website issue in Firefox

Posted on 2016-11-09
Last Modified: 2016-11-22
A website that I have working on my local machine inside both  IE and Chrome does not work in Firefox 49.0.2.

The site is under development and is not accessible to the public yet so I cannot provide a link.  For now I am focusing on browser configuration issues, as changing those in IE and Chrome has apparently helped.  But the same changes in Firefox do not seem to make any difference (allowing cookies).

I ran the Dev Tools and looked at the console log:

TokenManager.redirectForToken error: Network error)oidc-token-manager.min.js:4:1777

Error: Network error)oidc-token-manager.min.js:2:1422

Not sure how to fix this problem.

That is correct.

Hard to diagnose without access to the source code, but lets try.
You test the pages locally. Does it mean that you don't have a local web server? This looks like an error related to Angular, which means that you have some AJAX calls, and browsers do not in general like to do AJAX from local files.
Try to run a local instance of Apache/IIS/whatever web server you can and see if that help.

Up to this point I've been running "nodemon".

It makes no difference in the problem.

Nodemon has nothing to do with it, but my answer was not 100% clear.
So just in case you did not do it yet - Start a local web server, put your html app on it, and access it via http://localhost/something..  rather than file://something..

And don't forget CORS headers, too.

To my knowledge I've never tried to access the web application via file:// I've always had the web server serve-it-up.

What is a CORS Header?

So CORS = Cross Origin Resource Sharing.

But why would Chrome and IE be okay and Firefox would need CORS?

It turned-out to be a certificate issue.
