Public bug reported:
When talking to an hostname consisting of a single letter, Firefox
3.6.18 does not set cookie. Previous version did fine, as well as other
browser such as chromium.
How to reproduce:
sudo apt-get install lighttpd
sudo lighttpd-enable-mod cgi
sudo vim /etc/hosts
make 'a' go to 127.0.0.1 as in:
root at machine:/var/www# head -n1 /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1 localhost a
Then simply install the attached python cgi and go to it in
firefox-3.6.18. In our tests it never set a cookie. When testing with
Chrome, it sets the cookie fine.
root at machine:/var/www# lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS
root at machine:/var/www# apt-cache policy firefox
I expected my cgi script to print something like:
The returned cookie string was "foo=1308946645.14"
First visit or cookies disabled.
