Interesting... I had a rare opportunity to use public wifi yesterday and had trouble connecting to it, which brought this thread to mind. I then realized that the sites i was trying to visit were all secure (https) sites, so I went to a random non-secure site and got the wifi login screen.

Try using http://ddg.gg as your home page. It's a redirector to https://duckduckgo.com, but since it's non-secure it may be enough to get you to the wifi login screen.
