I had problems logging in to Blogger over the weekend. Firefox is my default browser and on clicking the “Sign In” button nothing happened. Also, in other browsers, (Camino, Mozilla, and Safari) I was getting an authentication error message on clicking the “Publish Post” button. It was really frustrating!
I tried searching (Googling) for a resolution but the error was generic so I couldn’t find anything relevant. I wasn’t sure was there a problem with Blogger or with my Mac. Then I decided to have a look through the Blogger Help pages. On the Ask Blogger Support page I saw a “Login Difficulties?” link. I followed that link and found the resolution – it advised me to delete the Blogger Cookie in my browser. I did this and all was well in the (Blogger) world again.
I thought this was an isolated issue until I got a mail from FrankP this morning telling me he had Blogger login problems over the weekend! I wonder if there was a more general Blogger problem which corrupted cookies of people who published/tried to publish over the weekend.
