Has anyone run into issues with NetMRI and Firefox 4.0 so far? Have the Infoblox team done much testing with it?
I have not run into anything myself. Not sure if it was the 22.214.171.124 patch or FF4, but it seems to be "faster" right now.
I've been using it for a week or so and it seems to function fine in all areas I've been in.
The forthcoming release adds official support for Chrome and Safari, however I dont think it officially adds in FF4 yet. That is going to be slated for a subsequent release, and is actively being looked at.
For the time being, I'd say its the same status as Safari is currently, should be fine in 95% of the UI, but may have a hiccup or two.
That being said, I've not come across one yet.
FF4 is working ok for me so far. NetMRI does warn that it is an unsupported browser and lists supported ones as including "Firefox 3.0 or later". Ummm....
Yeah, when FF4 wasnt out yet, that was an appropirate statement :)
We should be updating this to more accurate wording in the next version per a UI bug that has been filed for this.
I can confirm that v6.4 corrects the browser deficiencies. FF 10.0.4 ESR works fine including the auto-refresh page such as device logs. And IE 7 & 8 now continue past the login page, instead of perpetually cycling back to login after a successful authentication.
BTW, if anyone isn't familiar with the Firefox Extended Support Release, it's ideal for apps like production net management tools where both the app and the browser need stability to play nice together.http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/faq/
Eli, the issue with perpetual login for IE8 is back and for numerous users. Clearing cache and cookies have no effect. FF10.0.4 ESR is still working ok. Chrome works ok.
Thanks for testing and confirming. FWIW, FF12 also seems to be working well and the auto-refresh is looking good.
You mentioned the double-login issue being resolved, and though it is for the most part, there are still some circumstances where you may have to perform a double login (from what it looks like, first time accessing it in the morning after leaving a session to timeout overnight or similar), but thats being tracked as a bug internally, and hope to have it fixed soon.
Just a heads up that you might see it. Good info on the FF ESR as well, thanks for the link.
Just to clarify, the problem we experienced with IE was not a double login -- it was a perpetual login. It's the same behavior you get if a browser blocks session cookies so the app never concludes that the auth step already succeeded. We verified that the IE setting permitted session cookies, and even explicitly allowed the NetMRI as a site, but it still cycled back.
