When going to https://mozillians-dev.allizom.org/en-US/login, then specifying wrong login credentials, you just get redirected to the same site. We should display an error message in that case.
Agreed, that's just poor UX.
Priority: -- → P1
Target Milestone: --- → 1.0
We'll need a couple of use cases taken care of here:

* User enters an e-mail address that is not in the database.
* User enters the wrong password, but e-mail address is found in the database.
* User enters an invalid e-mail address that is not in the database.

The error message should be as generic as possible; otherwise people can find out the email addresses in the database by analyzing the error message provided. But yes, this should happen.

This is because we subclass the Authentication form improperly (my bad). Grabbing bug.
