Another week passes.

You now it is hard to believe that one of the richest and most powerful companies in the world can find it so difficult to fix what seems to be a quite basic problem. That's about nine weeks now and still no fix and no comment?

A little feedback on why this cannot be fixed would be nice, would it not? ;)

Actually there were a few of us that were complaining about this exact same issue for a lot longer than that. Those threads only attracted a handful of posts as it was not yet a common place problem

Now it seems a lot more people are affected. Same problem though.

At least they have added the "already logged in" bit which is a great improvement.

What bothers me is the length of time it takes to load the site when you click the "Take me to my account" link.

Actually the whole site is very slow these past few weeks.

Our biggest can't even manage basic SEO making it a nightmare to research technical data on their site via Google.

Every page on the site and, they numbered 1,000's had:

<title>http://www.example.com/</title>

The description and keyword tags weren't much better but were also identical and repetitive site wide.

Hasn't improved very much since BUT:

BUT

They do make extensive use of that infernal FLASH.

Shame all these whizz kids playing webmasters don't at least get 4 hours of basic SEO in their courses.

Ahhh...interesting, I've just been configuring a new machine today and the "normal" log-in worked!

Must check with another machine that's never accessed AdSense before.

I thnk we can now assume that this is not going to be fixed. Seems like they don't know how to, which is a concern for a company with google's resources.

Is there anyway around this problem on the webmaster side? I've been waiting for a fix, but if it's as simple as entering a new password I'd be willing to change mine.

My work around is that I have [google.com...] in the bookmark bar and click that rather than the report link on the page.
For me, it does the login correctly - YMMV :(

Yep, that's what I do on all my machines, although it's not quick by any measure, except the new one I configured, that works perfectly the traditional way.
