Not a bug  Error message after trying to view attachment as guest, and trying to login via Facebook

I can routinely reproduce this on XenForo.com and FF 3.6.15, maybe it is by design? It works correctly in IE8, for me anyway

During this test with FF, I'm already authenticated in facebook.

As a guest on XenForo, try to view an attachment from the "Style" forum, you'll be sent to the XF log-in page and asked to sign in. I click the "login with facebook" button, and instead of seeing the attachment (because I'm already authenticated with Facebook), I get a "Forbidden" message to that attachment. IE8 correctly shows me the attachment.

Could it be my browser misbehaving, or something wrong with the state of my Facebook session?

EDIT: I added that in both cases, I'm already authenticated with facebook.

Hmm, it's actually a local bug - it's because of our referrer checking in Apache. You're actually coming from Facebook.

So this isn't really an XF bug, though I will probably make a change here.
