Since upgrading from Firefox 17.0.1 to 18, my ftp web raw access log no longer loads into browser. What changed?

Posted

One of my bookmarks is and has been a link to log into my website's raw access log, using my cpanel password and user account in the URL. This has always worked until tonight, when I upgraded from Firefox 17.0.1 to 18.0. Now, the page where the ftp access log used to load only shows the "Index of" directory structure of the website, not the access log.

Downgrading to version 17.0.1 lets the ftp page display again. Is there some security setting I can tweak to allow Firefox 18 to once again display a password protected, URL encoded ftp page?

The ftp access log displays properly in Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and the previous version 17 of Firefox.

Question owner

I have been experimenting with Firefox 18 and its difficulty displaying my ftp web stats. It seems that it is sometimes possible to trick Firefox 18 into displaying my access log by first changing the tab to Google's home search page. Then I close Firefox, which also clears the cache (an option I set under Privacy). When I re-open Firefox the Google search page is the first one to open. I immediately click on the saved bookmark for my ftp access log and 50% of the time it does actually load. Some of the other times I have to keep hitting the refresh button to load the page.

This is a frustrating problem that was not present in version 17.x. The following is an example of the link I am opening via a button on my Bookmarks bar.

ftp://hosting-user-account_logs+my-website%2Ecom:cpanel-password@ftp.my-website.com/my-website.com
