I have never had this problem. Does it occur on one of the recent 0.8 branch builds using a clean profile?
In reply to comment #0: I can confirm this bug: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8 When I call our intranet-page (http://intranet.mycompany.com), I am first redirected to a page (http://intranet.mycompany.corp:1080) which in turn redirects me to another page (https://webserver1.muc.mycompany.corp). I traced this with HTTPLook. Firebird stops after the first redirect displaying the following message: ***snip*** Redirect Description: The document you requested is now <a href="http://intranet.mycompany.corp:1080/">http://intranet.mycompany.corp:1080/ </a>. Please update your documents and bookmarks accordingly. ***snap*** Reproducible: Always !
worksforme with 20040425 Firefox on winXP. I've tested logging in to Hotmail about a dozen times with this build and haven't seen the problem once.
