It's all in the title. I tried clearing cookies & cache, but no luck. This webpage used to work in FF, but I forget exactly at what upgrade version it stopped working. It's the only site that isn't working in FF.

There is no error message, on the page or in the FF status bar. Just a blank white screen. Thanks

Not a Firefox issue, but Adblock Plus. Surely a anti-ad filter which is surblocking the page.

Just posting to confirm I have no problems with that link http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business/market_data/overview/

I am in the UK and see that as intended. I guess it may redirect for viewers not in the UK to a bbc.com page.

Thanks for the responses.

It was the ADblocker. I just disabled it for the website and it now works. Strange as all other webpages, including streaming, seemed to work fine with Adblocker enabled.

Thanks again.
