  • I can confirm this bug. Happens on plain Ubuntu as well. I am running my own DNS server, VPN to a VPS or even plain commercial ISP at home. Notice that this happens only on meta, not on main.

  • I can confirm this bug on Windows as well using both Firefox and Chrome. Moreover, "Sign up using Facebook" also returns 404 Error Page. However, "Sign up using Stack Exchange" seems to work well.
