t.co twitter links won't work on any of my apple devices.

more options

Any time a page won't load it is with a sense of inevitability that I notice t.co in the address. It is happening across all my devices, but specifically my macbook and imac where I use firefox.

There is no error message, just a blank page that stops trying to load. This has been going on for weeks now and it's really tiresome. Reboot, update, all the basic tricks haven't changed anything. Running Yosemite 10.10.5 with the latest version of firefox.

It has also been paralleled (as far as I can tell) with slower loading of pages in general, freezing of pages for several seconds, tabs freezing when I try to click between them and very jerky scrolling. I've used firefox for years but I can't put up with this for much longer.

And I'm not sure if it's related, but I cannot confirm my disqus account as that page won't load either.

Please try flushing your DNS cache on your system.

The Domain Name System (DNS) is the service that converts the URL that you enter into the appropriate IP address for the web server which you are attempting to connect to. Your computer saves these conversions so that it doesn't need to take the time to request these conversions each time you enter in the URL.

Flushing/resetting your DNS cache will delete all of your saved DNS conversions and remove any IP addresses that may be leaving to the wrong server.

Does resetting your DNS cache fix your issue? Please let us know.
