With the latest FF update I can't load the New York Times

I updated FF and Flash Player today and now I can't load the New York Times - all I get is a page with links. Other sites are loading OK. I've tried changing the security.mixed_content.block_active_content to false and that didn't help.

I've got FF 36:0 and I use Windows. Does anybody know whether this is a FF problem and if there's a solution?

I don't think it's my plug-ins because other sites load easily but these are the ones I've got:

  • Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape 10.1.13
  • Citrix Online App Detector Plugin
  • Version
  • Google Update
  • Musicnotes Viewer plugin 1.21.0 For more information visit
  • The QuickTime Plugin allows you to view a wide variety of multimedia content in Web pages. For more information, visit the QuickTime Web site.
  • Shockwave Flash 17.0 r0
  • Adobe Shockwave for Director Netscape plug-in, version
  • 5.1.30514.0
  • VLC media player Web Plugin 2.1.3
  • iTunes Detector Plug-in

I think the browser cache is corrupt. You can goto options->advanced->network, and clear cache then try again.
