Impossible to display some tumblr sites

Unread postby muselato » Sun, 06 Aug 2017, 06:07

If I try to display some tumblr sites under safe mode I obtain only a notification
The page isn't redirecting properly
Pale Moon 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.

and that's all. The URL of the concerned sites has "tumblr.com/#_=_" in its end in the URL bar. I have no problem to access that sites with other browsers. This behaviour has started to occur after I updated Pale Moon from 27.4.0 to 27.4.1 (from the repository for Debian and Ubuntu).

Clear your cookies. That will likely solve this problem.

Well, the curious behaviour strangely appeared and strangely disappeared. I even didn't touch the cookies or anything else, at least I am not aware of any my deliberate intervention.

Perhaps as a result of using the website again when you did the cookie problem was then replaced/corrected.

I get this frequently at Spanish Flashcards. Usually I just wait and the problem corrects itself. But when it happened tonight, I tried deleting all the cookies associated, as suggested in this thread, and it worked. I have complained to the webmaster, but he claims there is nothing wrong at his end.
