Have some problem with 404 page handling
- I installed the 404 error extension.
- placed the 404page_not_found.php file in my root, and added the .htacess 
(change the paths).
- created a new 'error page' to redirect the non existing pages (404 error).
- created a domain and set the needed values (domain + link to the redirect 

If i enter an non-existing page in FE, the page does gets redirected to my 
created 'error page'. But instead of showing my page it displays this. (in 
fact all my pages get redirected to my 'error page'

any idea whats causing this. thx

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.

    *   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to 

This is my .htaccess file
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^([0-9]+)[.]([0-9]+).html$ /index.php?id=$1&type=$2

# for the extension 404handling comes now the important stuff; you have to 
adjust the path
ErrorDocument 404 /404page_not_found.php
ErrorDocument 500 /404page_not_found.php
