After "infinite" looping one gets page: Error Bad Request Your client has issued a malformed or illegal request. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Log on Gmail (or attempt to). Actual Results: See above Expected Results: See above Similar problems with other public mail system. IE works fine on these mailsystems. Can be related to older bug 459643 ?
This bug "seems" to have been reported using an obsolete version of the Mozilla Suite from 2005. - Which build were you using when you had the problem? - When you enter about:config in the URL bar, hit Enter, then type "general.useragent" (without the quotes) in the Filter box, do you see any "user set" entries (and which ones if you do)? - Do you still have the problem in SeaMonkey 1.1.14? Also, there seems to be a typo in the bug URL. - Do you have the same problem at http://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=1 ?
Funny. This seems to be an installation issue. After updating to the newest Seamonkey from Dec 16, 2008 (about:) I had: SeaMonkey 1.1.14 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915 Mnenhy/0.7.2.0 After deleting general.useragent.override entry one has the proper version: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/20081204 SeaMonkey/1.1.14 But the problem persists. I tried to delete installation directory and install to a newly crated one, no change.
Well, it is somewhere in the profile - using a new clean profile solved the problem.
(In reply to comment #3) > Well, it is somewhere in the profile - using a new clean profile solved the > problem. Hm. If you're willing to try and find out what it was in your profile that made it not work, it might help other people to avoid the same pitfall.
It was a cookie problem; one of the servers was on the list of addresses that cannot set a cookie (while others were allowed). Just for those interested in the pitfalls they can fall into.
