I'm on some page (https://tex.stackexchange.com/tags) of a site I have never logged into before. I click on the login button using my StackExchange OpenID creds. Instead of being taken to the page I was in before clicking the login button, I'm taken to the home page. This is despite the fact that I see the url https://tex.stackexchange.com/users/login?returnurl=%2ftags#log-in before clicking the other (bigger) Login button.


  • I can reproduce both with Chromium 17 and Firefox 10.
  • Clicking the returnurl link again works... takes me to https://tex.stackexchange.com/tags.
  • For sites I have visited before, I automatically get logged in via clicking any clickable.

update: I no longer experience this issue.

  • There are actually quite a few login issues with OpenID across all of the stack sites. – NotMe Mar 9 '12 at 15:31

Thanks for bringing this up. I cannot reproduce the issue in the current build of our network sites. If it remains an issue let me know!
