ok, this is bizarre, but I cannot for the life of me get the REST api to work through a tool like Firefox's Http Requester.
I am just doing a basic get call to: https://cs1.salesforce.com/services/data/v20.0/
The only header I have is:
Authorization: Bearer access_token
The result I get is a browser login page with some text: "You have attempted to access a page that requires a salesforce.com login. If you are already a user of the system, please log in below."
Thing is, doing this through curl actually returns me the data I am looking for:
curl https://cs1.salesforce.com/services/data/v20.0/ -H 'Authorization: Bearer access_token'
This happens with Firefox's Poster add-on as well. Anyone have any ideas?
