I appear to be having issues when visiting child sites from my Network Profile.

When I go to the child site (seen so far on SO and SU) I appear to not be logged in:

After clicking "log in", it takes me to the login page and quickly auto-redirects me:

When I'm redirected back to the site, I'm again not logged in.

Not sure what additional details are required - I'm on OSX Yosemite, using Firefox 36.0.1. I don't have any addons that would relate to redirects, cookie or session changes or generally rewrite a page.

When I check out my cookies on SU, I appear to have one for acct and another for usr both for ".superuser.com". Unsure if these are private, so I won't post them. Interestingly, there also appears to be a usr cookie for "superuser.com", however this one has no value, whilst the other two do.

Nuked all cookies whilst on SU and reloaded the page, it auto logged me in (without being at the login page) and all worked when I reloaded again. Definitely a cookie issue, unfortunately I was in a rush and didn't take the time to work out which cookie it was.

Deleting cookies should resolve the issue for any other users who experience this though.
