I have been running into this strange issue. After installing my 5.5 authoring instance using the quickstart jar, logging in brings me to the landing page that that I see appears to be incorrect. The icons appear to be missing and the landing page isnt the one that I am expecting....seems dated (I have done trail installs of earlier builds of 5.5 and I never saw this screen). I tried clearing my cache, and re-installed my authoring instance, but I still get the same landing page.....Has anyone experienced this, and if so, how were you able to fix this?
after installing a new version of CQ you must clear your browser cache.
I did try clearing my browser cache before running the jar to extract the jar. Do I need to run it again when the browser pops up the login screen? seems kind of strange that I have to do that....
