Example 404 (1.16 KB, text/html)
2010-11-02 04:15 UTC, Kevin Norris

Description Kevin Norris 2010-11-02 04:15:22 UTC
Created attachment 7777 [details]
Example 404

See attachment.  It is completely unmodified (via Firefox's download webpage function).  I can't reliably reproduce the issue, and it is not specific to a particular title.  I have, however, observed it many times.  The really strange thing is that this appears to be particular to one client computer...  I think the headers may be... unusual, so I added a URL for an extension description which I think may be responsible.  It's on the client experiencing the problem.  I am reporting it here, however, because these 404's simply should not be occurring and are at least partially server side by definition.  Also, the redirect target is breaking things.

NOTE: There are a number of other extensions on the client, but I assumed it was this one because it redirects HTTP to HTTPS where possible, and I think it might be sending bogus headers or something...  Really, though, this is a server issue, so I haven't done thorough client-side testing (yet).

This may be a general MediaWiki bug... I reported it here because it may be a low-level (below MW) problem with the secure server.

Additional note: The attachment contains a meta redirect, which will probably be annoying (and is bad design style!  Why did MW or a lower level thing produce this?).

Comment 3 Kevin Norris 2010-11-02 17:12:00 UTC
I'm not sure if this is the same bug... This bug is transient and irregular, but the other bug is specific to one URL.

Not changing it back because I'm not sure if I should.
