I hate lying customers.

Today a customer opened a support ticket related to his website account. Apparently he is losing his session right after the login success.
I've debugged everything, checked all logs and couldn't reproduce it.
I know every bit of business logic on the website by heart.
The only explanation could be that his browser either doesn't allow cookies or expires them after page change.
So I asked him to check.
"Yes, cookies are allowed in my browser" he wrote.
Well... fuck me... I will change the code to put the session ID in the URL as well. If it works - and I'm 100% sure of that - I will personally mail him a collection of the finest turds.

    Could it be the new same site setting along with secure cookies.

    We have had some problems with browsers upping the security and denying session cookies thag worked just s fee months ago.

    I think we have it resolved by now but involved updating some framework packages and installing a patch

    Sounds like the same-site cookie issue to me.

    Had the same problem earlier this year.

    Problem fixed.
    Turns out it was a completely different issue but the customer mixed up stuff...
