One of my users reports an CSRF verification failed. Request aborted. Error

  • This error appears only in firefox, also when he is using an private Firefox Window (no old cookies)
  • This happens alway when he is trying to log in with his username and password

How to resolve this issue?

I can not reproduce this problem. I can log in with all browsers, but some users not..

Which version of Askbot do you run? Did you make any custom modifications on the code? Did you already try `DEBUG=True` as the message suggests?

My version is 0.7.48. The Problem is that I don't get this message, but some of my users.

I got this too on, but I didn't try with NoScript disabled.

Askbot is based on django, which features explicit CSRF protection.

Please read djangos documentation on that topic and have a look at the askbot source code corresponding to your installed version of askbot.

Also try to set DEBUG=True in your and try to trigger that situation from one of the affected browsers afterwards.
