Yes - enable cookies. There code is screwed up (nothing unusual here) &
loops forever until it is able to set a cookie.
Recommend that you install the Preferences toolbar; that way you can
turn cookies on & off easily:
I typically leave flash, cookies etc turned off unless I visit a site I
trust & know that they are needed. PrefBar is the easiest that I've
found to do this on the fly and I've been using it since it first came out.
