The blog whose URL we changed in ticket 2068 is throwing an error for the user. Here's his report:

I’m getting the following error message, both on my mac at home and my pc at the office – firefox on both:

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

On both machines, I use the default settings on firefox for cookies, and I haven’t encountered a similar error message for any other sites I visit, some of which require cookies.

I just tried the site as a logged-in admin and as a non-logged-in user on a private browser window and didn't experience this. Thoughts?

Works OK for me too. It's possible that the user is not using the correct URL? Maybe try a different browser?
