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.

When I connect to Stack Overflow and click on the "login" button, I am taken to the login page, as expected. When I click on "Google" (as I always have), the "Welcome back, Number8, you are being logged in ..." popup appears briefly, then disappears, and I'm not logged in...

Is there a known issue with Firefox, or a configuration setting I haven't figured out yet?

Bonus: I can't seem to post a question on this site from Firefox (I'm using Internet Explorer 10 to post this).

Platform: Windows 7, FireFox 21.0.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Sounds like a Firefox cookie configuration problem. – Ramhound Jun 13 '13 at 15:42
I cannot confirm that. It works for me like expected. – rekire Jun 13 '13 at 17:58
Weird. I can now log in to meta.StackOverflow.com, StackOverflow.com, SuperUser.com.... Not sure what changed ?! – Number8 Jun 13 '13 at 20:22
Seems like clearing all history in Firefox has cleared up the problem (at least for now). – Number8 Jun 14 '13 at 22:57
I have the same issue. – John F. Miller Jun 21 '13 at 4:47
JFMiller: I am logged in w/ Firefox now, although it initially appeared that I wasn't -- confusing. (I generally use my Google credentials.) Clearing the Firefox cache as thoroughly as possible is, I think, what made the difference. – Number8 Jun 21 '13 at 17:27
Same here, clearing cache also fixed it for meta, but the problem persists with stackoverflow itself. – Dav Clark Jun 22 '13 at 1:28
I just connected on this meta but I have that problem on RPG.stackexchange tho – MrJinPengyou Dec 11 '13 at 1:16
