The page isn’t redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

    This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

Expected results:

I should be able to get on the website and Firefox should automatically log me into Skype. Clearing the website's cookies doesn't help the problem at all.

Not severity=blocker by definition:

Does the problem still happen if you start Firefox in Safe Mode? (Safe Mode disables extensions and themes, hardware acceleration and some JavaScript stuff in order to exclude some possible reasons for problems. It does not disable plugins which are add-ons.) See 

And does this also happen with a new and empty profile? See and

I can also reproduce the infinite redirect loop on Google Chrome Dev54 as well as Nightly51.0a1.
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:51.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/51.0

I have tested this issue on Windows 10 x64 with the latest Firefox release (48.0.2) and the latest Nightly (51.0a1-20160908030434) and could not reproduce it.
After loading the link provided in the description and signing in to skype, I'm redirected to the desired page in about 10-20s. However, after testing this multiple times, I've observed that sometimes it takes up to 1 minute and 30 seconds until it finally redirects me to the page.

Can you please retest this and see how long does it take until it finally redirects you to the desired page?
