I get an error message stating

Unable to log in with your OpenID provider:

The openid.return_to parameter <long url> the request was made with.

I can log in fine on other Stack Exchange sites, including this one. I've tried from a couple of different computers. I'm using Firefox.

  • SE changed the login mechanism recently, guess it's related - somehow it borked Area 51 login. Mar 2, 2016 at 22:15
  • @ShadowWizard Unrelated. This issue has existed for a long time... though I've not really been able to track down why. Seems to be intermittent even for people it does affect.

  • Thanks @Adam, changed the other one to bug as well then. Good luck catching this bug! :) Mar 3, 2016 at 7:58
  • @AdamLear This bug is definitely not intermittent for me. If there's any extra information I can provide to you to help track this down, let me know.
