Firefox Version Wrong With Request.Browser.Version?
I'm try to get my site to detect what browser someone is using to ensure they're using one that is compliant with our site. Everything works, except Firefox seems to post the wrong version in the Request.Browser variables.I'm on Firefox 3.6.10, but Request.Browser shows Mozilla It's correct in the HTTP_USER_AGENT string:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20100914 YFF35 Firefox/3.6.10 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729)

Is there a way to detect it better without having to parse through the HTTP_USER_AGENT string?

Web Forms :: How To Detect The SSL Version Enabled In Web Browser
Does anyone know if it is possible todetect the SSL version that is enabled by a web browser, either using or javascript? Perferrably using Is this possible? I do not want to detect onlyif SSL is enabled. But I want to detect the actual version of SSL enabled on the visiting web browser. Is this possible?

If it is not possible, does anyone know what error page (status code, number, example: 500) IIS will throw when this someone tries to connect to a site that has SSL 3 enstalled, but their browser only supports SSL 2?

Configuration :: Client Browser Using Cached Files Instead Of Updated Version After Deployment
We have an ASP.NET web application and it's hosted using IIS 6.0, in the app we have these several javascript and css files located in a folder, and for performance sake (according to YSlow) we set the folder content expiration header to 1 year. Everything worked just fine until recently when we deployed the latest build to the server, in which we had made some changes to those javascript and css files. For some reason after the deployment some of our end users don't see the latest changes when they connected to the app, even after they cleared the cache in IE. We have also restarted the IIS on the server and the problem still remained. When I went into the IE Temporary Internet Files folder on one of these machines I saw the files were still the older version and not the latest one, I had to manually delete the files from the Temporary Internet Files folder then they were able to see the latest changes. I'm baffled by this, how come only some users who couldn't see the changes but some others do (without having to do anything by the way), and how do I make sure that for future releases we won't have to do anything like what did (manually deleting the cached files)? For now I disabled the Content Expiration option in IIS for these files but I would like to know if there is a way that I can enable the content expiration (to help performance) but at the same time making sure when the files are updated, the latest version will be used for the end user (instead of the cached version)?

Web Forms :: How To Make A Server Button Invisible But Still Function In Any Type Of Browser
I have a Save button in my page.When user clicks it, the program will do some checking.If it passes the test, the record will be saved.If not,it will fire another button'sonclick event. The 2nd button has been set withboth height and width = 0 and ithas an extenderAJAX ModalPopup.

Here is the code for the1st button (the visible Save button):


Problem is that setting height and width = 0 for the 2nd button can make the button invisible in IE. But it shows a very small button in Chrome. If I set the 2nd button to invisible, it simply won't function at all.

Web Forms :: Stop Users Users Using The Browser Back Button And Potentially Submitting An Old Version
I need to stop users users using the browser back button and potentially submitting an old version of a form.

I'm storing a guid in a session variable and also writing the value to a hidden form field and then checking the session value against the hidden field value if a user does try to navigate back and submit an old form.

If the form is submitted and the user wants to complete a new copy of the form then a new guid is generated both to the session and to the hidden form field. Now, if the user decides to hit the back button a few times to get the old form and tries to submit it again, the page checks the current guid in session against the guid stored in the form field and it finds a mismatch and prevents the form being submitted.

This works as expected in Chrome and Firefox, but in IE6, when the user hits the back button to view the old form, the new guid value appears in the hidden field of the old form! This means the user can submit the old form again, which we definitely do not want.

File Browser Control To Replace - Input Type
I'm working on an ASP.NET web application for our corporate intranet users. I have a form where a user should provide a path to the file on the local network (something like "localServersomeFoldersomeFile.ext") without uploading the actual file. The issue is that users don't want to type the whole file path and want to use some kind of visual browse dialog.

The standard HTML <input type=file> element allows to browse for a file, but most of the browsers (except for IE) don't allow to access file's full path, so I think it should be done by some external component like Silverlight, Flash, Java applet etc. I tried to do it with Silverlight, but I'm getting a SecurityException when trying to access file's full path using Silverlight's OpenFileDialog class. This java applet [URL] seems to do something similar to what I'm looking for, but it's focused on uploading files - I only need to be able to get file's full path and pass it to the server as a string.

Prevent Multiple User Logging Into The Same Domain Using The Same Browser?
So its a ASP.NET problem where two users using the same machine, same browser:

User 1 logs in the domain.
User 1 changes some data without saving it.
User 2 logs in the domain in a separate tab.
User 1 switches back to his tab and saves the data.
User 1 actually saved the data into User 2!!

This is caused by the following mechanism:

Different tabs in the same browser seems to share the same session id.

We are storing user auth in cookie and the cookie is shared between tabs (same domain)

Therefore, when User 1 request to save, it is recognized as User 2 since the cookie has been updated to User 2.

So I'm wondering if there's any other methods to prevent this from happening, other than:

1. Use cookieless session so the session is embedded in uri.
2. Always include a hidden field in page to indicate which user owns the page.
