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

I'm using Firefox 3.6.18 and Ubuntu 10.04. Network Login Troubleshoot says I'm OK.

I've logged out of Cooking.SE. I've turned off my computer (had to go). I went to meta.SO. I went to Cooking.SE...

Q&A Notification

Then I went to 'log in' to force login and no cigar. Login screen

I'll have to type my SE.OpenID to login.

I've logged out of Cooking.SE.

This clears your SE network cookie (but not any other existing logins), as displayed on the logout page. To reinstate this cookie, you need to relogin to a SE site.

I did that: "I went to meta.SE". – GUI Junkie Jul 19 '11 at 14:15
Going to MSO doesn't count, you actually have to go through the entire login procedure on one site to reinstate the cookie. – waiwai933 Jul 19 '11 at 16:17
Meta.SO (typo). OK, I got that. Still, weird that pushing 'login' doesn't force login. – GUI Junkie Jul 19 '11 at 16:33
