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.

It works fine on every other site, just on SO it recently stopped working.

I just get the page and the regular orange bar when I'm expecting the white overlay bar to tell me I'm logged in and to refresh the page. Like I said, it works normally on every site except SO.

The error console reports an error when I load the page:

$("#topbar a[href^='/users/recent/']:first").attr("href") is undefined

Included is a picture of it not working, along with the error console.

Edit: after closing out of and reopening Firefox, the problem went away. Any reason why this happened?

That looks like an error in a Greasemonkey script, not something in Stack Overflow.

Global Login is really JavaScript heavy, so any errors could gum the whole thing up.

Oh, whoops. You're absolutely right. I had an old GreaseMonkey script that I didn't even remember installing! I uninstalled it once I noticed it. – Corey Sep 26 '10 at 2:16
