This morning I cleared my cache in various browsers (Chrome / FF / Opera).
Now, after clearing the cache I cant login by Chrome. When I click "Log in with Google" (as I use as login) - the following error appears in the console :
It also happends when I click on "log in with facebook" and "log in with Yahoo" - the 404 error repeats / increases each time. Only the StackExchange login seems to work :
The funny thing is, that I can login with FireFox and Opera. I have restarted Chrome several times with no luck.
Would rather prefer using stackoverflow with Chrome. What could possible be wrong? Cannot see how a reset of cache can invoke this error for a particular browser. And it is not the first time, so to say, that I have cleared my cache and re-connected to stackoverflow afterwards.
Never seen this behaviour before.
Note, I'm not sure that this is a "bug", or even related to the "bug"-tag. The system demanded the bug tag among several other suggestions, so I picked that up.
Also I am not sure that this has something to do with clearing the cache at all. Have auto-login for stackoverflow, so the question could also be "cannot login in by Chrome".
The Chrome version is 18.0.1025.168 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
Now it works with Chrome again! I logged in to another SO site (webmasters), almost accidently by Chrome - and suddenly I could log in to stackoverflow by using Chrome afterwards also. Have tried many times logging on by Chrome with the above mentioned error as result, after clear of cache. Apparently the cache was not only cleared, but somehow "corrupted".
