"Sign in to start talking" and "Or talk as anonymous" buttons don't work


When, without being logged in, one loads a Rocket.Chat instance in a web browser and proceeds to a channel, the “Sign in to start talking” and “Or talk as anonymous” buttons do not work at all. Clicking on them does nothing. I have noticed this bug since at least version 5.3.0.
