Description Dennis P. Costea Jr. 2005-02-14 14:24:06 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
Previously received an error message regarding site access being
denied because a Cookie couldn't be set, but I looked at my settings
and Edit > Preferences > "Allow  sites to set cookies" is checked.  I
found it strange that a Netscape/Mozilla authored browser IS unable to
access a Netscape owned/operated website.

Exact error message, reproduced on the "Edit My Page" link is:
"Redirection limit for this URL exceeded. Unable to load the requested
page. This may be caused by cookies that are blocked."

Happened on URL:

Today I also received an error message, "Sorry, Webpage Designer is
not supported on your Browser" which simply further supports the
Firefox browser's non-functionality with this web site.

URL of this message:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Sign-in with a valid account to http://mywebpage.netscape.com/
2. Click the "Edit My Page" link
3. Error message is displayed.

Second error message occurs on:
1. http://mywebpage.netscape.com/
2. Click "Edit" (stylized button) near "Edit Your Page".
3. Then click "Open an existing page" on the following page.
4. (following page is: http://mywebpage.netscape.com/_fm/)

Actual Results:  Disappointment.  Just wanted to update an old online
resume with a new address.

Expected Results:  I expected the browser to be able to handle this
site.  Perhaps it is an AOL-technology driven page (.adp) not
previously tested with Mozilla technology.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
