Cannot login on meteor.com website (with chrome Version 44.0.2403.89 beta (64-bit))


#1

Just tried to login on meteor.com but clicking on the top-right “SIGN IN” rectangle nothing happens.

I had to run

$('#login-sign-in-link').click()

from the browser’s console to get the usual accounts-ui form to pop up.

Anyone else experiencing this problem?
It used to work one month ago when I last used it… :frowning:

Just updated, chrome 44.0.2403.89 stable x86_64 Linux. Same issue.

So I have done some tinkering and it seems to be because chrome no longer considers content in an ::after as part of the same region as an anchor tag. The Meteor login is not actually a styled accounts-ui, they hid the origional link with css and appended the Sign In ▾ as ::after css content. Not sure if this is a bug or by design.

We just pushed a fix that no longer uses ::after for the login button. Hopefully on Monday we can make a better fix that keeps the original appearance.
