The software I need to run is in xyz.co.uk/a and the licence prevents it from being moved. Historically it worked fine but now Firefox concatinates ...co.uk/a/a.php/signin to ...co.uka/a.php/signin by removing the first forward slash. Correcting it manually allows the signup screen to become visible but on signing in the same problem occurrs again. I don't know what is causing it but the bug is preventing me form using the software.

Any help appreciated

Firefox V42 O/S Windows 10 (recently installed) could this be the culprit?

Server not found Firefox can't find the server at co.uk.

Start from the main page of that web site, and work your way to the login page. You may have the wrong address.

I have checked the address and there is no mistake - Firefox acually removes the first forward slash.

What does the link and looks like that you use to create the full link?

Is there a base tag used to set the prefix that might be missing the trailing backslash?

Hi - enclosed is a copy of the bookmark Also enclosed is a copy of the URL that results from using the bookmark.

Of it'self the bookmark is not the main point. After correcting it and logging in the software creates a URL which is again concatinated in the same way - this means that I'll not be able to log in unless I can solve the problem.

Have you tried a re-direct site?

That is a problem with the server that redirects via a location response header (HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently ).

The server needs to fix this.

Bookmark and use the URL with the wwww prefix.
