Updating a Developer Product's description often fails on the backend, despite saying it worked on the frontend (Creator Dashboard)

Reproduction Steps
If it matters, using latest version of Google Chrome

  1. Create a Developer Product on the Creator Dashboard
  2. Enter the Configure page for it
  3. Change the description of it
  4. Press “Save Changes”
  5. Observe the frontend says the change saved successfully, observe the backend often says a 403 error has occurred (via a browser’s developer console) or outputs no error and still fails

Expected Behavior
The developer product’s description is successfully updated. If not, the frontend says an error has occurred instead of lying to me. :frowning:

Actual Behavior
The developer product’s description is almost never updated. The frontend will always say it succeeded, even when it doesn’t.

This also applies to updating the price of the DevProduct. Also, when this does silently fail it sets the price and description back to their former values.
