Redirect loops on login to live mesh desktop RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I cannot log in to www.mesh.com. In any browser, the address bar indicates I am in a lengthy redirect loop between mesh.com and login.live.com. The URL continues to grow as repetitive parts are added to it. Example:

    https://login.live.com/login.srf?wa=wsignin1.0&rpsnv=10&checkda=1&ct=1240867889&rver=5.5.4177.0&wp=LBI&wreply=https:%2F%2Fwww.mesh.com%2FWeb%2F%3Fredir%3D%2FWeb%2Fdefault.aspx%3Fredir%253d%252fWeb%252fdefault.aspx%253fredir%25253d%25252fWeb%25252fdefault.aspx%25253fredir%2525253d%2525252fWeb%2525252fdefault.aspx%2525253fredir%252525253d%252525252fWeb%252525252fdefault.aspx%252525253fredir%25252525253d%25252525252fWeb%25252525252fdefault.aspx%252525252526wa%25252525253dwsignin1.0%2525252526wa%252525253dwsignin1.0%25252526wa%2525253dwsignin1.0%252526wa%25253dwsignin1.0%2526wa%253dwsignin1.0&lc=1033&id=255060

    Eventually it stops and gives a badly formed live.com log in page, where the left hand side shows the sign up panel but the right hand side shows an error. (Occasionally the browser detects an infinite loop and it stops giving a time out page or similar).

    I am on a Mac, and see this in Firefox 3 and in Safari.  I also have seen this on my PC in IE, Firefox and Chrome.

    Clearing the cache and cookies doesn't seem to help.

    Uninstalling live mesh and clearing cache, cookies, keychain, etc, may have helped at times but I don't have a enough full test cases to be sure.  I don't know of anything that reliably fixes this issue. 

    Cheers,
    Chris

  • Thanks for the note.  I will try again after the update.

    Note though, that this is an issue I have had for some time.  I'm not entirely sure they are connected.

  • When I see a LiveID site going through that issue, Chris, the solution is usually to close the browser and delete the Temporary Internet files and sometimes delete the cookies, too. That usually resolves it.

  • Hi Steve, thanks for that.  However, I seem to have solved the problem by installing Windows on my Mac =)

    That's one way to deal with it. :-)
