Transifex

Postby ilu » 15 Mar 2016 20:46

Just in case somebody else has this stupid problem:

For several month I haven't been able to log into transifex. Error message: Forbidden (403) CSRF verification failed. Request aborted.
I knew it had something to do with referers but those were enabled (as were cookies) and I couldn't figure out why it did not work.
Today I got a spontaneous inspiration:
For sites that I regularly login to I usually leave a tab with the login screen open. This works everywhere but not on Transifex. You need to first visit their homepage before you can use the login-screen. No homepage, no referer - oh well ... :facepalm:

I have this bookmark: https://www.transifex.com/solydxk/
and I'm automatically logged in (Firefox).

With your link you get a valid referer. I used https://www.transifex.com/signin/?next=/solydxk/ and this leads to the CSRF error.

I'm just posting this because there are a lot of threads on the net about random CSRF errors and I could nowhere find an answer as to why exactly. I suspect a lot of them inadvertently did the same as me although of course I don't know for sure.
