Recently, I upgraded to Firefox 38.0 beta version. Now when I am use Firefox to get to AOL.... on many of the links to new stories I get this 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."

The problem is that ....I can access some news stories by clicking on AOL links but on others I can't. If my computer wasn't accepting cookies then wouldn't it fail to connect to ALL AOL links? Plus this seems to be a problem on with the new version of Firefox. I can still access stories on AOL if I use Chrome. But I don't wan to use Chrome if I don't have to. Not amused on bit.
