I am running Linux Mint 5, which is based on Ubuntu 8.04.4 LTS. This week I am experiencing the following error message from Firefox 3.0.17 when I try to access localhost:
Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.
The browser has stopped trying to retrieve the requested item. The site is redirecting the request in a way that will never complete.

I think Linux Mint recently updated to kernel 2.6.24-27 and Firefox was recently upgraded to version 3.0.17. It was after one of these upgrades that I could no longer access xampp.
This morning, I downloaded xampp 1.7.3a and replaced the same version which I had made by upgrading from 1.7.2. I restored all of my previous .conf and .ini files. mysql works from the command line and all of the databases are still there. PHP 5 works to the extent of telling me that it is version 5.3.1. I can restart xampp from the command line, but still get the error from Firefox.
Since I am on the road, that is all the info I have about solving the problem. Can anyone help, anyway?
