Firefox isn't redirecting when it gets a HTTP 302

After filling out a simple form on this page: https://bitdango.com/register/email

The page should redirect to this page: https://bitdango.com/register/verify

Instead nothing happens. The browser simply doesn't redirect.

I have tried both relative and fully qualified URLs in the "Location" property of the redirect, neither are working.

Why is the browser not redirecting? Users are starting to use Chrome instead of Firefox because of this.

Glad you resolved the problem. More on SPDY at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SPDY .

To avoid other people encountering this problem, I suggest you report this as a bug through https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/.

For info, it just worked for me, redirecting me to the relevant page. I'm using Firefox 26.0.

It seems to work half the time. It is not consistent, which is making it hard to troubleshoot.

Half the time the call to: https://bitdango.com/register/verify

works and the other 1/2 the time it doesn't work. When it doesn't work no response is shown in the "Network" section of the debug tool. When it does work I see a HTTP Header that I wonder about:

X-Firefox-Spdy: "2"

Not sure if that has anything to do with it?

Have you tried using an external network debug tool such as the free Fiddler? That will allow you to see the HTTP traffic associated with your browsing and may shed some light.

So I changed the network.http.spdy.enabled from true to false. Now redirects are working as expected.

Need to learn more about what SPDY is and expectations for working with websites, etc...

Additional info: although the redirection worked for me, I have network.http.spdy.enabled set to true.

Full settings:

network.http.spdy.allow-push;true network.http.spdy.chunk-size;4096 network.http.spdy.coalesce-hostnames;true network.http.spdy.enabled;true network.http.spdy.enabled.v2;true network.http.spdy.enabled.v3;true network.http.spdy.persistent-settings;false network.http.spdy.ping-threshold;58 network.http.spdy.ping-timeout;8 network.http.spdy.push-allowance;65536 network.http.spdy.send-buffer-size;131072 network.http.spdy.timeout;180

I get this response headers:

HTTP/1.1 302 OK
Server: nginx
Date: Mon, 30 Dec 2013 14:03:17 GMT
Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8
Content-Length: 133
Cache-Control: private
Location: /register/verify
X-Firefox-Spdy: 2

Note that the X-Firefox-Spdy header is an entry that is generated by Firefox to show whether SPDY and which version was used, so it isn't send by the server.

Is it possible that there was another problem (e.g. the CAPTCHA) that prevented the redirect.
