Posted

I'm watching a video and underneath it it says show more. usually there are more links to click, However, when I click the new link it just flashes and doesn't even open the page at all not even to a new link like it used to do. It used to work without any problems till just the other day

Try starting Firefox in it's Safe Mode to see if the problem persists.

Safe Mode temporarily turns off hardware acceleration, resets some settings, and disables add-ons (extensions and themes) that might be causing problems.

With Firefox open: Select Menu Select Help Select Restart With Add-ons Disabled On the dialog select Restart On the next dialog select Start In Safe Mode (Do Not select Refresh)

With Firefox closed: Press and hold the Shift (in Mac: Option) key Launch Firefox On the dialog select Start In Safe Mode (Do Not select Refresh)

(Your Bookmarks Toolbar will be turned off. Right-click on the Toolbar and select Bookmarks Toolbar to display it again.)


To quit Safe Mode: Select Menu Select Help Select Restart With Add-ons Enabled

Or Exit Firefox.
