Browser is removing Twitter links, videos in news stories on many web sites

Posted

Pages I visit on a regular basis, and have for many years, are now "disappearing" Twitter links, videos and other hyperlinks. This began in the last few days, Examples include Weasel Zippers, Twitchy, etc. When the pages first load, the entire content is there, but it vanishes very quickly, and I cannot acess what appear to be essential details in each of the stories. What is going on, please?

Make sure you are not blocking content.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?


One issue that seems more common lately is Firefox's Content Blocking. When it is blocking content in a page, a shield icon will appear at the left end of the address bar next to the padlock icon. This article has more info on managing this feature:
