What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

When I first signed up for Drupal Answers, instead of my normal MyOpenID identity I created a StackExchange account -- by "mistake" since I somehow missed the MyOpenID option.

I've since signed back up with DA using MyOpenID, but I thought it might be useful to report that I cannot sign in to Drupal Answers with that StackExchange account when in IE8 because as soon as I click the "Login with StackExchange" button:

Login with StackExchange

IE8 goes catatonic and within one to three seconds no tab nor control surface in the browser is accessible. IE8 is locked up tighter than a drum and the only way to get out of it is to go into the Task Manager and force close IE. It is very reliable -- I can make it happen every time. This is on WinXP SP3. Everything is fully patched.

This doesn't happen with FireFox. I haven't tried it with any other browser.

I have Event Log info for this. It usually produces two events when it hangs. Here's the one that says it is IE hanging:

I hope this is useful information for someone.

+1 because I had to look up "catatonic". –  uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN May 23 '12 at 7:03
