Hi, I'm having problems to login in horde with at least chrome,
chromium and explorer.

Browsers versions:
Firefox: 11.0   : OK
Chrome: 18.0.1025.162   : FAIL
Chromium: 18.0.1025.151  : FAIL
Internet Explorer :     : FAIL

First I think it was an issue with ssl certs and vhosts but now I'm
testing without SSL and the problem persist.

So, I disable everything related to Sessions cache, coming back to
defaults, because i had configured Memcache as

Try deconfigure everything related to page compression with no success.

Also try with this:

     $conf['session']['use_only_cookies'] = true and
$conf['session']['use_only_cookies'] = false

     $conf['cookie']['domain'] = $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] and
$conf['cookie']['domain'] ''

and nothing change.

I'm using vhosts in apache with DocumentRoot /var/www/horde so
$conf['cookie']['path'] = '/'; is ok.

Looking more deeply into cookies i found that in chrome cookies
(auth_key and imp_key) weren't being generated so, login page takes 5
minutes to enter and when it does IMP fails.

Looking at HORDE logs:

         HORDE: [imp] FAILED LOGIN for xxxx at xxxxx (Horde user
xxxxx at xxxxx) [xxxxxx] to { [imap]} [pid 5991 on line 176
of "/var/www/horde/imp/lib/Auth.php"]

Dovecot Logs:

        auth(default): Info: ldap(xxxxx at xxxxx, Login
attempt with empty password
        auth(default): Info: client out: FAIL	10	user=xxxx at xxxxx

If I disable cookies in chrome it works but I have to login again to enter IMP.

The most strange thing is that i have not a clue why is working fine
with firefox and not with the rest of the browsers and that's very

PS: Android works fine too, in both modes (movile and see as computer)
