Confirming, moving to Core.

This may be a duplicate of bug 268483. A redirection limit exceeded error is reported by necko in the same way as a connection failure, and the fix for bug 268483 may very well have solved this bug too.
After some testing, I determined that this is indeed a duplicate. My test consisted of setting up an Apache server with a CGI script that redirects infinitely to itself. I then setup a HTML page that links to the CGI script. I hosted the HTML page on a http:// link and the CGI script on a https:// link. In firefox 1.0, I can reproduce the problem, but with a recent aviary 1.0.1 branch build, the problem does not exist. Therefore, I conclude that this is a dupe. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 268483 ***
