I’ve been.getting page errors on a variety of sites when using both safari and edge browsers. This one came from my school account when I was trying to open a different page and was dumped out:

• Activity ID: 00000000-0000-0000-7e3f-0180000400db • Error time: Tue, 29 May 2018 14:42:18 GMT • Cookie: enabled • User agent string: Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 11_3 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/11.0 Mobile/15E148 Safari/604.1

I also got Disallowed Provider Error when trying to connect to my Azure account for school.

The operation is not permitted for namespace 'Microsoft.Storage'. List of permitted provider namespaces is 'Microsoft.Authorization,Microsoft.Features,microsoft.insights,Microsoft.NotificationHubs,Microsoft.Resources,Microsoft.Sql,microsoft.support,microsoft.visualstudio,Microsoft.Web,SuccessBricks.ClearDB'.

Plus, this happened on my fathers computer

Which leads me to believe that their somehow related. I’m normally don't use Firefox. I no longer have a Mac. And I don’t recall installing any Webkits.

Is there away to fix this without access to Mac? I have already replaced the phone and just keeps happening.

  • Can you add some details about your actual setup and what are doing to get this error? All we currently know is that something is wrong, but not how you get there – nohillside May 29 '18 at 16:09

You need to use a different web browser. The paid web browser iCab lets you change the user agent string.

Whether or not your access to the website is blocked because of the namespace issue mentioned by poster grg is beyond the scope of my answer.

It is not uncommon for education sites to have Windows dependencies built in the site. You may try some of these browsers to get around Windows dependencies.

It's not possible to change your user agent string on iPhone. The user agent string you provided is the standard string that an iPhone uses; nothing out of the ordinary there.

Regardless of this, the mentioned error is not because of the iPhone user agent. The error mentions namespaces for providers, this is regarding the namespaces for the authentication provider that the website single sign on uses. This is something you should contact your administrator about.
