Default page not redicrecting properly with firefox

Hello
I tried to go to the following link using firefox

http://winqual.microsoft.com/

and i got the following error 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.



* This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept
cookies.

can you guys tell me what to do?

It honestly could be b/c its a M$ site. They only like IE browsers, so they leave out FF compatability codes on sites...

Still testing issue....

That's probably true. Microsoft must hate Mozilla Firefox.

Although, my Internet Explorer browser can't load that page either.

I use firefox, and you'r right it won't redirect correctly. I tried it in ie and it works just fine.

I read somewhere that firefox 1.9 (if that ever came out) Has better redirecting support.
