cannot log out of https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/

There it is in a nutshell.

I tried to en- and disable javascript, but that doesn't seem to make any difference.

Whenever I press the "Logout" button (to the right of the PM button in the top menu bar), it reloads the page but doesn't log me out.
Using palemoon 27.4.1 (64-bit) with these addons:

BUT!
just now i found a sort of workaround:
I opened the forum index in a new tab (right-click "Index" => open in new tab), pressed logout and it logged me out!

I'm using the "Crunchbang" style.

PS:
The forum doesn't have a dedicated section for internal issues?

Does palemoon have a "safe" mode in which you can start the program without the addons running?

I presume that is stevep's package?

Can you reproduce this issue with firefox-esr (from the Debian repositories)?

Re: cannot log out of https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/

ohnonot, thanks for the report.

FluxBB does  not use JavaScript for logon/logout actions, so that should not make a difference. Note that that the Logout link is just a link to login.php?action=out with the CSRF token and UID passed as part of the query string and not via cookie. It might be a caching issue, though I have never observed this problem in Chromium, Firefox, or Chrome myself (over several years). It might be a Palemoon-specific regression or addon interference.

If the issue persists, please open the network inspector/devtools if Palemoon does have that (that is, a log of all the requests the browser makes) and then click the logout button to reproduce the issue, and then post the log here. I will try to reproduce using Palemoon tonight myself. Please also check if the issue is still reproducible with all addons disabled/a clean profile.

Can't reproduce using Palemoon with no addons in version 27.4.1 64bit.

Using palemoon 27.4.1 64-bit with one addon:
uBlock Origin

and "Logout" works just fine.

Might it be an issue with the redirect?

Re: cannot log out of https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/

Yesterday, straight after posting, I tried it with palemoon with addons disabled (yes, it does have that feature, and no, not stevep's package, but compiled from the AUR).
i'm befuddled now, i think it worked straight away, then I wanted to post that here, and then it didn't work again, the I restarted palemoon normally, and it worked... confusing, inconsistent until I find any sort of pattern in it.
I will try to troubleshoot systematically (gonna have to take notes) with different browsers etc.

to clarify:

doesn't work: I press Logout, the page reloads but I'm not logged out: It's still the dark crunchbang theme, I'm still logged in, can access personal info etc.

works: I press Logout, the page reloads to the whitish default theme with an appropriate message (you have been logged out). And I am indeed logged out, I get permission denied errors when trying to access personal info or reload another tab with e.g. some post I was editing at the time.

The only idea I have right now is that it has to do with multiple tabs; I twend to open each thread I want to read in a separate tab first, so each forum session means opening quite many tabs, and closing them again one by one.
It might well be palemoon-related.

Can you verify that the pages you're still 'accessing' are not coming from the cache? (force-refresh or similar).

If the pages are not coming out of the cache, it would be very interesting to see the request log I requested earlier in this thread. Session handling is of course done on the server side, meaning that if you're still logged in after clicking the link, the logout request never reached the server, and the session token never got invalidated.

I can take a good look at the web server logs, but I can't promise I'll find something on our side.

If you have multiple instances open, then my guess would be you won't be fully logged out til you drop session ccokies for each login. Session cookies tend to be unique identifiers tied to a specific login.

Re: cannot log out of https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/

Or, maybe, multiple tabs for different threads in the Bunsen forums?

Re: cannot log out of https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/

no multiple instances, i'm sure.
but it could be a hint in the right direction, idk.

no multiple tabs either; the tab with the index page is always the last one.

will try. obviously i have to log out for that (or at least try)...

i put some notes here - check it out in an hour or so.

i can say that upon pressing the logout button, i first see some url with a long token appended, then it goes to the default index.php.

i have also installed firefox-esr-bin and will try with that (and add it to the notes).
