Description Philippe Mouawad 2016-04-26 19:18:23 UTC
Currently default value is 5.
This value is too low and does not reflect modern behaviour of browsers:
- http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9384474/in-chrome-how-many-redirects-are-too-many


Chrome 49, 21 redirects
Chrome Canary 49, 21 redirects
Chrome Canary 51, 21 redirects
Firefox 43, 20 redirects
Firefox 45, 20 redirects
IE 8, 11 redirects (webpagetest.org)
IE 9, 121 redirects (webpagetest.org)
IE 10, 121 redirects (webpagetest.org)
IE 11, 110 redirects
Opera 28, 21 redirects
Opera 36, 21 redirects
Safari 5.1.7, 16 redirects

I checked FF using about:config
- http://kb.mozillazine.org/network.http.redirection-limit => 20 for FF

I will raise this default value to 20.
