I having a problem with a site called Wrestling Forum. I get the 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."

I deleted the cookies folder and the site loads but when I login it does it again.

I did that already. The site works after removing the cookies but when I login to the site, I get the message again.

I did the clearing the cache thing you suggested too. Didn't work either.

Did you check the other links that I posted above?

You may need to enable third-party cookies: Third-party cookies and Firefox tracking protection

What are the cookie settings? To see all the History and Cookie options, select: Tools > Options > Privacy > History: Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history"

Do you have security software (firewall) that can block cookies?

Yes I did. I did everything they suggested.

Third-party cookies are enabled. Always have been.

I have no firewall but the default Windows Firewall.

The site worked fine until this morning. About 10 AM EST.

Can I get some help here?

Does no one know how to fix this?

I downloaded the Firefox 4 beta thinking maybe that could fix it but it didn't.

Please someone help.
