Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

At the moment, I am unable to login via StackExchange. When I click the "Login with StackExchange" button on the login page I see three moving dots (enter image description here) but even after some minutes nothing happenes.
This happens in every browser I've tried (the latest versions of FF, Chrome, IE, Safari and Opera)

There was some scheduled maintenance going on earlier, servers might still be a bit cranky (or it might not just be over yet). – Yannis Oct 13 '12 at 17:35
We are looking into this, thanks for letting us know. – Kyle Brandt Oct 13 '12 at 17:37

There was an error with our OpenID provider trying to hit a shared redis instance that moved across the country (more accurately, it was firewalled for slaving until we upgrade to 2.6 later this month)

We've moved it to a secondary instance that isn't involved in slaving and it's back online now.

Didn't what to post the same question, but i have the same problem. I'm unable to login to stackoverflow using Firefox 17. The dots appear and then nothing. In Chrome the login process is working fine. Oh and i'm using Ubuntu 12.10 – Vlad Balmos Nov 28 '12 at 9:38
@VladBalmos - please post a new question with as many details as possible - that's definitely a separate issue and hopefully we can help you out. Also be sure to check addons and such in Firefox. – Nick Craver Nov 28 '12 at 13:20
