Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Sign in fail with html error 405

Mooooorrrgan ? Hi,

I’m struggling with eBay, since yesterday, I posted 4 messages. They stay evasive in their responses, avoiding to reply to the main question “What has changed ?”. Guess what they did ? They directed me to this post ! ! !
Besides, my loggin issues and password re-initialisations are part of the package, completely rotting my life with them.

I read again the web concerning the 405 error: https://airbrake.io/blog/http-errors/405-method-not-allowed
This site is providing some interesting tips for troubleshooting the issue.
From my understanding the server receives the request, understand it but decides it’s not compliant to the expected protocol. I
“Conversely, a 405 code response confirms that the requested resource is valid and exists, but the client has used an unacceptable HTTP method during the request.”
However, it seems that there are some 50 variants to formulate the request and that wouldn’t ease the process.

we really are starving in front this problem and eager to get it solved. Please !

You’re right. Today, the login process came back to normal.
eBay is quite inconsistent.

By the way, and it’s off topic, did someone remark that the icons are missing in the registed search page and in “my ebay: summary” ?
These pages have been randomly working for 2 or 3 months but, on eBay.fr, my ebay summary (mon eBay: récapitulatif") is still OK !

To zappram: I never log with my eBay user ID. That’s a while I had issues and abandonned it. Concerning the connection origin, yes, I’m connecting via my provider, or with my phone or with it as an access point for my computer. I suspected that eBay was blocking the account regarding these various IP addresses, For 7 days I connected through my provider only and I got 4 password change requests !

That said, since the moment the issues apperared with jBidwatcher, I noticed that the way to log into eBay is different than before. Now, there’s a first findow requesting the id with a button for accessing the second one for typing the password.
I noticed as well but for a longer while that the “stay connected” box is grayed.

Why not two cookies : A first one related to the ID and a second one (the “missed cookie”) for the password ?

Same here in France. Whatever the server is, I tried fr, es, it, co.uk, com, co.hk
I tried the version 2.99 pre5 as well.
I’ve had a lot of issues with eBay for 3 months, they regularly blocked my account several times a week, putting a captcha, which jbidwatcher failed against; even twice on the same day! I struggled with the customer service. I believe that these issues, including jbidwatcher ’s ones are tightly linked to a modification of their security policy.
Today, I noticed the following message on the status bar : Done getting the signin cookie for eBay.com [my_eBay_login_address: date, time].
Where is this cookie supposed to be recorded ?

when ? look at the configuration, sniping tab.
yes, the computer needs to be on and connected to Internet in order JBW is able to snipe.
Take a holiday or leave the computer on !

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / no more thumbnails ?

Thanks for the information.

2 weeks ago, I got back to ver 2.5.6.11 and the thumbnails came back. Switching to 2.99 pre-5, all the new ones disappear but those that were reloaded by ver. 2.5.6.11 are still here !
The green button went away but JBW seems to work almost well, with its lot of bugs and annoyances.
2.999 pre-5 is really a PITA for me. Dunno if everybody’s equal in the world, it seems not, depending on eplague servers.

By the way, the developer seems to have abandoned the program, I didn’t see any post of him for a while and he didn’t respond to my questions.
Regards

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / force JBidwatcher to re-import auctions.xml

Hi,
This won’t help you but I vote for your request to get a menu item to import csv files. Not exclusively for the current tab but for all the tabs, standard and added ones.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / no more thumbnails ?

Hi,

10 days ago, I updated Java from Ver. 8 update 51 (build 1.8.0_51-b16) to Ver. 8 update 77 (build 1.8.0_77-b03).
I then had random issues with the thumbnails that were playing hide and seek.
Yesterday I noticed that none of the new entries had any thumbnails.
I don’t know if this java related or not.

Any clue about what to look for ?

Thanks in advance and best regards
