When I visit the above web page, it seems to pause for a long time and
eventually come up with a message saying that the redirection limit is exceeded
and it could not load the web page, and that it might be something to do with
blocked cookies.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.visit the above page
2.wait
3.

Actual Results:  
error message

Expected Results:  
load page

tested on netscape 7.1, safari, and IE/mac and they all work fine (netscape
working was a suprise).
So have you blocked cookies somehow?

Look under Preferences-> Advanced-> Privacy & Security->Cookies
and
Preferences-> Advanced-> Scripts and Plugins 
(allow scripts to "create or change cookies")

I don't have 'Privacy & Security' under 'Advanced'.

and I don't have 'allow scripts to 'create or change cookies'' under 'Scripts
and plugins' either.

I do have a Privacy&Security/Cookies panel that has 'Cookie Acceptance Policy'
set to 'Allow cookies based on privacy settings' and the privacy settings are
'medium'.

Hrm. I decided to try the other options, after first confirming it still was
broken....and it worked first time :(

Hrm. It still doesn't work in Firefox though. I'll try to change this to firefox.

In Firefox/Preferences/Privacy/Cookies, I have 'Enable Cookies' and 'Accept
Cookies' normally both checked.

I'll bet a cookie that this bug's a duplicate of bug 236772 (Sprint Local Bill
Redirection Limit Exceeded), which was fixed early in June (after the date of
the build with which you reported the bug).  I don't know enough to mark this as
a dup with complete certainty, tho, so I'll leave it to someone else.

Reporter, the fix for that bug is in Mozilla 1.7 and Firefox 0.9 and 0.9.1, so
it would be helpful if you could test with a newer build and report back.  If
you can't reproduce with a new profile, either I can mark this as a duplicate
for you or you can do it yourself.  If you *can* reproduce it, just comment back
and hopefully we'll get to the bottom of this soon.

Tried 0.9 and 0.9.1 and cannot reproduce.
