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):
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:
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.
