BIG-IP FPS(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
14.1.0, 14.1.0.1, 14.1.0.2

Opened: Apr 18, 2018
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

Using Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) with the Edge browser to navigate between views does not work if the view names differ only in case (e.g., view test1 and view TEST1). IE/Edge does not recognize it as changing views, so WebSafe will keep working with the first view configuration.

Impact

WebSafe does not change views. This occurs because the IE browser hash is case-insensitive. So in the case of the test1/TEST1 example, when you navigate to test1, the configuration loads and you see the message in the console, but when you navigate from test1 to TEST1 (or tEst1, tEST1, etc.), the browser does not do anything and does not change the page, so WebSafe cannot load the TEST1 config.

Conditions

1. IE/Edge browser. 2. Have views with same name but different case.

Workaround

Use another browser, such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.

Fix Information

None
