When trying to Log in into HanseNet's (www.hansenet.de -> MyHanseNet) MyHanseNet, the browser refuses to load the page and displays an alert box that says "Redirection limit for this URL exceeded. Unable to load the requested page". Netscape 6.2.1 has no problems with the page. (Severity could have been "blocker", but I wasn't sure, for it could also be a settings-problem)

The default limit is 10 redirects. This page does more.... You could try setting: user_pref("network.http.redirection-limit", 50); and seeing whether that helps. You could also try enabling all cookies and seeing whether _that_ helps...
It redirects in a loop. http://w1.hansenet.de/hnet2001/1,1346,myhansenet_index,00.html https://w1.hansenet.de/hnet2001/1,1346,myhansenet_index,00.html /hnet2001/myhansenet/check_for_cookie/1,1503,myhansenet_index,00.html?cookie_name=my%5Fcookie https://w1.hansenet.de/hnet2001/1,1346,myhansenet_index,00.html Seems to be a problem on their end, not Mozilla's.
-> badami, yet another redirection limit reached bug. looks like this one is a regression from mozilla 0.9.4

Lynx sees the same redirection loop so this is probably a site problem.
not mozilla problem. site problem

After todays patch, my mozilla (2002031108) does the same for ALOT of sites. All cookies are accepted in my end. One site that do this is http://google.com/ Actually most major sites has this problem since my upgrade 10 minutes ago. Judging by the sites with problems, it could be a cookie thing.
Okay...think before you speak Jesper. Flushed all cookies from Mozilla. Didn't help. Then disabled cookie control in junkbuster. Didn't help. Then flushed cache AND cookies from Mozilla, Junkbuster and Squid. That helped. So I guess it isn't REALLY a Mozilla problem - although I would like to know what has changed since yesterday...

I'm also seeing this a few times today on www.nhl.com with RC1. Build ID 2002041711.
This also happens with Mac OS X RC1 Build ID: 2002041712 on this URL: <http://kbase.info.apple.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/kbase.woa/wa/query?searchMode=Assisted&type=id&val=KC.106206> The problem appears to be related to cookie settings. Also, tried the above URL with OmniWeb for Mac OS X and it loads up just fine. More info: It would appear that Mozilla is returning stale cookies. After successfully loading the page by clearing disk cache, clearing memory cache, deleting cookies and cookie preferences for kbase.info.apple.com, the site finally loaded the page. However, I then once again deleted the cookies and cookie preferences for kbase.info.apple.com and attempted to reload the page again with ask before setting cookie chosen. Mozilla then asked me if I wanted to accept another cookie for kbase.info.apple.com saying I ALREADY HAD 2 COOKIES from that site?! How could I still have two cookies? I clicked "No" to the accept cookie and checked the remember this decision box. The page still loaded!!! The only way that page could have loaded is if Mozilla sent the stale cookies back to the server. In Mozilla cookie preferences, there are still no cookies listed for kbase.info.apple.com. And it lists kbase.info.apple.com as not being able to set cookies. Something is wrong with Mozilla's cookie management.
I see this bug when going to http://www.nytimes.com/2002/04/27/science/27GENO.html but only if I have set my cookie preferences to "Enable Cookies based on Privacy Settings" where the Privacy settings are "Custom" and set to Reject Reject Reject Reject Reject Reject Accept Reject If I change the cookie preference to "Enable cookies for the originating website only" then I can successfully load the page (I already have a cookie for nytimes.com having registered previously.) Could this be an interaction between those privacy settings and the way the site is set up? I can try playing with the privacy settings to see if it makes a difference.

Just to give some idea when this sort of thing happened, I was having the same problem with most nytimes.com articles. Looking in the cookie manager, I discovered that I had 1 cookie for the site, but somehow had 'site cannot set cookies' set. Removing that allowed me to grab the second cookie that the site needed.
Dup of bug 141702?
