I am running into an issue whenever a user tries to log in to our site (Sitefinity 5.4) when the user has Arabic set as the default language in his browser. The stack trace is:

System.FormatException: String was not recognized as a valid DateTime.   at System.DateTimeParse.Parse(String s, DateTimeFormatInfo dtfi, DateTimeStyles styles)   at System.DateTime.Parse(String s, IFormatProvider provider, DateTimeStyles styles)   at Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.Claims.ClaimsResolver.ParseSitefinityClaims(ClaimCollection claims, String& tokenId, Guid& userId, String& name, String& membership, DateTime& issueDate, DateTime& lastLoginDate, IEnumerable`1& roles, Boolean& isUnrestricted, Boolean& isBackendUser)   at Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.Claims.ClaimsIdentityProxy.Initialize(IClaimsIdentity identity)   at Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.Claims.ClaimsPrincipalProxy.Initialize(IClaimsPrincipal principal, String primaryIdentityLabel)   at Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.Claims.ClaimsResolver.GetPrincipal(HttpContext context)   at Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.Claims.SitefinityClaimsAuthenticationModule.OnPostAuthenticateRequest(Object sender, EventArgs e)   at System.Web.HttpApplication.SyncEventExecutionStep.System.Web.HttpApplication.IExecutionStep.Execute()   at System.Web.HttpApplication.ExecuteStep(IExecutionStep step, Boolean& completedSynchronously)

Does anyone know of a fix for this, other than setting another language as default?

Hello Josh,

This issue should be fixed in Sitefinity 6.0 release. Here is a link to the release notes:

And here is an excerpt from 6.0 release notes:
Unable to authenticate when the culture is set to "ar" (Arabic)
