Can something be done to enable me to log into unix.stackexchange chat?
When I am logged into unix.stackexchange, I sometimes click on links to join chat, either within the comments of a posting, or in the formal chat room area. But in each case, I am only able to view the requested chat room, and I get a message indicating that I need to be logged in before I can chat. But I am already logged in at that point.
To clarify the problem, I try things like logging in again, logging in to stackexchange, etc. But even after these steps, I still get the same message about not being able to join chat until I log in.
By contrast, I am allowed to engage in chat in other stackexchange sites of which I am a member.
NOTE: I am using CentOS 7 and Firefox. However, I just tested it on Windows 7 using Internet Explorer 11, and the site did not allow me to log in to chat either. In internet explorer, I tested it with both InPrivate and with normal browsing. Also, this is a problem 100% of the time, so this is not a problem with server maintenance as suggested by a comment below.
Note: I am also not able to log into serverfault chat., but of course i can log in to stack overflow chat. What gives?
