    Yeah. I had this too one Firefox and Chrome. Safari finally behaved properly. BRUTAL.

    If I put a valid host in, without the URI part and with the URI part in Safari, it complains that it's not a valid URL, even though it is ping-able and is a valid host. Something is very messed up with their parsing and I would suspect it was since they started to restrict what strings you can use in the URL/URI.

    Here are the restricted strings, but I didn't have any of these in my URL:

    'The following strings are not allowed: yahoo, yahoo!, y!, oath, verizon, verizon media, aol, techcrunch, huffington post, huffpost, engadget, flurry, ryot, tumblr and vdms'

    We are having this issue as well. It's ridiculous. It's like someone got lazy and didn't want to bother with parsing something.

    Here is the message you get if you try to use yahoo in your redirect URI:

    'The following strings are not allowed: yahoo, yahoo!, y!, oath, verizon, verizon media, aol, techcrunch, huffington post, huffpost, engadget, flurry, ryot, tumblr and vdms'
