I'm sure it is being looked into, as there have been significant changes since the time of the original thread. Without information about your particular browser, and if you are on a computer, a tablet, or smart phone, can help. If you are still experiencing issues that information will help the trouble shooters. Different browsers, different devices behave differently... This is not my area, but even though I can only personally log in on but a few of the possible browser/device combinations, I can tell it's no easy thing to troubleshoot.

I am starting to wonder whether this site has been optimized for phones and tablets at the expense of computer users.
