The top-bar site-switcher doesn't work when we are using https://stackexchange.com/ but works when using http://stackexchange.com/.

Clicking the site-switcher over https instead refreshes the page. Using individual sites over https doesn't exhibit this problem.

This problem happens when using Firefox 28 on Ubuntu 14.04. It seems to work as expected on Chrome 34.

  • Sounds like it may be a setting in firefox. Perhaps this would be a good question for SuperUser – Raystafarian Apr 12 '14 at 12:33

    The page loads over https://; just the site-switcher doesn't work. Hence, it's a bug-report at MSE. Things should work out-of-the-box (I know ssl is not officially supported here, but we are still free to report bugs). However, if you think that this makes a good question for Super User, feel free to post a new one there :) – Aditya Apr 12 '14 at 12:43

    @Aditya Are you seeing any issues with javascript loading in Firefox? We're not doing anything different per-browser here, obviously, so since it works in Chrome it should certainly be working in FF as well. Are any other aspects of the page, such as the real-time loading of example questions, broken in FF? – Adam Lear Apr 12 '14 at 15:12
  • @AnnaLear Everything else looks to be okay... Just when I click the site-switcher from any page of stackexchange.com domain over https://, the page reloads. Oh, and the Inbox and Achievements don't function as well. Clicking them doesn't trigger a refresh, but changes the url to https://stackexchange.com/#. Link to my profile, meta and about on the top-bar work as expected. Let me know if you need any kind of logs. I would be happy to help. – Aditya Apr 12 '14 at 16:04
  • @Aditya I'm out of the office till Wednesday, but I'm going to try to repro this next week. Thanks for the report! – Adam Lear Apr 12 '14 at 23:08
  • @AnnaLear The bug seems to have been fixed during MSO/MSE Split... It can be marked as status-completed :-) – Aditya Apr 20 '14 at 18:27
  • @Aditya It got fixed as part of fixing this and is unrelated to the split, but either way... status-completed. :) – Adam Lear Apr 20 '14 at 20:55
  • @AnnaLear I still have this problem on Chrome Version 37.0.2062.124 m (64-bit). XMLHttpRequest cannot load https://stackexchange.com/topbar/site-switcher?_=1411635691827. No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'http://stackexchange.com' is therefore not allowed access. search?q=42:1 – 0xMB Sep 25 '14 at 9:08
