What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I just switched over from using Chrome to using Firefox. I am able to login to all the other StackExchange sites (including this one), but for some reason when I login on stack overflow, it tells me that it is logging me in, but then returns to the main page with no login displayed. I attempted clearing my cache and restarting the browser, but to no avail. The process goes as follows:

Before clicking login:

Before clicking login

After clicking login: after clicking login

After redirect:

Does anyone have any advice or explanation?

Ah, Firefox. We love Firefox.

This is stupid, but: try clearing your browsing history.

Let me know if this doesn't work and we'll try something else.
