Why is my default browser Firefox suddenly unable to open all websites whereas Google Chrome works fine?

Posted

Firefox is my default browser. As of yesterday, I cannot open any web sites with it and get only "problem loading page" messages. It will not open bookmarked sites, its usual link to Google for searches, URL links, typed in URLs.. I can copy URLs that won't open in Firefox and paste them into Google Chrome. I have no problems opening links in Google Chrome. The online fix suggestions I have tried (accessed through Google Chrome and Edge) have not resolved the problem. Ideas? I have a MacBook Air with Windows 10 which I access through Parallels. I use Firefox on the pc Windows side via the Parallels connection

Hello Osier,

That must be pretty frustrating .....

Would you please take a look at this article and see if maybe you can find a solution there :

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can

(I don't know if you have uBlock Origin installed, but I saw some people mention that disabling it, solved the problem for them)

If every suggested solution fails, maybe you could contact Parallels :

What are the sites? So others can see if they have the same problem or not.
