Description Samuel Mannehed cendio 2022-10-26 16:04:34 CEST
Some users might want to disable cookies in their browsers. These settings affect both "regular" cookies and JavaScript's localStorage.

Until bug 8014 is fixed, we encounter a JavaScript crash due to the localStorage being blocked.

However, even once that crash is fixed, Web Access won't work since we use a cookie for authentication. Temporarily disabling the code that requires localStorage results in the login failing with the following message shown to the user:

> Failed to connect to server

And this in tlwebaccess.log:

> 2022-10-26 16:00:42 ERROR tlwebaccess[3228208]: [::ffff:] Missing authorization cookie for user 'tester'
