#2866 closed Bug (invalid)

Transmission login box will not appear in Google Chrome

Reported by: sakos Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 1.80
Severity: Normal Keywords: needinfo chrome login


I am unable to connect to the Transmission web interface when using Google Chrome after rpc authentication was switched on. Chrome tries to open the web page, but login box does not appear and timeout happens. Reloading the page does not resolve the issue. I have tested the web interface with Firefox 3.5.6 and it works fine, login box appears immediately.

I'm not sure if this is transmission or Google Chrome fault.

I'm not seeing this bug. This is working fine for me with Transmission 1.83 and Chrome (Official Build 34537).

What version of Chrome are you using? Do you have any other details on how to make this issue appear?

another tester in 5.0.319.0 (38290) Ubuntu reports the password prompt works there, too.

another tester on OS X 10.5.8 reports the password prompt works correctly in Chrome

Curiouser and curiouser. One of the #transmission irc users was able to consistently reproduce this and even made a video of it @ <>

By following the steps in the video -- typing in the web ui's address in the URL addressbar, entering in the user/pass, hitting back, retyping the web ui's address to load the page a second time, exiting chrome, reloading chrome, and typing the web ui's address a third time -- three testers were able to trigger the same bug.

However, even following these steps, everything worked fine in Firefox 3.5.6 and in the Firefox pre-3.7 nightly builds.

This is looking more like a Chrome bug. Given that it's reproducible and there's a video available, I think you should report this bug upstairs to the Chrome team.


Closing this bug as "invalid" because our trac doesn't have a "nottransmission" option.

I can confirm this (against T 1.83). In Google Chrome ( I get the same issues explained in the previous post by charles; first time works fine, restarting chrome, I get the error message. Deleting the log (Ctrl+H) for that day, however, makes it work again.

I have reported to Chrome team. No response yet.
