I can't get any links from pinterest to load. They just come up to a blank screen with a small blue box to the left.

It doesn't happen with any other website, just Pinterest. If I click a link on it, the new tab will open, but nothing will display expect a small blue box all the way to the left of the screen. This happens with ANY link I open from Pinterest, but no other sites.

Hi saugeoden,

Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache. In order to try to fix these problems, the first step is to clear both cookies and the cache. Note: This will temporarily log you out of all sites you're logged in to. To clear cache and cookies do the following:

  1. Click the menu button New Fx Menu, choose History, and then "Clear Recent History...".
  2. Under "Time range to clear", select "Everything".
  3. Now, click the arrow next to Details to toggle the Details list active.
  4. From the details list, check Cache and Cookies and uncheck everything else.
  5. Now click the "Clear Now" button.

Further information can be found in the Delete browsing, search and download history on Firefox article.

Did this fix your problems? Please report back to us!

Thank you.

Same here only not just with Pinterest,the white page with the blue box in the corner can be helpful if you put your cursor just on the little box and right click you are able to open another tab with the " Open link in new tab" feature,not the best but a work around at least.. Maybe Moz will fix soon..

You can check the Web Console (Tools -> Web Developer) for messages about blocked content and about the presence of mixed or unsafe content.

You can check the Network Monitor to see if content is blocked or otherwise fails to load.

If necessary use "Ctrl+F5" or "Ctrl+Shift+R" to reload the page and bypass the cache to generate a fresh log.
