ABE blocks loading of page - is it normal?

Post by access2godzilla » Mon Jan 20, 2014 10:38 am

While fiddling with ABE, I found one interesting feature: it can block pages from being loaded!

I can do something like:

Code: Select all

Site .example.com

... and when I type .example.com in the address bar (or click a link) I get:

Code: Select all

Request { GET http://example.com <<< https://www.google.com/search?q=example.com&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&gws_rd=cr&ei=1PrcUorcNYq4iQeuxIDgDg - 6 } Deny filtered by ABE <.example.com> DENY

Request { GET http://example.com <<< chrome://browser/content/browser.xul -6 } Deny filtered by ABE <.example.com> DENY

Is this normal? Although I hope it's not a bug, since it's got immense potential!

Of course it's normal.
Otherwise all it would get to slip past CSRF protection would be a meta refresh or a redirection.
