Web staff client can't login with Firefox

Asked by Jason Stephenson on 2018-02-27

I go to https:://host.domain.tld/eg/staff/ in Firefox, and I get the login screen. When I enter my username and password and then click the "Sign in" button, nothing happens. I am using a self-signed certificate.

What's wrong?

You are also not using a proxy for port 7682 to 443.

When using a self-signed certificate with Firefox and not using a proxy for port 7682 (the websockets secure port), you need to connect to also connect to http://host.domain.tld:7682/ in Firefox and accept the security exception again.

Firefox apparently keeps track of security exceptions by host and port, and not just by host as Chrome seems to do.
