Possible Solution - Firefox has detected that the serve

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

Ive had this come up quite a bit lately and did some searching on the net for a possible fix (gotta luv google)..... but seems like no-one has had much luck with it.

We've been doing a little research and playing with some of the settings within Firefox and have managed (for the moment) to get it working without any hiccups. This isn't a confirmed solution yet, but all indications are that it works.

Step 1 - Open up firefox, and in the address bar type in : about:config

Setp 2 - look for the entry "network.http.redirection-limit" It will have a defauilt value of 20. We have changed that to 50.

Step 3 - Click on the Tools Menu, then click Add-Ons. In the Extensions section, you will see the Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant 1.1 ---> disable it and restart Firefox when asked.

Thats it..

would luv to hear back from others who try this and if they are getting the same error message coming up
