Installation Assistant sends user into an endless loop when JS is disabled (Install from Debian)
Originally created by @intrigeri on #11460 (Redmine)
- Disable JS globally
- Navigate the assistant until https://tails.boum.org/install/debian/usb/
Then I’m given two similar, but slightly different, instructions for the next step, both have the same problematic result:
- “Copy and paste this link in Firefox or Tor Browser: ”$“:https://tails.boum.org/install/debian/usb/”, but if I do that I end up on the same page (of course, that’s the URL I’m already on)
- A button that states “I’m already in Firefox 38.0.1+ or Tor Browser 5+”), that points to https://tails.boum.org/install/debian/usb/?override=firefox. If I click this button, I end up on a very similar page, that gives me the same choice as previously.
In both cases, I have no clue how to go on. I’m sorry if I misunderstood the instructions I was given.
I didn’t test other scenarios to see if the downgrade to no JS was more graceful elsewhere, but given that this common one is broken, I would humbly suggest that you folks try the others as well, just to be on the safe side :)
