Parsoid gives VisualEditor insecure content when using HTTPS (should use protocol-relative URLs)
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

When I go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Trevor_Parscal and click the "visualeditor" tab, my browser console says:


The page at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Trevor_Parscal displayed insecure content from http://en.wikipedia.org/w?title=Special:FilePath/California_Bay_Area_county_map.svg&width=.

Consequently, the pretty green lock icon in Google Chrome turns yellow.


Version: unspecified
Severity: major

Upstream Parsoid bug: bug 42976

Tagging with deploy-train cycle.

I am getting this issue, on the test page referenced in the bug and others, again. The URLs do not contain Special:FilePath anymore, so perhaps something was changed about how images are handled that introduced a regression? Reopening this bug since the issue appears to be essentially the same.

This seems to have been unfixed in production.

Strangely, parsoid.wmflabs.org is now giving me https URLs for images.

This seems to have been unfixed in production.

Specifically, Parsoid is now once again returning http:// URLs for images (except in labs, where it returns https:// URLs). MZ submitted a fix in December to make these URLs protocol-relative, but this seems to have been unfixed somehow.

Perhaps the repository URL is being grabbed from the API? That would explain why it's now a fully qualified URL, and it might explain the difference between labs and production.

Per Roan's comments, moving to Parsoid so they can fix.

We used to use a special page redirect hack, but now use the API to properly retrieve image information including the path. So the new code needs to implement some similar protocol-relative massaging for image URLs, at least for the domains we know to support both http and https.

The fix will go out with tomorrow's Parsoid deployment.
