Since the last update, weblinks don't work anymore (dont forward to the correct site) What's wrong?

Posted

When browsing with Firefox, web-links do not connect to the correct webpage. in Safari or Chrome it does work. For example, when I try to the check in for my next flight. From the homepage of my airline, I click on the link for check in but I am linked to a Yahoo search page. This happens on other webpages as well but does not happen when using Chrome or Safari browser.

It's really annoying, can anyone please help?

Thx.

Do you have any Spigot extensions?

  • Spigot Searchme

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • Switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools > Add-ons > Appearance
  • Do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window
