Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7

When I am redirected to one page that redirects me to another page, Firebird
stops after the first redirect. This is Javascript only because the content of
the page still loads.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to a webpage that redirects twice (like Hotmail, or a vBulletin page)

Actual Results:  
Firebird stops after redirecting only once.

Expected Results:  
Redirected all the way through.

This happens about 90% of the time.
I have never had this problem.  Does it occur on one of the recent 0.8 branch
builds using a clean profile?

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.
