    Default Can't login on Firefox! Get error: "The page isn't redirecting properly"

    I am unable to login to the forums on Firefox. When I try, it (correctly) goes to the Novell login screen, but after submit, it tries to load https://forums.opensuse.org/forum.php and the browser shows:

    Code:
    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.
    I cleared cookies for:
    • opensuse.org
    • attachmategroup.com
    • novell.com


    but it still doesn't work! Even trying in a private tab doesn't work! What can be done do to fix this?

    I get that redirection error sometimes, but in a different case (and it is in fact an old one, coming back now and then).

    The problem is that my knowledge goes no further then an advice to clear all cookies related to the forums, but you did that already

    When that has happened here, I have usually been able to login to the bugzilla. And, once that is done, I am usually able to access the forums.

    Shutting down "firefox" and restarting it will probably also work. Most of the cookies involved are session cookies which are not retained after the end of the session.

    My last ditch method, if even that fails, is to use konqueror.

    I tried restarting after clearing the cookies, still didn't work

    Novell uses a ton of cookies
    i had a similar issue a bit back

    just MAKE 100% SURE that "block deleted cookies from reinstalling " is disabled

    and delete the TWO different sets of cookies

    yes there are TWO sets of them
    novell sets 9 cookies
    suse sets 8 cookies
    Code:
    novell.com
    suse.com
    then relog in to novell and come over to the forum
