I tried in my a new SM v2.53.5.1 profile too in my over decade old, 
updated 64-bit W7 HPE SP1 PC. Is anyone else seeing this too? No 
problems in Firefox v84.0.2 web browser though.

Thank you for reading and hopefully answering. :)

Now, it works. It must had been a glitch earlier. It wasn't earlier. 
Thanks for checking! :)

I've seen similar behavior in a Firefox profile on other sites that are 
owned by Gannett. (For me, it's just a redirect loop that never 
resolves, but no error message) The profile is on a computer that I 
can't check immediately, so I don't know the specifics of that profile 
(especially with ad blocking and cookie handling), but I know that my 
standard suggestion of clearing cache and cookies doesn't have any effect.

I do find it interesting that Gannett-owned sites are remarkably similar 
in configuration, including overall display format, and extensive list 
of scripting hosts used, both for content delivery (such as 
gannett-cdn.com and gcion.com) and tracking/ad delivery (kxrd.com, 
newrelic.com, onetrust.com, urbanairship.com, etc.) It's remarkably 
centralized, and you see the same behavior whether you're at USA Today, 
Nashville Tennessean, Reno Gazette, Arizona Republic, Indianapolis Star, 
El Paso Times or any other Gannett property.

I haven't had problems in my primary Seamonkey profile (2.53.5.1), so I 
haven't taken the effort to try to figure out. For normal usage in 
Seamonkey, I have NoScript set to disallow nearly all the domains in 
question, and disallow third-party cookies.
