When I try to enter UVA, Firefox shows a message: "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 cookies." (Chrome doesn't work either)

Then I disable cookies from it and enter, but this way prevent me from logging in. Anybody knows how to fix this problem?

whenever I get this problem on Chrome, I do the following :

Settings -> Show advanced settings... -> Content Settings... -> All cookies and site data -> search string "onlinejudge" -> there'll be about 13 cookies -> delete them all.

After this UVA works again. My Chrome version is: 23.0.1271.95 m You could also try accessing UVA from incognito mode. Hope this helps.

    Yes it does. It will occur again and again.

    Incidentally there is an easier way to resolve this.

    1. Click on the icon to the left of the URL.
