I have 16 unsaved edits. When I tried to save, OSM pop-uped a new window asking me to login. So I did. But then had some error and redirected me for a page saying to contact OSM. Well, now my edit tab is blocked from doing anything. I can't save my edits.

The save button still seems to be active. Do you get any error message? Does it show you to be logged in in the top right hand corner?

Well, I can't click on the save button though. It's blocked. No, I only got a error message when I tried to login on the window which OSM pop-uped. When I put the mouse over the save button it says me to review my changes... Yes, it shows my nickname on the top right.

Can you provide your OSM username?

It's Lunatica.

I have no real solution to your problem, but maybe a way to recover your work. Before you discard everything you could try one thing: Click on the Open Street Map logo/text on the top left to go back to the regular map. Then klick on edit again. If things go well you will then be asked to restore your unsaved changes.

@TZorn I tried messing up with the HTML, but was tired and just ended up discarding my edits. Your proposed workaround could work, but I can't test it now. Anyway, thanks for your helping! I'll mark your answer as accepted.
