Problems logging into Forum until cookies cleared

I just had some problems logging into the forum using Firefox. (and Chrome)

Yesterday I had logged in with a community only login, choose for it to keep me logged in, and was checking a support message with the web page left open. 

This morning the forum had logged me out, and when I went to log back in using the forum login link it kept continually re-directing between two pages.

The first login URL is:

https://signin.verizon.com/sso/authsso/forumLoginPage.jsp?goto=http%3A%2F%2Fforums.verizon.com%2Fvrz...

which issues a 302 redirect to:

https://signin.verizon.com/sso/authsso/communityLogin.jsp?goto=http%3A%2F%2Fforums.verizon.com%2Fvrz...

The 2nd communityLogin.jsp page just has the following on it, which loops it back to the original forumLoginPage.jsp:

<head>
        <META HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" CONTENT="0;url=https://signin.verizon.com/sso/authsso/forumLoginPage.jsp?goto=http%3A%2F%2Fforums.verizon.com%2Fvrz...
        <title>Forums Login intermediate page</title>
    </head>
    <body> </body>

These kept looping back an forth between those two urls many times per second until I stopped the page load.

Multipl login attempts produced the same result as the above re-directing loop.

I finally tried to clear all my verizon related cookies in Firefox.

After that I was able to click on the forum login link and was given the option to login as  verizon customer or with a community login.

I experienced the same issue yesterday, but was using Chrome.

Originally I thought there was a glitch with Chrome, so I switched to Firefox and it worked, however now I'm thinking it must have been because I didn't have any cookies set in Firefox initially.

I just checked now, and Chrome is still in the same re-direct loop, I can provide cookie information if you want to investigate this.
