I got the same results.
Interestingly, if I copy the contents of your page into a file and
display the file in Firefox, I don't get the redirect screen either.
That suggests that it's neither cookie magic (since the only cookies
it can see with my setup are the ones it sets itself) nor anything in
the html header (since those are also the same). There must be
something in the http headers... truly something beyond our control.
Anyway, not a big deal. Probably the best solution is to keep a copy
of the Readme on the Gnucash.org website and just link to that (copies
and those, actually, because there's a separate one for unstable).
