Issues connecting to Archive of Our Own (Ao3)

I've noticed something odd the last few days. occasionally, Archive of Our Own— also known as AO3— will stop working properly after visiting a couple different stories, being unusable for most of the day as the pages will come up blank no matter what I click on, or even if I try to connect to a bookmarked page. This is not a consistent thing however. I recently updated to version 109.0.1 of Firefox, but this started happening a few days before the update. It also just happened about five minutes ago. Should I clear my cache and try again, or is there a website issue on their end I'm just not seeing?

EDIT: Ok, so I tried clearing cache and cookies and this is still occurring. No clue why.

https://archiveofourown.org/ What is still occurring? Please provide steps to replicate and screenshot of the issue. Did you try with Firefox in Safe Mode? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/diagnose-firefox-issues-using-troubleshoot-mode

Ok, so it seems to be back up. What I was seeing at least for awhile is that after a bit, I would see nothing but a blank white page after being on a few different stories. Even if I cleared my cache and cookies, this would continue to be a thing. I have a few stories bookmarked, and even when I tried them, all I got was a blank white page with the little icon that depicted a page as loading just going non-stop as if it was incapable of loading the page. If it reoccurs, I'll try to get a screenshot of it.

You can mark this as resolved and we'll leave the light on for ya.  ;-))

So someone asked what I was seeing at times on AO3 where I was just getting a blank page and the loading icon. Well, it happened today on a Youtube video I clicked on. This isn't AO3, of course, but as this is the first example I've seen of this since I first put this question up, I figured it would work as a good example of what I was seeing on AO3 off and on. I haven't see this repeat on AO3 yet, but if it does, again, I'll take a screenshot. But it would be identical to this, from all I can tell.
