Hello @Muhamad Sadik,

I've seen past reports of this problem correspond to an internal redirect that's configured in the script that's installed on the website. Do you have a script installed on the website that uses it's own redirect? If so, try disabling that redirect from the script's configuration file or admin interface (refer to the script's documentation for instructions) to see if the issue persists.

Thank you.
