I can't login to chat.meta.stackexchange.com. When I click the login link from inside a chatroom, the page reloads and I seem to be redirected right back to the room, without being logged in. Same when I click the login link from the topbar.

I've tried clearing all my cookies matching stack. This quite effectively logged me out of everything else, but it didn't help my situation on chat.mse. I also tried a global logout, to no effect. I can log in successfully from an incognito window.

Any ideas?

Chrome 40.0.2214.115 on OS X 10.10.

    Do you happen to be using HTTP Everywhere? I've had this happen in the past, which required me to temporarily disable it. Mar 3 '15 at 1:06

As expected, this was caused by me being an idiot. I decided that it would be a wonderful idea to start using HTTPS Everywhere again, 'cause security. Turns out it's so secure it locks me out of chat. Which I guess would help me not click insecure links.

Bad script.

  • Feature request: have that plugin indicate when it's messing with the page, e.g. flashing key icon in the title bar. Mar 3 '15 at 7:46
