    I am getting a infinite loop of page flickering or refreshes when I try to go create a new news item. I'm using Sitefinity 4.1.1487.0.

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Open up Firefox 6 and log in to site as administrator
    2. Go to Content > News
    3. Click "Create a news item" button.

    The page goes completely white, then the page's header appears before going white again and repeating. Using Firebug, I see that the page is making 4 AJAX requests to the following locations before repeating.

    If I leave the browser alone, these 4 requests will repeat forever and cause my browser to crash. I tested in IE 9 and Chrome 14 and they both work normally. Is there a fix for this?

    Are you able to update to 4.2 Hotfix 1 (or wait till early next week to put in 4.2 SP1)?

    It's a FF6 issue that was fixed just after the official FF6 release with the 4.2 Hotfix...so that fix should be in SP1 as well.

    I think we can wait until SP1. I look forward to testing it out. Thanks!
