accounts-ui Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'parentNode' of null #4485

I made a very simple login:

{{> loginButtons}}

Packages used:


My Account.config:

    sendVerificationEmail: false,
    forbidClientAccountCreation: true,
    loginExpirationInDays: null  // Expires never
    passwordSignupFields: 'USERNAME_ONLY'

I got an exception in console:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'parentNode' of null accounts-ui-unstyled.js?14a3fc68e1a01e2a5a37fa082ac84346e46ba1de:1777

Maybe my error, but I made a very simple account handling (just a tester app for local packages).

I got this error only on my Cordova APP using meteor run android-device --mobile-server ...
Device: Huawei Mate 7
Android 4.4.2

We no longer support IE7, and a user reported that this function threw
in some context.  Might as well just delete the code.  See #4485.

Please provide a full reproduction as described in: Without a way to replicate your problem, we can't debug and fix it. In addition to not providing a cloneable repo, you didn't actually say what action you did (clicking a link?) that caused the exception to occur.

That said, it looks like the error happened in some IE7 workaround code, which I've taken the liberty of deleting as we no longer support IE7.

I tried to reproduce it, but without success.
