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

The login form just doesn't appear.

Firebug shows an error in jquery:

Node cannot be inserted at the specified point in the hierarchy" code: "3

Relevant stack trace:

Error thrown at line 16, column 112430 in <anonymous function: append>(a) in
called from line 16, column 117365 in <anonymous function: domManip>(a, c, e) in$(this[l],g):this[l],f.cacheable||m>1&&l<n?d.clone(h,!0,!0):h)

Just tried it out in chrome now, and it shows another error message:

Uncaught Error: HIERARCHY_REQUEST_ERR: DOM Exception 3
    (anonymous function)login:32

This happens in stackoverflow but not in any other stackexchange site.

I'm using Firefox 4.0.1 and Chrome 12.0.742.100

We're looking at it. – Rebecca Chernoff Jun 17 '11 at 2:04

Unfortunately I cannot reproduce this - that being said from the number of reports we're seeing, it's obviously happening.

I've reverted the changeset that cleans up the login page until I can repro the issue and resolve it, the login page should now work as it did previously.
