My browser is giving me trouble, when I try to open a page I get this message..... Safari cannot open page because too many redirects occurred...
I also have Maven but not really a big fan. Can someone help me fix this problem or maybe another browser...
I just realized this is only happening on Facebook

From the Apple website.
"When trying to view a website using Safari, you may see the alert message: "Could not open the page. Too many redirects occurred trying to open (website name)." This may occur if you open a page that is redirected to open another page, which is then redirected to open the original page."
They suggest resetting Safari - so here we go......
The easiest first way to try to solve ‘unexplained’ or ‘unusual’ problems with the iPad are:-
Force the offending app to close. If you have iOS 4.2 or 4.3 double-press the ‘Home’ button to bring up the multi-task bar at the bottom of the screen. Press *and hold* any icon until they start to ‘jiggle’. Then tap the top left-hand corner of the app that you want to close. It will ‘disappear’ from the list. Don’t panic - you’ve not deleted it, just closed it. Now tap the Home screen and the multi-task bar will disappear. Re-open the iPad’s app and see if the problem has resolved itself. If not, it’s on to possible solution number two!!
Restart the iPad. Press *and hold* the Power button. After a couple of seconds a slider control will appear asking you to confirm that you really want to switch the iPad off (this is all you’ll be doing). Slide the control to accept. A rotating white ‘bezel’ will appear in the iPad screen as the iPad powers down (it takes a few seconds, just like it would if you were shutting down your PC). When the screen of the iPad has gone completely blank, press *and hold* the Power button for a couple of seconds until the white Apple logo appears and the iPad starts to power up. This takes several seconds, so be patient. During the power up the automatic screen orientation function is disabled, so don’t panic. A few seconds before the power up is complete, the iPad plays a little ‘jingle’ and then you’re back to the Home screen. Restart the iPad’s app and see if the problem persists. Apple (and Forum members) recommend that you power down your iPad at least once a week, just as you might regularly completely switch off your PC. The normal procedure of just briefly pressing the Power button of the iPad merely puts it to ‘sleep’. Most Forum members have found that one of the two methods I’ve mentioned here cure a whole bunch of unexplained problems and are an easy first step to resolving most anything that happens on the iPad.
Thanks so much, it's fixed!!!!
I copy this info onto my notes, so I can find it again... I can only do things like this if I have step by step info... So thanks again
Too many redirects can't open page
I have first generation I pad. Signed up for iplayboy.com which is not an app as this one circumvents apples use
Of policing what they deem we should view. I can access it from my Mac but not iPad, as it keeps coming up with
too many redirects and I can't access. I tried shutting down completely but doesn't seem to correct this. Any suggestions?
Thanks for any help.....
Hi Tim, I also have this problem only with one web page that I cannot open. I have tried everything that you have said above and it still coming up with the same message ' Safari cannot open the page because too many redirects occurred'. I have the iPad 2, when it first happened I logged off completely and it fixed the problem, but now it doesn't , do you have any other suggestions?
