I cannot login to Meta with Firefox. This is the login form:

When I click Log in using Stack Exchange I get the following:

Neither Email nor Password field has focus. When I click one of these fields to set the focus, the Log in using Stack Exchange section closes, and I get the following form again:

I can reproduce the error in Firefox 26.0/Linux and Firefox 25.0/Windows. There is no problem in Chrome, Opera or IE.

  • Reproduced in Firefox 26.0 on OSX 10.7

Fixed will be with you in build rev 2014.1.16.1861.


As a workaround until it's fixed, follow these steps:

  1. Click "More login options"
  2. Type https://openid.stackexchange.com into the "manually enter your OpenId" textbox
  3. Click Submit and you will get the form, solid this time.

    I confirm that it works. Alternatively, you can start typing your login or password in the initial form without releasing the mouse button. The section will stay open. Though the entire procedure is a bit tricky :)
