Description Adam Thompson 1999-01-23 21:01:26 UTC
When using lynx (lynx-2.8.1-5) to access BugZilla, the login page appears repeatedly. The system (not sure which piece: BugZilla or Lynx) does not seem to "remember" that I have already logged in. Four or five times. Specifically, when I select the "Commit" link at the bottom of this form, I will probably get prompted to log in. Again. ------- Additional Comments From 01/23/99 16:03 ------- Yup. Lynx displayed the login page again, before showing me the confirmation page. Then, when I select "View Bug#930", I get to login again! Now I get to log in again just to add this comment. *sigh*
Comment 1 Adam Thompson 1999-01-23 21:35:59 UTC
(finally gave up - using Netscape this time) A possibly relevant point is that Lynx was NOT offered a cookie by BugZilla. Don't know if that's how it works, but figured I'd point that out.
Comment 2 Aleksey Nogin 1999-01-26 03:28:59 UTC
I want to point out that Bugzilla also forgot to put the e-mail address into the comment header!

The original bugzilla was not designed to support lynx at all. I have been slowly re-working the code to allow lynx to be usable without too much pain, but as you have seen, it's not there yet. It is a work in progress. ------- Email Received From Adam Thompson <firstname.lastname@example.org> 02/01/99 17:48 -------

Also, fo some reason this bug report shows "Email Received From Adam Thompson", but does not give any links to actual e-mail.
Comment 5 Thomas D. Shepard 1999-12-20 00:16:59 UTC
I see the same behavior using Netscape.
Comment 6 David Lawrence 2001-03-18 23:22:49 UTC
Newest versions of Lynx seem to work fine now with storing cookies given by Bugzilla. Please reopen this bug if this is not the case.
