Jira Header Menu sometimes disappearing with mod_proxy Edited

I configured my Jira instance behind an Apache with ssl enabled:


scheme="https" proxyName="jira.xxx.com" proxyPort="443" secure="true"


ProxyRequests Off
ProxyPreserveHost On

ProxyPass / http://localhost:8090
ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8090

<Location />
   Require all granted

 Everything seems to work but I do miss often the header menu (Dashboard Link, Issues-Link, Create Button etc). If I relaod the site permanently, the menu eventually appears again.

 Without Menu:

With Menu after several reloads:

What is here the cause? I checked everything a couple of times. Nothing helps so far.


Edit: I just noticed that also the sidebar is sometimes not appearing:

Do you see any errors when accessing jira with developer tools? Console/network


Hi Lars

thanks for the hint. The Google Page Speed module in Apache did somehow block the menu CSS file as far as I could see. With that module disabled, it seems to work.


Yes, this solved the problem for me as well. I use an apache proxy with pagespeed enabled. Disabling it in e.g. 


ModPagespeed Off 

Did the job for me.
