This forum crashes when visited with Opera while logged in RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • When I visit this link in Opera 11 I get the typical ASP.NET "Server Error in '/Forums' Application." error page that you get when you didn't catch an exception...

    When I'm not logged in, or use another browser it works.

    Please fix this. (If MS finally stopped doing browser sniffing in their websites this probably wouldn't be an issue in the first place btw...)

  • Hi ,

    Thank you for your post! You may have running through a temporary error. We have verified this issue and forums are working fine with the opera browser.

    So please try again or check the settings on your system.

    Have a great day!

  • Hmm, it doesn't look so fixed... This very page, and also are giving me the same error again. Again only in Opera while logged in... Why do you use server side browser sniffing? :(

  • I'm also getting the same error with the latest version of Opera (11.01).  I have found a workaround is to hit F12 and select "Edit Site Preferences" and change the cookie settings from "Accept all cookies" to "Accept cookies only from the site I visit".

  • I have also been experiencing this issue, but while preparing this report have discovered that clearing cookies (Settings/Privacy/Clear cookies) makes a difference.

     The key point seems to be the fact that the user is also logged into forums on another system while trying to access the forums via Opera.

    In my case, when I used Opera Mobile 10 with Opera Turbo=Off, Opera Link=Off, Mobile View=Off, with cache cleared before access (but not cleared cookies), I had the Server Error message.  When I also cleared my cookies, the forums became accessible again, even as I write this on another system.

    I suspect that the problem is due to 'legacy' cookies associated with a previous version of the Forums which the current version doesn't understand.

    Answering policy: see profile.

  • Same case there (opera 11.01). Clearing the cookies helps, but only for short period of time.

  • Hey Shrikant,

    could you look into this? It's STILL an issue....

    Hi ,


    I have verified this issue and i am not getting any error. I installed Opera 11.1 and I am posting this reply through Opera 11.01 browser.

    I have not changed or customized any settings in opera.


    Have a great day!

  • So you did NOT verify it?

    Well it still happens for me:

    Some suggested that it only happens when you are logged in other services.

    Can't you just log the request that come from my user?
