    I'm a new internet customer and created an account several days ago. Each time I try to log in I get the following error:

    We're sorry, something didn't work quite right. Please try again. IDCE-1013.

    When I try again the log in is successful. Try chat but you apparently never get to an agent. Anyone have any idea what might be causing this?

    Thanks.

      It may be an issue with Firefox. Can you attempt to reproduce the error on Chrome or Edge?

      Thanks for the update. Sounds like you had an older or outdated page bookmarked. The bookmarked page was likely throwing an error, which caused the page to loop back to the login screen a second time. If you like, you can bookmark https://www.spectrum.net/login. Let us know if the issue returns, and glad to hear the issue appears to be resolved!

      Hello! Welcome to the Community!

      Does this happen at Spectrum.net and the App? If you are a video subscriber does this happen with Spectrum Video login as well or just the Spectrum.net.

    • Thanks! I don't have the app so it's only happening via the web page. I'm just an internet subscriber.

      Have you tried clearing your cache and cookies? Make sure you’re using chrome as well

      I'm running Firefox on Windows 10. Clearing cache and cookies did not help. I'd prefer not to change browsers. Why would Chrome be required to log into a common company website?

      When you registered, did you receive a verification email? Access may be restricted until you have verified the account.

      I had already created my account by the time I received an email to "set up your account". Maybe the order in which I did things has screwed things up. But just to be clear, it's the first attempt to log in that fails. I immediately try again and it succeeds. In both cases there's a lot of screen flashing 'working' indicators - pretty ugly.

      Have tried it several times with Edge and it worked fine. So thanks to James_M.for pointing the finger at Firefox.

      I switched from Firefox to Edge to use a built-in browser and save space by removing Firefox. Edge did work the other day but does not now. It's a Spectrum bug in my opinion. No big deal if I have to log in twice I guess.

      I use Edge. And this happens to me. I have done all of the above and I still receive it. Its been happening for at least a year now. So, its not just Edge vs FireFox.

      As I mentioned above, it's not critical but certainly a bit strange.

      am I to understand from the responses that Chrome and Edge are the only spectrum supported browsers? I'd really prefer not to use either of those, and have been using Safari for years on my mac.

      Spectrum.net is supported on Safari, I've included a link as well as the currently supported versions. The OP was having an issue on Firefox, and trying a different browser is just a suggested step to troubleshooting.

      Hello @beachgirl,

      The full list of supported browsers is here https://www.spectrum.net/support/internet/system-and-access-requirements-spectrumnet-and-watch-tv-services/ and it does show you can use Safari 11 or newer.

      Just for the record, I now can't log into my Spectrum account, even on the second try. Today the first try shows the following error on a separate page:

      This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.

      <status>

      <status_code>500</status_code>

      <message>Forwarding error for request URI = /sign-in-redirect ,VIP = null and Host(s) = consumer.blue.spectrum.net:443</message>

      </status>

      The second and subsequent login attempts clear the page and show a spinning circle until I give up after 4-5 minutes. I'm using Edge Version 94.0.992.38 (Official build) (64-bit).

      When you log in to your account, are you going to https://www.spectrum.net/login ?

      No, I was going to another bookmarked login page. When I use the address you posted it works the first time and, so far, subsequent times as well. So looking much better. Will see how it goes and report any future issues. Thank you for the suggestion.

      Yes, I bookmarked the new link after testing it out a few times. Still good this morning. Thanks again.
