"Return" button in New Quizzes will/does break in Chrome 85 (new referrer policy defaults)

Canvas white logo

 

Description

 

The "Return" button in New Quizzes will break in Chrome soon for everyone as Google rolls out this change. (Rough estimates feel like about 50/50 as of mid-September.) Thoroughly described and documented with recommendations on https://developers.google.com/web/updates/2020/07/referrer-policy-new-chrome-default

This means that some Chrome browsers already have the "Referrer Policy: Default to strict-origin-when-cross-origin" feature flag enabled by default. As a result, when those users launch New Quizzes, the "Return" button takes users to the course homepage, instead of the index page used to access the quiz.

Expected Behavior


The "Return" button should return user to the index page used to access the New Quiz.

Steps to Reproduce

 

Prerequisites: A course with New Quizzes enabled and a New Quiz

  • Go to chrome://flags/#reduced-referrer-granularity - ensure it is enabled
  • Launch the New Quiz from a page that is not the homepage (Assignments, Quizzes, Modules ect)
  • Use the return button - note that you are returned to the Course home page
