Is something wrong with 'Ask Fedora' in private window? It asks user to register when click on 'Hi there! Please sign in'.

AskFedora for sure could use an upgrade (it's still running on AskBot from the end of 2014), but what you're describing is probably intended behaviour. Ask Fedora is configured (at least since I registered) to use only federated sign up / sign in, so you can login the same way you registered (using FAS).

You can manage (add, re-validate, remove) your login methods (providers) here: https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/acco...
