What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 144 Stack Exchange communities.

When I press login (using Stack Exchange), the next page shows the "signup" option first, post-loading the "signin" option. I sometimes click on signup quickly, but use then the signin way. When this happens, the response on login is "File/Page not found."

Signin works fine, if I don't click signup beforehand.

Reproduce this as follows:

  1. Go to http://stackoverflow.com/users/login

  2. Click "log in with Stack Exchange"

  3. Click "click here to sign up"

  4. Now don't sign up; rather, sign in using your credentials

  5. You should now see a 404.

Using Firebug, the 404 POST request is
