Thanks to cor-el for the suggestion given in the link. Sadly I have to report: 1) It is not a bookmark problem and it makes no difference whether I put www.adobe.com or 192.150.18.117 in the address bar. 2) Cookies are allowed and there are no exceptions set 3) All cookies have been deleted 4) network.http.sendRefererHeader is already set to 2

That deals with the items in the linked document. Additional information:

5) I can get into the adobe site from a clean "in memory" installation of PuppyLinux using Seamonkey using the same router and dhcp setup.

6) un-installing all Mozilla products - rebooting and re-installing makes no difference even when I remove the mozilla folder from docs&settings.

so as I said in previous post (as annonymous) not a lot makes sense.

Bear in mind that I have no problem running tracert in a command window Tracing route to www.adobe.com [192.150.18.117] over a maximum of 30 hops:

Trace complete.

and I can ping the site.

so where now ?

I have this problem too, but only for one site - a survey site. It used to be ok, and then the address/survey invites started to get the word 'router' in e.g. - here is part of one of their links https://router.globalopinionpanels.com/Routing/start......... I have explained to them by e-mail that the page won't load whatever I do [I do accept their cookies] and they cannot seem to grasp what I mean I do think it is something that FF does

@ mazbeth Re: Posted December 31, 2010 4:39:48 AM PST:

I just thought I would mention I can get into the site you mention https://router.globalopinionpanels.com

Maybe you need to check the part you are trying to access still exists, and is infact an open area that you would be allowed access to.

You can try to increase the redirection limit as a test.

Sorry, both should have been mozillaZine KB links. I fixed up that first mozillaZine KB link wrongly (I save such links as [network.http.redirection-limit] in a text file)

Should be:

I had the same problem and what I did was I disable my anti-virus safe search and then enable it again and i got it to work again. At first I also tried what cor-el was posting and it didn't work also.

I invariably get this message when someone has sent me a link to a news story that has the /print directive at the end -- IOW, the person who sent me the link had been viewing it in a "printable" format. The problem is, most news services generate those printable pages on the fly, and the settings are particular to that person.

When I copy the URL, remove the /print section, and then click on the URL, I get sent to the page with no problems.
