the suggestion here:


ie, adding some stuff to ipa-redirect.conf.

That's bad advise. abompard and Arrfab were dealing with a broken FAS staging system because they applied the rules in https://pagure.io/fedora-infra/ansible/blob/master/f/roles/ipa/server/files/ipa-rewrite.conf#_24

It's an old bug in Windows that affects Chrome, Edge, and other browsers that use certain libraries from Windows. AFAIK Firefox is fine. You can read more in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1309041

The correct solution is https://github.com/gssapi/mod_auth_gssapi#example-1 . You might need a better browser match that just handles broken browsers on Windows.

Ah ha! good to know... will take a look, and many thanks!

It might also help if more people report the bug with Chrome Browser team and MSFT.

@jperrin Do you know anyone at Microsoft? :laughing:
