OskiCat users are experiencing a problem when saving items from a search to MyLists while not logged in. Note that this is different from the previously reported problem in which existing lists could not be accessed.
The new problem occurs only when a user who is not logged in does a search, clicks on "save all", then on "save to my lists". At this point, a "Proxy Error" screen appears.
To avoid the proxy error:
