I have Linux Mint 19.2. Firefox "out of the box" was working till today (Aug 7, 2019). Now it starts but doesn't load any pages.

This just started happening. I can get a working copy of downloading the bz2 from Mozilla and unpacking it, but the system Firefox doesn't work. The system Firefox that doesn't load says it is "mint-1.0" while the one that works, says 68.0.1 (64-bit). It reminds me of the song Yesterday. Thanks!!!

Hello,

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. (Firefox 57 and above) Click the Library button 57 library icon and choose History.
    (Click the menu button New Fx Menu and choose History in older Firefox versions.)
  2. In the History menu, choose "Clear Recent History...".
  3. Under "Time range to clear", select "Everything".
  4. Now, click the arrow next to Details to toggle the Details list active.
  5. From the details list, check Cache and Cookies and uncheck everything else.
  6. 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.
