She's using Mac OS X on a macbook. One of my suggestions is to install firefox.
Is there anything more specific about Safari reacts badly badly to redirection besides
just not redirecting? Here the system seems to redirect fine except for that cookie error on
the machine doing the redirecting. She gets into a session on the new machine, though maybe
one that has issues.
Thanks for the feedback,
