"Enable all cookies" option is checked, of course. AFAIR, The same thing was with 1.4RC1, 1.4RC3 and now the same is with the final realese. MSIE6.0 deals just fine with this url! Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Paste the URL into URL box; 2.Press enter ;)) 3.Get the message.... Actual Results: I got message about exceeding URL redirection limit Expected Results: Display the webpage (search engine in this case)

http://www.rlsnet.ru/opisdrug/TNSearch.php3 redirects to http://www.rlsnet.ru/opisdrug/ which redirects to http://www.rlsnet.ru/opisdrug/TNSearch.php3 Using wget and setting the user-agent Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030707 ->302 Found Mozilla/4.0 (compatible;MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1) -> 200 OK Works when setting general.useragent.override to Mozilla/4.0 (compatible;MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)
ok, i'm able to repro the problem now. sounds like it is just a bad server implementation if the problem can be fixed by spoofing IE's UA string. -> evangelism

Created attachment 127201 [details] URL redirect Log file I uploaded the log file nevertheless;)) Well, it repeats himself really many times;)) Whole 180K were compressed into just 7K;))
Same problem with http://www.bankofamerica.com/mybankofamerica I am using 1.4 final release.
From the site webmaster: we gave up supporting non-IE browsers (alas! - too little users, too many problems) some long time ago. There was a redirection trick implemented differently for IEs and non-IEs, and once non-IEs were given up, the trick eventually turned into the loop described. I fixed that. But anyway the way the site looks in say Opera makes me fly high. Use IEs - supporting non-IEs is not planned, if only Opera. Sorry for the inconveniences.
As trouble testcase here is an url lost in redirection loop http://www.metro.com/international.cfm/country=italy See also bug #208657
