Can't create New Facebook Application (6 posts)

    I go to https://www.facebook.com/developers/ and create a new application, but it never gets there. Firefox 16.0.2 gives me an error: "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."

    Therefore I cannot set up a Facebook application to allow for login.

    Any ideas?

    Did you try using IE or Chrome? You only need to do it once, so why not just use another browser to do it?

    I tried IE and Safari. IE just went into an infinite redirection loop and Safari never even mkes it to the login screen, telling me the "server isn't responding". I tried "http" and "https".

    I tried Safari and Chrome on an iPad. Safari went into a redirection loop, and Chrome did nothing, stalling on the login page.

    Maybe the developer resource moved? Could this be it? http://developers.facebook.com/tools/ I don't really know what I'm looking for.

    both of those are valid / take you to the same site, I just logged in to look at mine and more specifically, it took me to
    https://developers.facebook.com/apps

    It might have soemthing to do with the privacy or security settings in your browsers. That's what I first thought when you mentioned FF did a redirect. I've seen that, but not the very end of it where it says "never complete"

    Thanks for your patience, murphdog. It is strange that I get the same issues on multiple browsers on multiple devices.

    Where to I go to now? It seems to me that the "Websites" link would be best, but I'm not sure. I have no idea where exactly to "create" my application.

    If anything, the instructions for Facebook with this plugin need clarification.

    Thanks.
