Alfresco 5.0 enterprise, Ubuntu/GNOME, Firefox 44.0.2

Attachments: PNG File Screenshot 20160510 - empty share dashboard page.png     PNG File Screenshot 20160510 - no languages set in firefox.png    
Bug Priority:
Category 1


In Firefox you are able to remove all languages in the preferences menu under the content-tab
(when no languages are present it defaults to english, in my case)

When all languages are removed, the share dashboard page (after login) will never show.
This is not the case with IE11, in chrome you cannot remove all languages.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Login using FireFox
  2. Settings > Content > Languages
  3. Remove all languages
  4. Refresh Alfresco

Expected: Alfresco loads english language when browser has no languages
Actual: Blank page loads

Thank you for reporting this strange behavior. We consider this to be a bug with Firefox, not with Alfresco.

It is good to have it documented in this issue.

On second thought, Alfresco should do something more intelligent then serving a blank page. Perhaps default to the server locale?

We'll send this to the Share team for them to look at it.

Greg verified that this is reproducible on Enterprise 5.1.0.

Edge case only with Firefox, this has not been prioritised for the engineering backlog
