Steps to reproduce
Install RES extension (https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/extensions/)
You need two reddit accounts for this. One to sign into first and another to attempt to switch to.
- Sign into your first reddit account
- Open the extension settings (Menu -> Extensions -> RES -> Options)
- On the left hand side, go to My Account -> Account Switcher
- Click the “add account” button
- Add your second reddit accounts details here
- Click the “save options” button
- Select the account switcher button (snoo next to account name at top
right of site)
- Select account to switch to.
Current session is destroyed and you sign into selected account.
Account switching fails.
CONFLICT - The request could not be completed due to a conflict with the current state of the resource.
(XHR): POST - https://www.reddit.com/api/login?app=res
This only happens when a session is active. If you sign out completely and use the account switcher you sign into an account straight away. It appears to be an issue with extensions killing sessions/cookies.
