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

My problem: I simply can't log into any Stack Exchange pages using SE credentials, Google credentials, FB credentials or anything else I've tried. When I try all that happens is that the browser loads up a empty page with a long query string added to the url.

The only way that I am able to post this question is that for some strange reason I was able to log in on by Linux machine, through Firefox the other day and have not dared to shut the session off.

This has, as far as I can figure, nothing to do with the following:

  1. Location/Network: This happens on 3G, at work and at home. There are no filters blocking any of these networks that could be the culprit.
  2. Operating systems: Not that they are a likely culprit, but this happens on Mac, Ubuntu 12.04 Linux and Windows 7.
  3. Browsers: Happens on Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Chromium and Opera (not tried on Opera for some time). I have no blocking add ons (adds etc) or filters. I have been unable to connect on a Linux machine running Firefox, unsynced, right after a fresh format/resetup. So there couldn't be anything hanging in the browser cache or anywhere else.

I am at a loss what could be causing this. Any help would be much appreciated!
