Recently, the redirect behaviour of login on SEDE has changed (for the worse). Steps to reproduce:
- When logged off, go to a query page
- Click the "login" link
Previously, you would be returned to the query page in a logged-in state (ready to run the query without captcha).
Currently, you are redirected to the SEDE front page (
http://data.stackexchange.com/#) (so you then have to re-navigate back to where you were). The
returnurl parameter passed in the first few steps is lost somewhere along the way.
Could the previous "returning" redirect be reinstated?
