The server won't do that unprompted.  Either your application or
your configuration is sending a redirect.

That doesn't make sense.  302 isn't an error.

That's incredibly broken browser behaviour (unless your application
is sending the whole caboodle in the redirect).  I don't believe any
"normal" browser is that broken.

I infer that your problem description is garbled.
