This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.

Problem: With browser redirection turned on, the website is loaded correctly according to the browser's language then redirects again to the site's primary language.

Solution: This is a known issue on versions of WPML prior to 3.5.2. Upgrade to our latest version and the issue will go away.

I am trying to:
Change my website language. That works fine, but after two seconds it jumps automatically back to the other language. I saw a lot of topics about this issue, but all I can read is that it is still a bug. Have you resolved this allready? When I turn browser redirection off, it works fine. But I want to turn it on so my French visitors immediately see the French homepage of my website...

URL of (my) website where problem appears:
hidden link

If you want I can give you a login of my website and FTP, so you can try by yourself?

Thanks a lot!

Hi @jefm, we've just released today a new version of WPML (3.5.2). Would you mind upgrading your WPML version and test this again? This new version is supposed to resolve this issue. Remember to always backup your site+data before upgrading your plugins.

Let me know how it goes!
