VS2010 solution getting 403 Forbidden error
I've been developing an application using Visual Studio 2010. I've been using FireFox 24.0 as my browser running VS's IIS dev server. It was running fine before a company policy procedure meant I had to change my computer name.
After restarting, I get an error 403 Server Error in '/' Application.
I first checked my IIS settings and made sure the service was running. When that didn't help, I chose another browser by default. The application ran as normal which points to some security setting on FF. I cleared the cache and cookies and other things but nothing I've tried works.
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/29.0.1547.76 Safari/537.36
Does it work in other browsers, like IE or Chrome?
You can check the Web Console (Firefox/Tools > Web Developer;Ctrl+Shift+K) for errors and possibly the Browser/Error Console (Firefox/Tools > Web Developer;Ctrl+Shift+J) as well.
Which error message do you see?
Yes, it works in Chrome
Server Error in '/' Application. HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden. Version Information: ASP.NET Development Server 10.0.0.0
Dont know if it will help, but if you still have the problem then check if there is a manual proxy setup in Firefox.
