Persona is Shutting Down
Mozilla has announced that Persona will be shutting down November 2016. django-browserid relies on the Persona service and will stop functioning properly once Persona is shut down. While it is possible to self-host Persona and configure django-browserid to rely on your own instance, this is difficult and not recommended. See the wiki page linked above for recommended alternatives to Persona for authentication.
First, check out the troubleshooting section of the documentation, which covers solutions to several common problems.
If that doesn't help, questions can be sent to the #webdev channel on irc.mozilla.org, or by email to the current maintainer.
