Question about Mozilla Firefox

1 Answer

The page isn't redirecting properly

When using facebook I regularly get the following message - The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

* This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept
cookies.

I have tried cleaning out cookies, changed settings on cookies (it is nothing to do with not accepting cookies), re installed firefox and nothing has worked. Sometimes I have no problems and it works fine for a period of time but most of the time all I get is the message. I cant understand why it works one minute and not the next.

I had the same message and problem. Went to Options > Privacy > Remove individual cookies. Select Netflix in the list and Remove Cookies. I reloaded the netflix page and it seemed to correct the problem. I did have to log back into the Netflix site though. everything seems to be working fine now.

Chances are:
  1. You have not enabled cookies in your browser. Cookies are like your ID card. If you dont give the site your ID card,it would not allow you to next page. See this link on how to enable cookies in your browser
  2. The site might have broken pages,which would not know what to do next. Your browser would ask for the next page,but it would not be present in server.
As with Facebook,the problem no.2 would not be possible. So better clear your history and cookies.
Cheers!!

My facebook is block. I don't now what is problem ? Error is on the every page. Onle wen I come from my computer,internet is ok. Please help.


You can try a number of different solutions which have worked for some people:

Solution 1...
Clear your cache and delete all of your cookies in your browser.

Solution 2...
In your browser, type in the address bar http://www.facebook.com/login (which doesnt exist)
This will take you to a different login page which reads: "The page you requested was not found."
At the top of this page is a login box. Try using this login box to login to facebook.
.
Solution 3...
Download Firefox 3.5 and used that instead of Internet Explorer.
here is the link for downloading it
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/personal.html
.
Tip: If you are using the Adblock extension with Firefox, and subscribe to an ad list (basically a list of known ads online), it blocks a special site (fbcdn.net)
that Facebook uses to login.
.
Tip: Go to: http://www.facebook.com/login.php (the page you are having trouble logging in) and click on the
Adblock Stop Sign on top of Firefox, and you will see in red a url that includes
fbcdn.net. Right click on that, and add an exception for the entire fbcdn.net domain.
Reload the page. This should fix the problem.
.
Solution 4...
Use a Proxy Server to connect to Facebook.com
1. Search Proxy in GOOGLE
2. Select Proxy Server
3. Type in facebook.com (in the proxy server webpage)
4. login into facebook account
5. (although all games will work but Farmville may have problems loading)
.

Can't log onto facebook.com keeps giving error message - link broken - DNS server cannot be found. Also auto redirects facebook.com to lite.facebook.com.


Here is my advice : Just go to www.microsoft.com and download internet explorer again and install it , then reboot your system . I'm sure that this will solve the problem . any way , why don't you try other internet communication softwares like ( firefox or google chrome) those both are great also . I advice you to have more than one internet communication software . I already have three just in case if one of them is corrupted . I have ( Internet explorer and firefox and google chrome ) . just try the idea and you'll be satisfied with the result .
good luck .

Continually redirecting farmville


I don't think it is a browser problem.

This may sound scary but do the following
- go to http://www.facebook.com/editapps.php

- click on the X next to farmville

- application removed, click OK

- go to farmville application again, it will ask for access again, click allow

- You will be back to your farm as you left it and no redirecting problems.....
