Accessing WebGUI with Firefox mobile

  • Hi

    I've recently installed OMV 5 onto my Rock64 running Debian Buster using the script found on GitHub.

    I'm trying to access the WebGUI via my mobile phone on Firefox's mobile browser app, but every time I login it loops back to login screen. Weirdly I can access and log into the WebGUI with Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge perfectly fine, but Firefox is my preferred browser but it's not working. I never had any of these problems with OMV 4, however, Firefox mobile was using its old code at the time compared to the current version of Firefox which within the last couple of months the app has been redesigned so it could be that too. It's like something configured on the web server Firefox doesn't like.

    Has anyone else experience this?

  • Can not reproduce this on iOS with latest Firefox 29.2 but that does not say anything because it uses the iOS renderer under the hood. Can not see any issues with the desktop 83.0.

    Do you see a error message or anything else? Have you looked into /var/log/syslog, /var/log/nginx/openmediavault-webgui_error.log and /var/log/php7.3-fpm.log?
