Exception for hiding the referer header?

Description: We use JIRA Cloud at my place of employment. I received a new computer to replace my old one last week and can no longer access it, most likely due to a referrer header issue.

How to reproduce: When I go to our companies URL for login (which I cannot provide here), I can enter my login information, and then get this error message:

We couldn’t log you in. You may run into this issue when you use specific browsers or add-ons that hide the referer header for id.atlassian.com and other Atlassian sites. Check for these and then try logging in again.

I’ve looked all over the Brave browser settings but can’t find anything that would allow me to enter an exception for this. At this time I cannot access a critical system for my job.

Expected result: Ability to login

Brave Version( check About Brave): [
Version 1.16.72 Chromium: 86.0.4240.183 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Additional Information: Mac running Catalina 10.15.7

Hello @jfed

does turning the shield off help and if it did you tried to change the shield setting

hope that help and have a nice day

Could you please try Brave Nightly? We just merged a fix for Atlassian and would love to know whether it solves your problem.

I have the exact same problem,
Version: 1.16.72 Chromium: 86.0.4240.183 (Official Build) (64-bit)

I have tried nightly, version 1.18.46 Chromium: 87.0.4280.49 (Official Build) nightly (64-bit)

The problem is NOT fixed. I have tried disabling shields and private mode without success.

@justsomeone1 turning the shield off doesn’t help.

@fmarier I downloaded Brave Nightly, and it crashes on launch. I have a crash report, but it says that because I’m a new user I can’t upload it. Its also too long to paste in here.

here is the top data in the crash file. I’m not sure if its helpful.

try to DM fmarier with it click on his name then message

and hope they fix it soon and have a nice day all of you

@justsomeone1 thanks! that worked and I was able to send @fmarier the whole log file.

you very welcome @jfed

Thanks. I’ve passed the info on to my colleagues. Hopefully this will be resolved soon.

I assume the crash happens every time you try to open Nightly?

yup. Tried several times. Crashes immediately.

Edit: Its letting me upload logs now. See attached.Brave Browser Nightly_2020-11-11-095611_Jasons-MacBook-Pro copy.txt (81.0 KB)

as of this morning, it’s working. @fmarier Thanks for your help and getting the fix in so quickly!

Excellent. After checking with my colleagues they pointed out to a crash that was introduced by mistake in Nightly.

Just to confirm, the Atlassian problems you were running into are resolved in Nightly?

I’m actually not sure if Nightly is working on my machine or not. Atlassian now works in Brave LTS.

Which version of Brave did you get it working in? (you could copy here the first three lines of brave://version)
