At the moment, I am unable to login via StackExchange. When I click the "Login with StackExchange" button on the login page I see three moving dots (enter image description here) but even after some minutes nothing happenes.
This happens in every browser I've tried (the latest versions of FF, Chrome, IE, Safari and Opera)

There was an error with our OpenID provider trying to hit a shared redis instance that moved across the country (more accurately, it was firewalled for slaving until we upgrade to 2.6 later this month)

We've moved it to a secondary instance that isn't involved in slaving and it's back online now.

  • Didn't what to post the same question, but i have the same problem. I'm unable to login to stackoverflow using Firefox 17. The dots appear and then nothing. In Chrome the login process is working fine. Oh and i'm using Ubuntu 12.10 Nov 28, 2012 at 9:38
  • @VladBalmos - please post a new question with as many details as possible - that's definitely a separate issue and hopefully we can help you out. Also be sure to check addons and such in Firefox. Nov 28, 2012 at 13:20
