when trying to access my google Web Admin account it says the followuing .."Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete."

NOTE: it works in google chrome and IE10 - I have cleared the cache and cookies using CCleaner, I have not blocked or denied any cookies as I see thats common fault

I only just installed Firefox last night as I thought I would give it a try to compare against chrome.

Ive tried making sure allow cookies is enabled...always was, nothing in the 'exceptions' box

If clearing cookies doesn't work then it is possible that the cookies.sqlite file that stores the cookies is corrupted.

Rename (or delete) cookies.sqlite (cookies.sqlite.old) and delete other present cookie files like cookies.sqlite-journal in the Firefox profile folder in case the file cookies.sqlite got corrupted.

What I found out is that if you are using a bookmark/favorite to get to the page it might cause the problem. It is expecting to redirect to where one came from and that, in my case, is missing. If I navigate to the page, for example the sign in page, then all works fine because it will navigate back to the page that I came from.
