Bonfire variables no longer working in templates after upgrading to


Our Bonfire variables are no longer working after upgrading to If I go to:

Templates -> Variables and click the "view" on the variable, I see the result in a javascript alert box but the variables are no longer working in any templates.

See below for an example of a now no-longer working variable/template that was functioning in


  1. Name: getCookie
  2. Value: document.cookie.split(",")


  1. {getCookie} placed in the description field.

As of this is no longer working in Firefox 13.0.1. Have anyone experienced the same problem after upgrading?

Windows 7 (Windows NT 6.1)

I found the "problem". Seems like the variables are no longer fetched when I select the template. Instead, they are fetched when I submit the issue. If submitted to JIRA everything looks fine.
