This is stupid, ie9 rc reset, and I am still stuck at create a profile. Using winph because you locked me out like this.
Yikes.. yeah, sounds like a cookie problem. Clear your cookies! We've found that IE9 tends to cache things that it shouldn't and hold onto things even when you have cleared your cache so if that doesn't work go to Internet Options -> Browsing History -> Settings -> View Files -> and delete everything in that Temporary Internet Files folder.
I did a "factory reset" since clear all history didn't work. But, "factory reset" didn't work either.
It is not IE9 problem. I had the same problem on IE8. Although IE8 "factory reset" works, while IE9 ""factory reset"" doesn't.
After I created a bogus account, the next day, ch9 foreced me to login by redirecting me to live login page. At that point, I used this account instead of bogus one. But, it took me whole day to be released.
Just for more info, once I created bogus account, I was unable to log off.
Few things to be clear.
1) unable to log off. (with none-C9 hotmail account)
2) unable to log off. (right after creating bogus account on that hotmail.) (soon C9 server crashed too with of asp error reporting yellow box background page).
3) forced to log in by redirecting me to a live login page. This case, I am not logged in by any account for sure because I would either get case 1 or already in the site with pre-login.
Please read case 3 extremely closely. I am not logged in with live account at anywhere. Not Live Client, Not browser. I am forced to get to live login page. If I don't have any live account, I probably will stuck at love login page and never access the site.
@magicalclick: you wouldn't have been sent to the Live ID login page if you didn't have a Live ID. Either the Live ID assistant is 'helping' you with this, by sending Live ID tokens along with your request even when you are not wanting it to (they may be expired or invalid, which is sending you to the Live ID sign in page), or for some other reason you have a Live ID token in your cookies.
We never 'force' Live ID sign in, but if we get a Live ID token sent to us, and it is invalid or expired, we ask Live ID to re-authenticate you. At that point, it may do a 'silent' re-authentication that you shouldn't even notice or it might need you to provide your credentials. We have little control over what happens at that point.
solution, I either remove LiveID sign-in Helper or register+used the fake account.
Since I don't think I should remove LiveID sign-in Helper for a single site, I choose my second option.
I really don't think a failed helper plug-in or default cookie settig should lock a person in one place. Simple as that. It is not about where it went wrong. It is more about, when it went wrong, handle the error gracefully. You don't want an elevator failed and let it fall and say, hey, that's out of my control.
@magicalclick: I'm not suggesting that we shouldn't fix this, but at the moment we *do* try to fix it by sending you back to the Live ID logout page that is supposed to clear your cookies and bring you back to us like a regular 'anonymous' user. In browsers that aren't running the sign-in assistant, that works... so we need to figure out what, if anything, we need to do differently so that it works with that plug-in installed. I just wanted you to understand that what you were experiencing (having to login) was not expected, or even the experience without that plug-in.
There is nothing to clear. I already cleared all cookies, all history, and even entirely reset the IE, and close IE reopen.
Well, just ask hotmail team because I never have this problem with hotmails. Obviously everyone would scream if hotmail handles multiple accounts poorly.
It doesn't matter anymore. I will just login with account2. It is uncommon because there are very few people actually have two hotmail accounts and actively using both accounts on hotmail, while also frequently using C9 and have plug-in intalled. And it is much much rare when you actually see a user refused to register for 'anonymous' browsing. Most people would register without realizing that's another LiveID to begin with.
