-{{:​blog:​lastfm.png?​direct&​220 |}}I have stumbled upon a fix for Clementine'​s inability to scrobble to Last.fm which I [[blog:​debian_blues|reported earlier]]. It turns out to be a problem with Firefox, not Clementine: I mentioned last time that the error reported seemed to indicate that Last.fm was replying to Clementine'​s authorisation request in plain http when secure https was expected. This was close! In fact, Last.fm explicitly do use http for this authorisation process and it's Firefox'​s built-in attempts to upgrade the connection to https that's causing the problem.+{{:​blog:​lastfm.png?​direct&​150 |}}I have stumbled upon a fix for Clementine'​s inability to scrobble to Last.fm which I [[blog:​debian_blues|reported earlier]].

 So the fix is to **temporarily** stop Firefox attempting to upgrade to https all the time. This is done in the //​about:​config//​ page; search for **security.csp**,​ as shown here: So the fix is to **temporarily** stop Firefox attempting to upgrade to https all the time.
