I am running Civi 4.5.5. with Drupal 7. I think this happened after the most recent Drupal update but I cannot be 100% sure when it started.

When trying to edit a donation I get this error "Unable to reach the server. Please refresh this page in your browser and try again." I already followed all the suggestions at http://forum.civicrm.org/index.php?topic=28718.0 but none of those worked.

I am getting two JS errors in the console.

context=contribution&snippet=json. No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is 
present on the requested resource. Origin 'https:// site.org' is therefore 
not allowed access. The response had HTTP status code 403.

I thought the problem might be my .htaccess file but I am using the same version of the file from before the Drupal upgrade.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

  • There are not spaces in the URLs from the Java console but Stack Exchange will not let me post more than 2 links.

I upgraded to the newest version of CiviCRM and this appears to be resolved.
