Description

I've noticed that when I log in, I somehow find myself in the password change dialog / page, even though I've only recently changed my password.

Log in to what? What are the exact steps that land you there? Note that if you visit https://auth.documentfoundation.org (as opposed to being redirected there) you see the password prompt indeed, along with the OAuth2 grants. This is intentional.

Log in to what?

To RedMine (hence the bug category). But it's really to everything, via the auth subdomain.

Next time this happens I'll try to write down exact reproduction instructions, but basically - if you've logged in, and go back to the window without the login, and reload - you do not (necessarily) appear as logged in, and when clicking the Sign In link, you get to the auth website, to the password changing dialog.

I don't think that dialog should be the thing you see by default, anyways.

Changing the category then. And the Subject, if that's not reproducible.

The instructions are unclear to me, but I can't reproduce this. In a new browser session:

Do you have a browser extension that might block the redirect? Is there an error message showing up in your browser console?

auth.documentfoundation.org is an authentication platform, nothing more.

One way to reproduce the missing redirect, is to enter wrong credentials. In a new browser session:

Doesn't seem to be what you're describing though.
