Zend_Session_Namespace does not work in chrome browser. The site is The navigation choice is saved in session. It works in Firefox 4 and IE 9. However, Chrome browser doesn't store the session. I use Zend Session as following

<pre class="highlight">
$restNamespace = new Zend_Session_Namespace('explorenyc');
    $restNamespace->boro = array();
    if($input->do=="add" && !empty($input->val)){
            $restNamespace->cuisine[$input->val] = 1;

        else if($input->obj=="boro"){
            $restNamespace->boro[$input->val] = 1;
        else if($input->obj=="neighborhood"){
            $restNamespace->neighborhood[$input->val] = 1;
    if($input->do=="clear" && !empty($input->val)){
        else if($input->obj=="boro"){
        else if($input->obj=="neighborhood"){

Let me know any suggestions to resolve the problem. The issue is replicated on localhost using wamp. I appreciate your help.

This problem also causes Zend_Auth to fail in Chrome under PHP 5.3 only. Login is possible but Zend_Auth::getInstance()->hasIdentity() returns false because of the session problem.

Anything going on with this?

Zend session doesn't work well with associative arrays. I got it working with indexed array.

one)){ $one = $test->one; $one = " abc ".$one; $test->one = $one; } else{ $test->one = "hello"; } $this->view->test = $test->one; if(!empty($test->sal)){ $sal = $test->sal; $pos = rand(0, 9); $sal[$pos] = rand(30000, 170000); $test->sal = $sal; } else{ $arr = array(); for($i=0; $i<10; $i++){ $arr[$i] = 1; } $test->sal = $arr; } $this->view->sal = $test->sal; } } Posted by Markus Hausammann (tharkun) on 2011-07-21T15:06:43.000+0000 This is actually a bug in PHP, $\_REQUEST does not contain $\_COOKIE anymore. The php.ini setting request\_order = "GPC" fixes the problem.

Posted by Vlad Vinnikov (vlad.vinnikov) on 2011-07-22T13:56:44.000+0000 Another solution is to avoid using session all together. I can pass arguments in the query string instead: […]( Posted by Markus Hausammann (tharkun) on 2011-07-22T14:05:23.000+0000 Well, if you use Zend\_Auth that really doesn't help. Posted by Satoru Yoshida (satoruyoshida) on 2011-07-26T14:10:42.000+0000 Set component and auto-reassign. Posted by Sebastian Galenski (galenski) on 2011-09-13T15:29:40.000+0000 heard like a missing favicon.ico. chrome makes a new thread for requesting the favicon.ico. so if you handle 404 requests in a way with updating a session-cookie you will get a new session-id and your visible browser tab session has an other session than the "favicon" request! check your serverlogs and 404 handling. Posted by Rowinson Gallego Medina (rowgm) on 2011-11-29T04:50:28.000+0000 Is there any solution? It's so annoying that all my ZF apps will not work well in Chrome. Posted by Rowinson Gallego Medina (rowgm) on 2011-11-29T06:04:28.000+0000 Yes Sebastian Galenski, I found that problem too. I print the $response object in every preDispatch call in my bootstrap and Chrome always asks for the favicon.ico. Thank you so much! Posted by Adam Lundrigan (adamlundrigan) on 2012-03-13T18:51:54.000+0000 This is not an issue with Zend Framework itself. It is an issue with how Chrome requests favicon files in parallel with the initial GET request.
