Comment 1 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2011-10-16 02:57:56 UTC
Might have to do with Bugzilla update to 4.0.2?

- Reported with Bug Submission Assistant -
Comment 2 Loic Dachary 2011-10-18 07:00:45 UTC
I installed a placeholder in place of the bug submission assistant to not confuse people. I have tried a few times and had one failure. Examining the iframe content, I found an empty <body></body>. But I also created a few bugs successfully. Researching the source of the problem.
Comment 3 Loic Dachary 2011-10-18 07:31:23 UTC
It always happen when the bug submission assistant is within the get-help/bug iframe. And never when used directly thru https://bugassistant.libreoffice.org/libreoffice/bug/bug.html
Comment 4 Loic Dachary 2011-10-18 07:56:34 UTC
I managed to reproduce the problem in http://dachary.org/loic/libreoffice/bug/frame.html which contains an iframe to https://freedesktop.dachary.org/libreoffice/bug/bug.html
Comment 5 Loic Dachary 2011-10-18 08:28:43 UTC
It is a same origin policy bug that does not prevent the submission of the bug but prevents feedback to happen in the end.
Comment 6 Loic Dachary 2011-10-18 09:34:55 UTC
Setting the document.domain as suggested here:


won't work because it cannot be done in bugzilla itself.
Comment 7 Loic Dachary 2011-10-18 09:49:39 UTC
I think the only viable solution is to ProxyPass https://libreoffice.org/bugassistant/ to http://bugassistant.libreoffice.org/ and replace the iframe so that it uses https://libreoffice.org/bugassistant/

More information about the solution at http://dachary.org/?p=989
I will ask the system administrators to make the modifications.
Comment 9 Loic Dachary 2011-10-21 14:54:43 UTC
The modification were made and https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/bug/ is back online.
