Macrumors work consistently to ruin the site. Now it shows this message:

What are you using that is causing that to pop up? I can take a look but it is not possible to login without cookies.

If you want to browse the forum without logging in, just click the X on the pop up that says ‘Oops’, and you can browse like normal.

I think I found this issue. Is it still happening?

Got the same message. After dismissing it I was also getting the following message randomly:

Oops! We ran into some problems.
Security error occurred. Please press back, refresh the page, and try again.
No longer seem to be getting them now. Thanks!

However, it is possible to login in anonymous mode, and temp cookies are scrapped after session.

I can take a look but it is not possible to login without cookies.

@arn I was getting some empty (= white with no content) pages last evening Norway time, but I was also on my way out and didn't have time to alert you. The problem is gone today.
