When I click "submit" to try to log onto AOL ( http://www.aol.com/ ), the browser goes into an endless reload, alternating between the pages: http://my.screenname.aol.com/_cqr/login/login.psp?siteId=aolcomprod&authLev=1&mcState=initialized and http://my.screenname.aol.com/_cqr/login/login.psp?siteId=aolcomprod This loop continues forever, and you never reach a logged in state. I am using Mozilla 0.9.9 milestone.
Do you see this with Mozilla 1.0RC1 ? Have you disabled cookies ?
The behavior is slightly different 1.0rc1. Instead of an endless loop, I get bumped back to a different login page: http://my.screenname.aol.com/_cqr/login/login.psp?siteId=aolcomprod&authLev=1&mcState=initialized&triedAimAuth=y And if I try to log in at this screen, I get the same screen again. This is probably the same behavior a user would see if they mis-typed their username or password, but I've re-tried it several times. I checked that cookies were on, and they were set to "originating web site only", so I set it to "accept all", but it still doesn't work, and then I noticed that in Netscape I also have it set to accept only from the originating web site, and it works fine, so that is not the problem. I also tried clearing out my cookies to let www.aol.com recreate them. Same behavior. This may be a bug in AOL's site, not in Mozilla, but I would assume that you guys would want the browser to work well with AOL...
Very similar to bug 132169.
RC1 says in status bar that it is trying to connect to 127.0.0.1 for awhile. Couldn't that be because of trying to get some auth via AOL Instant Messenger?
I had encountered this bug while trying to convince a friend to switch to Mozilla. She can login just fine on my computer using 1.0RC1 on Windows XP, but is kicked back to the login screen when she attempts it on her own computer with 1.0RC1 on Windows 98.
Can you please try a new profile ? run "mozilla -profilemanager" and create an ADDITIONAL test profile ?
I moved my .mozilla directory aside and created a new profile and I was able to successfully log in with 1.0rc1.
Correction... It works as long as I have "Accept all Cookies" set. If I set it to only accept cookies from the origination site only, I end up in the endless loop. This is still a problem, as I can use that setting just fine on other browsers (like Netscape). It just doesn't work in Mozilla.
Mozilla Build 2002041711: 09:30 May 5, 2002 Jim Webb email@example.com I have the same problem running on a PC with Windows XP. I go to the aol anywhere site: aol.com. I enter my logname and password, the system does some processing and returns me to the login screen. Once in about a dozen trys I got logged on. So, this problem may be intermittant. This does not happen when I use Netscape 4.7. On Netscape I get logged in, in the normal manner.

Is this still a problem with the latest trunk (or branch) builds? There were several significant cookie changes that went into the tree in the past few weeks.
Good news. It now works correctly for me with 1.0rc3.
thanks ! -> wfm
