Description fednuc 2017-11-25 12:01:37 UTC
I was greeted this morning with a (GNOME?) portal login window that had opened http://nmcheck.gnome.org/. I'm not sure if there was a network blip or not (though my ISP's stats graph doesn't show any outages overnight), but that URL is wrong in two ways: * GNOME's commectivity checker endpoint is http://nmcheck.gnome.org/check_network_status.txt (not the domain root). * Fedora AFAIK is supposed to be using http://fedoraproject.org/static/hotspot.txt , according to /usr/lib/NetworkManager/conf.d/20-connectivity-fedora.conf I'm guessing the window *stayed* open because the expected response wasn't received, since it was a directory index instead of "NetworkManager is online" (GNOME config.) or "OK" (Fedora config.), so the checker assumed it was a portal login page. I don't know if this is a Fedora-specific, GNOME or NetworkManager bug then TBH. Anecdotally, someone on #fedora on IRC said they saw exactly the same thing on F27 yesterday.

Looks also like https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=790826

This happened again today on Fedora 28 Workstation, on 2 different machines, 3 separate accounts, exactly as described above.
