Is it just me or is there a known problem with signing into (logging into) this community on a Mac using the latest Safari web browser (v7.0.5)?

Firefox works fine, but with Safari it shows a brief spinning icon and then stops.

Found the problem:  Cookies privacy setting is the default...



...and it's not just Safari that has this problem.  If you require a tad bit of privacy in your cookie browser settings for other browsers (e.g., Firefox) you can't login either.

Surely you shouldn't need to strip out best practice cookie settings just to log in here?  For the login of this site to work I have to set 'Never [block cookies]' and I'm not prepared to have this set all the time.  Hence to use this site I'm forced to fiddle with the settings, and each time I have to remember to restore the default protection after leaving.
