why dosen't fire fox let me open my linksys router's set-up web page ?
I'm using Ubuntu16.4 with firefox 57.0 (64bit) and I want to open my linksys routers web control page . After typing in my user name & pass word then click ok the sign in page comes back up empty. If I close this sign in then I get error 401 Authorization Required. is this fireFox or do I have some setting set to not allow authorization to 192.168.1.1 I can open my routers web page in windows 7 using Google Chrome. I have dual boot. But I am mostly using Ubuntu16.4 os.
Additional System Details
adobe flash & OpenH264 Video Codec
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:57.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/57.0
Make sure your updated to 57.0.1

I did try refreshing my Fire Fox & run it in safe mode then enter192.168.1.1 in the address bar. Sign in show up. After signing in ,I click ok and the sign-in page returns empty if I click cancel I get this info on 401 Authorization Required. see screen print. Ubuntu maintance's my fire fox up to date I am running 57.0
Someone change the settings on you or they change the page : Error. 401 Unauthorized.
That first part is most likely it. I have installed Google chrome and I can get into my Linksys routers set-up page this way. Thanks for all your help & info !
No problem here getting to my router settings. I have a netgear though.
