So i come home from work...and try to go on myspace. This is the error I get.


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.


I've looked on the web and gotten nothing. I tried I.E. It just times out and cant connect.

Now this is the fun part.

I clear cookies and go to myspace. I get to the page, and go to log on. Infinite Redirection.

I clear cookies and go to myspace. I log onto another account...fine.

I clear cookies try to log onto the other account. Infinite Redirection.

Oi...

Any ideas?

Undertake these steps at all your accounts :

Step 1

* Clean your Cache and Cookies in IE:

* Close all instances of Outlook Express and Internet Explorer
* Go to Control Panel > Internet Options > General tab
* Under Browsing History, click "Delete".
* Click "Delete Files", "Delete cookies" and "Delete history"
* Click Close below.

* Clean your Cache and Cookies in Firefox (In case you also have Firefox installed):

* Go to Tools > Options.
* Click Privacy in the menu..
* Click the Clear now button below.. A new window will popup what to clear.
* Select all and click the Clear button again.
* Click OK to close the Options window

* Clean other Temporary files + Recycle bin

* Go to start > run and type: cleanmgr and click ok.
* Let it scan your system for files to remove.
* Make sure Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are the only things checked.
* Press OK to remove them.


Step 2
Download and scan with SUPERAntiSypware Free for Home Users

* Double-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
* An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
* If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Udates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download and unzip them from here.)
* When done, select "Scan for Harmful Software".
* There are three scanning options. Choose "Perform Complete Scan" and click "Next".
* When done, a Scan Summary will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
* Make sure they all have a checkmark next to them and click "Next".
* A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
* Click Preferences and then click the statistics/logs tab.
* Click the dated log and press View log. A text file will appear so you can see the results.
* Select close to exit the program.
* Scan in SAFE MODE

This appears to be a Myspace problem that should be fixed sometime today.
Have a look at this Thread in the Firefox Forum.

I'm getting the same deal. Started acting up last night a little bit. I'm going to wait a while and hope it's a problem on myspace's end. x.x

Directly from the Firefox Forum,they are recommending this fix;
Go to Tools/ Options/ Privacy and click on Show Cookies.... remove anything that is related to myspace.

Note .. Firefox keeps its cookies in a different place to IE
It is not harmful to use the cookie manager.

Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
