Mozilla suite issue

  1. Suddenly today, I cannot access my bank's web page from mozilla suite.
    I get a "Redirection for this URL exceeded. Unable to load requested page. This may be caused by cookies that are blocked."

    I have not changed anything in my browser and I have double-checked. Cookies are enabled.

    I AM able to access it from IE. But I hate using internet explorer.

    The wonderful IT department of your bank made some changes to their website and didn't bother to check with anything but IE maybe?

    Do you have any other software that may be blocking cookies? Web traffic scanning is all the rage in firewall and anti-virus suites.

    In the address bar type about:config, hit Enter. Search for network.http.redirection-limit, it's probably set to 20 at the moment, try raising it to 30;

    network.http.redirection-limit. (Integer) The value entered here specifies the maximum number of redirects that can be attempted consecutively, e.g. after replying in a forum you may be redirected to your response. As noted in Bug 153888 the default value has been increased from 10 to 20 (on account of nytimes.com). While you may prefer to decrease this value to avoid exploitation by certain sites, it may be necessary to increase the value in order for some to work. If this is the case an error page stating Redirection limit for this URL exceeded ought to appear.

    nope- no software blocking cookies. I checked with the bank this afternoon and they seem to have fixed the problem. The problem was on the bank's end as I tried using mozilla suite on another computer.

    I wish businesses would stop using IE specific code.
