    Default Firefox problem

    Keep getting this message when trying to log into the VHlinks with firefox...



    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.




    Happening on 2 old laptops and a PC at work, but not on a new HP laptop that I use for work.



    Any ideas out there? That cookie stuff is all Greek to me.

    Cleared my cookies and if seems to have fixed the problem. Had to do it all all devices though.

    Odd.

    I cleared out all my cookies and the only thing that happened was I got a belly ache and gained 5 lbs.

    This Firefox thing is pissing me off since it's just the vhlinks doing it.

    My settings are all fucked up from trying to adjust for just one site and I'm considering leaving Firefox for good. They are not the same as they were 5 years ago, in my opinion.

    Firefox's sync can kiss my ass too... after it imported all the shit from my home computer to my work PC. Thanks fuckers.

    OK... I give up!

    I just happened on Chrome now. I really think the problem is on the links end... but of course no one else is having the problem. Been down this road before.

    i'm wondering if it's one of the ads that's localised to you, which if it is, not sure what you can do about that

    I'm using IE now to see if it happen there also.

    Once I cleared the VHlinks cookies in Chrome, it worked again. Same with Firefox... but they keep coming back.

    I know what it is. It's the Facebook connect on the site I'm going to turn it off if I can.

    Ok solved it was the Facebook connect option on the site. Facebook messed with something today, so it screwed up ALL the vBulletins out there. I've turned it off until I can get it solved. But we're back normal.

    Sorry about that.

    Awesome! Thanks Brett. Sorry if I sounded a little frustrated in post #6... but I was. My poor Firefox is sore from messing with the settings all day.

    & Thanks Greenpaw for the temp. fix. That worked for the problem but brought along a lot of log in issues for every other site out there that's visited. It did clear up the links issue though.

    I tried using Tapatalk on my phone last night... and seriously don't see how folks can do the links like that all the time. I'm an old school keyboard and screen kinda guy I guess.

    Yeah I didn't know about it until I happened to go on the computer or it would have been fixed sooner. I thought it was my settings too.
