Hello @ll,
I wanted to continue my translation of the test cases in Moztrap, 
when I got the message

Forbidden (403)

CSRF verification failed. Request aborted.

Reason given for failure:

    CSRF token missing or incorrect.

In general, this can occur when there is a genuine Cross Site 
Request Forgery, or when Django's CSRF mechanism has not been used 
correctly. For POST forms, you need to ensure:

    Your browser is accepting cookies.
    The view function uses RequestContext for the template, instead 
of Context.
    In the template, there is a {% csrf_token %} template tag inside 
each POST form that targets an internal URL.
    If you are not using CsrfViewMiddleware, then you must use 
csrf_protect on any views that use the csrf_token template tag, as 
well as those that accept the POST data.

You're seeing the help section of this page because you have DEBUG = 
True in your Django settings file. Change that to False, and only 
the initial error message will be displayed.

You can customize this page using the CSRF_FAILURE_VIEW setting.

, when I try to login ... :( Does anybody know, why I get this 
message? And/or is able to fix django?
TIA for any answer/fix

Surprise due today. Also the rent.
