Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] [wtp-dev] Website links to wiki are not working with HTTP

This behavior of Chrome was announced.

https://security.googleblog.com/2016/09/moving-towards-more-secure-web.html

Also of note, on Jan 1, 2017, all SHA0 and SHA1 ciphers and certificates are now rejected by Chrome (as well as Firefox, Edge, amongst others).

Kaloyan,Â

Thanks for confirming. This seems a large-scale issue with Chrome and HTTP vs HTTPS.Â

Note: I also observed that the HTTP links are working in incognito mode.Â

All,Â

I'm forwarding this e-mail to the cross-project mailing list as this issue should impact many projects.

Indeed, the Eclipse wiki links are not working on Chrome with HTTP, but they work only with HTTPS.

The reason is Chrome considers insecure the HTTP connection to wiki.eclipse.org

I think we should report a bug against Eclipse wiki, perhaps depends on the wiki server configuration.

For the Eclipse WTP Website, a short term solution is changing all the links from HTTP to HTTPS, like I did here:Âhttps://git.eclipse.org/r/#/c/88396/

Hi Patrik,

The problem happens to me too with Chrome on Fedora, but not with Firefox on Fedora.

The problem happens with ANY wiki page at wiki.eclipse.org, so it is not specific just to the WTP wiki pages.

It seems to be an infrastructure issue - something is not perfect with the http -> https redirection.

Hi All,Â

With Google Chrome on Windows, all the HTTP links from the Eclipse WebTools pages are not working. Only the HTTPS links are working.

As an example:
OpenÂhttps://eclipse.org/webtools/jsdt/Âand click on the "Wiki' link. This opens a blank page.

Note:
when I open the pageÂhttp://wiki.eclipse.org/JSDTÂI see a blank page.
I can see the wiki page only using the HTTPS protocol.Â

Details.
I verified this problem occurs only in Chrome for windows.Â
The problem does not happen in Chrome for Mac.
The problem does not happen in Firefox and Explorer for Windows.Â

As Chrome for windows probably represents the 33% of website users, I write to show the issue and ask: How many other Chrome users on windows (or Linux) have the same problem?
