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 am unable to login to stackoverflow, meta.stackoverflow or askubuntu.com using Firefox 17 on Ubuntu 12.10 with Stack Exchange

It just hangs there showing the moving 3 dots: "..."

It's a clean install of the OS. Firefox has the following extension / plugins installed:

  • Dummy Lipsum 3.0.0
  • Firebug 1.10.6
  • FirePHP 0.7.1
  • Global Menu integration 3.6.4 (ubuntu addon)
  • Live HTTP Headers 0.17
  • Web Developer 1.2.2
  • Adblock Plus 2.2.1



It seems that Adblock Plus it's the culprit. Disabling makes it work!

Same problem here. Thanks for the update that it's Adblock. –  Haatschii Nov 28 '12 at 22:59
