Hi all,

So it's all about HTTPS.
Thanks Blake for the catch.
I can reproduce the bug on my computer too.
I opened an issue https://github.com/hotosm/osm-tasking-manager2/issues/735

For people who are using Chrome and are currently stuck, you can try
using HTTP. In order to do so, you may have to prevent Chrome from
redirecting automatically to HTTPS.

Regards,

Pierre
