FAQ 211: Why do I receive errors when logging into LiveJournal?

With the most recent release, there was a change in the login procedure. It no longer requires use of JavaScript for encrypting the password, as it is now automatically done via SSL (previously found under "secure").
So, I'm deleting this bit:

Enable JavaScript: Verify that JavaScript is enabled in your browser. LiveJournal uses JavaScript to make logging into your journal more secure, along with other features.
  • Completely Disabled: If JavaScript is disabled in your browser, you see the non-JavaScript login page by default; logging in using this page places your data at risk of being intercepted in transit. If your browser supports SSL to encrypt data, you can log in through LiveJournal's secure site.

  • Partially Disabled: If JavaScript is partially disabled, you may receive errors because your browser is not loading LiveJournal's log-in JavaScript code properly. This could also cause an invalid password error on your first login attempt, but allow a second successful attempt.

From FAQ 211: Why do I receive errors when logging into LiveJournal? and replacing it with:

Enable SSL: Verify that your browser supports SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption and can load secure pages.
