Redirects during link in from facebook

Was clued into a problem with redirects from TPB while following a link. The event occurs on first request of the session. I was unable to replicate the occurrence so I asked a tech friend of mine if he got a redirect and he did in fact get a redirect.

He was able to log both a first session request and a second session request, both logs are attached.

The lack of an obvious HTTP302 to the suspect domain is itself a little worrying

I did another request and recorded Javascript calls (to a JSON file), but I'm not sure how to review it.

Thanks for posting this, Battou. Our TPF tech guru is Chris of Arabia (he also put up our FB page). I will bring this to his attention and we'll see what light can be shed on this. TBH, the FB page doesn't see much action, as the bulk of our posters seem happy to post right here on the forum, or we might have stumbled across this sooner. Thanks again!

I've just been looking at the FB page, but am perhaps missing what you're seeing. Can you tell me on which of the pages you're seeing the link? I've just been to the thread mentioned in the redirect log file (from here in TPB) and it works just fine.

It originated during link in from a link I posted in a FB group for beginners and only occurs during the first inbound request of a session, meaning you would have to log out, and clear your session cookies to replicate the redirect.
