Actually when a user creates a new account he’s redirected automatically to the account dashboard an receive a simple notice saying “thanks for register....”
When I test this in a Mac using Safari browser I’m redirected to the login again and not to the correct dashboard page.

Any idea? Hope someone could help me because I really need it
Thank you very much!
Andrea

I must add that when you try to login using Safari in a Mac the page does not work. I think that maybe there is an error that the page doesn’t show and so I can’t see what happens.
Can anybody help with this issue? Is a bug?

Thanks

UPDATE:

I’ve increased the Cookie Lifetime to 86400 and the results are:

1) A registered user can login without problems.
2) A new user is redirected to HOME after complete the form. In IE and FF the new user is redirected to the account dashboard where he receives a “thank you for register” message.

Any idea?
Thanks

The problem of redirect to the home is related to the detection of the browser

and the problem of not redirect to the dashboard in registration is related to the cookies

This is not the root solution, is a “trick” of the configuration

Not evaluate as it affects the security of the system

This solution was tested in Magento 1.2.1.2

Solution:

Go to Menu -> System -> Configuration

Tab -> Web
Session Cookie management
Field Cookie Domain : site domain (ex: yoursite.com)
Field Cookie Lifetime : 86400

Session Validation Settings
Field Validate REMOTE_ADDR : No

Good luck, Oliver
