Steps to reproduce

Install RES extension (https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/extensions/)

You need two reddit accounts for this. One to sign into first and another to attempt to switch to.

  1. Sign into your first reddit account
  1. Open the extension settings (Menu -> Extensions -> RES -> Options)
  1. On the left hand side, go to My Account -> Account Switcher
  1. Click the “add account” button
  1. Add your second reddit accounts details here
  2. Click the “save options” button
  1. Select the account switcher button (snoo next to account name at top
    right of site)
  1. Select account to switch to.

Expected:
Current session is destroyed and you sign into selected account.

Actual:
Account switching fails.

Console output:
CONFLICT - The request could not be completed due to a conflict with the current state of the resource.
(XHR): POST - https://www.reddit.com/api/login?app=res

This only happens when a session is active. If you sign out completely and use the account switcher you sign into an account straight away. It appears to be an issue with extensions killing sessions/cookies.
