Yeah, would be one more to add to this (now old and rotten) list, since Jolla has postponed(denied?) importing old reports into this forum:

You should add at least SF version (maybe also device).
And this is hard to cross-check as not near to Stuggi :wink:

Edited, thanks for the reminder.
The Colibri system is hopefully not only implemented in Stuttgart. :wink: I have had such a thing in a city hall around Stuttgart, too. Now, I felt like using the time and reporting it. :slight_smile:

I have exactly the same problem in Austrian long distance trains operated by ÖBB. My first trouble is that the UI is simply confusing. This pop up on the bottom of the screen … What is it for? I thought I should click on any of the 2 lines, but they are not acive links/buttons. The only purpuse of this thing is to hide a part of the screen. Useful.

Then, I have a page similar to the one shown in the original post - different, ÖBB-branded layout of course. There’s a red button I’m supposed to click on in order to log in… And it does nothing.

I don’t know if ÖBB uses the same technical solution or a different one. I can just tell the effect is the same: No Wifi on the train. And we’re talking about rides of 8 hours or even longer.

Hi there!

My workaround is to close this window and check, if I am still connected to this wifi. Then I open the SFOS browser and try to open www.google.com. This usually redirects me to the landing page of the wifi again, but with working buttons.

I hope that this helps!

Actually, instead of opening any page that provides its content through httpS, I use http:///neverssl.com. Using an http-only page prevents me from warnings that the landing page is not SSL encrypted or that the certificate was wrong.

Indeed, http://neverssl.com is even my default page.
A lot of those ‘landing page’ even do not show up atball when you try https…

I have noticed similar issue when connecting to NetCologne Free Hotspots, the landing page loads but cannot tick a checkbox from the page. As mentioned before, either directly accessing the login page or using neverssl.com can be used as a workaround. My phone is XA2 (4.0.1.48).

Now, this problem appears on the FritzBox guest account, too.
