Can't login with chrome (firefox works perfectly)

Post by urilabob » 2019/06/22 04:47:45

My normal browser is chrome (version 75.0.3770.100-1 on an up-to-date Fedora 30). Whenever I try to log in on it, I get no error message, just get returned to the forum page I was on without a login being effected. However login with firefox works perfectly (version 67.0.2-1.fc30), which is why I'm able to post this. I can't see an obvious reason, and chrome logins on other websites work fine. Anyone have any suggestions as to why centos forum/chrome should be special?

I came across this same problem using Chrome Version 77.0.3865.120 (Official Build) (64-bit) which had me stumped for sometime.

Thanks to yourself mentioning the 'obvious' result of it working in Firefox (gave myself a kicking for not thinking of it!) and also finding
that it worked - I tried again in Chrome and after turning extensions of one-by-one and retrying - I narrowed it down to the extension
"HTTPS Everywhere" - turn that off and hey presto.

Not bothered to try and work out why.

I have a similar problem. Firefox works without a problem. Perhaps the problem is in the plugins?

Did you ever find a reason? I have Last Pass and RES, I can log into Reddit on Chrome, but not Firefox. I've deleted cookies and history, but it's not working. I think it might be because of an add on/extension, but I have basically the same ones on Firefox that I do on Chrome.
