Everytime, I try to log in via Safari, I get a blank page after hiting enter. (the title then says "about:blank")

With TenFourFox everything works. But I use Safari for certain stuff/reasons, too and I don't want to switch/open the other browser all the time.

There were problems earlier today accessing the forum on any platform.
I had this everytime the last days and still.

Also I now noticed that in the upper right it says "log out", allthough I am not logged-in and the light under the avatar is grey, too.
When I then press on log out (just assuming that would cure it), it says "problems occured, logging out, press here". But that doesn't log me out as well.
So, if I am logged in, I should be able to post and see my status as green (online), but I always get the "password and username" window. I type it in and press enter and get "about:blank" again.

No problems with TenFourFox.


Edit: in TFFx it says log out in the upper right corner as well, but I am logged off. Pressing "Log out" doesn't work here as well. BUT! I can type in my username and password and press enter and I can edit and write messages. My online-status is still grey, though.

Do I have to tell no-script to not block servepages com and leadpages net?

Forgot about this thread, but my Safari Problems haven't disappeared on any day I tried, so this is not a maintenance issue of a single day.

Everytime I logg in, I get a blank "about:blank" page. I have to push the back button and then hit "post answer" again. When I send the answer to a thread, I get the white page again and have to go back, then go to the Thread form the main overview and click refresh.

In TenFourFox / Firefox the only problem is, that it shows "log out" in the upper rigth corner, indicating I was logged in, which I am not. Pressing it, doesn't change anything.

I wonder, why I am the only person having problems with safari. I mean I use T4FX anyway, but...

I was getting the same issue on the TiBook earlier in the week. 10.4.11, whatever the latest version of Safari is that it'll run.

Thanks for all the reports!
I was starting to believe either my install is getting wonky or I am just stupid. :)
