Description

13 years ago
I am developing a web site using PHP, Apache and MySql. I received the message:

Redirection Limit for this URL exceeded. Unable to load the requested page. This
may be caused by cookies that are blocked.

It is a http://localhost connection and I tried deleting cookies and still
cannot contiunue. I also had the same error on a page for my superannuation
company, gave up and used IE and it worked no problems. Is there a fix for this
as I love firefox and dont want to ever go back to MSIE.

Cheers

Craig

The error message means that the website has redirected too many times.  In case
of a redirection loop, this serves as upper bound for how many times the browser
will try to follow redirections.

Are you still getting the error with the site you're developing?

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.

To see how Firefox is navigating through the redirects, install the LiveHTTPHeaders extension (http://livehttpheaders.mozdev.org). Once installed, start it from the Tools menu and go to the site that is causing the issue. After it gives you the error, you can look at the LiveHTTPHeaders window and see exactly what is happening.

If you require more assistance using the extension, feel free to ask.
