  • And no other plugins/add-ons that might be at play?

    That might be the problem then. The login system seems to rely on browsers accepting 3rd party cookies. But I think it is better to wait for @AdamLear to confirm or dismiss my guesses

  • @rene how come it doesn't work with only Area 51 though?

  • That is because Area51 is an older/different code base that is not/ not easily patched for newer features.
