firefox stuck in "connecting..".windows upgraded to 10 from 7.

Posted

When I open Firefox,it works fine but after a while,sometimes less,sometimes after few hours or so,it gets stuck with "connecting.."and it won't open a webspage. To make it work again,i have to restart the pc or just wait for 30 mins or sometimes more! Edge browser works absolutely fine.It doesn't give me any error message at all! as In the image you can see,it's been at least 30 minutes that nothing is happening!

Update your Flash Player Version 19.0.0.185
https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html
Note: Windows users must download the “Internet Explorer” and “Plugin-based browsers” installers.

Note: Edge on Win10 does not use ActiveX version but its own Flash.

See if there are updates for your graphics drivers https://support.mozilla.org/kb/upgrade-graphics-drivers-use-hardware-acceleration


Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. Is the problem still there?
