Glitch with Import Game?

Unable to retrieve games that have been played on Lichess and stored in clipboard on my device last five days, the PGN appears in box but as soon as I try to import game it returns to homepage?, never had this issue before with this excellent site.

Cannot connect. In a loop.

I cannot connect since two days. It just goes into a loop; I cannot get a game!
I am connected to my account.
On my iPhone. Stop/start: it changes nothing.

Lichess is an amazing site, but it's been having issues lately.
Hopefully they get sorted out, it's by far the best site, I'm not going to leave it either way.

Works in Incognito (when you're not logged in) but when attempting to login, it's indefinitely spinning & displays Lichess timeout screen after a while. Cache and cookie clear unsuccessful, multiple browsers attempted. Unable to even access forums to report.
Mayday, mayday.

same today, 21-Sept-2022, as it happened in 08-Oct-2021: server is down for logged users, but works fine if you open it in a private (incognito) window.
