There seems to be a bug in internet explorer 5 where a redirect
causes the session to be lost.
A controller says…
if @session[:user] = User.authenticate(@params
return redirect_to(:action=>‘send_confirmation’) unless
flash[:notice] = "Welcome back, " + @session
flash.now[:notice] = “Sorry, we couldn’t log you in
with that information. Please check your details and try again.”
@login = @params[:user_login]
And it works fine with all browsers but MSIE 5.5sp2 where the user IS
logged in but on arrival at the redirect page the session is lost.
You can see this bug in action if you try to use the wretched browser
to log into a tadalist (for example).
Can anyone suggest a work around to allow 5.5 users to keep workable
sessions with a Rails app?
