Avoid Reddit's "Bad request" page using ServiceConnect["Reddit"]?

GROUPS:

I'm sure there's some really simple thing I'm overlooking. When I enter this:

ServiceConnect["Reddit"]

...the WolframConnector dialog comes up, as expected. When I click the "Sign in to Reddit" button, Reddit opens to a "BAD REQUEST" page, with this message:

you sent an invalid request — invalid redirect_uri parameter.

I never even get a chance to sign in. Am I overlooking something, or is there an option in Preferences somewhere that needs tweaking? Maybe a port the firewall is blocking? I'm stumped. I'm not doing anything fancy to get to Reddit. No VPN, no external router, nothing but the hotspot on my phone. I can generally access all of Reddit's services through Waterfox with no problem. I just can't connect Mathematica (Home Edition, 11.1.0) to Reddit.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Yes this was a known bug, but it is fixed now. You can try connecting again to see the result. enter image description here

Thanks! Yes, it seems to be working now.

I'm off to analyze my Reddit history. This should be interesting.
