I was trying to access a site via the Wayback Machine (https://web.archive.org/). It did not load, so I tried disabling all browser extensions. That did not work. I tried it in another Firefox profile that I rarely use, and have not configured at all. It does not work.

I used Library III\ >> History >> Clear Recent History... and then selected in the dropdown menu Everything and then selected the following items to clear:

  • Active Logins
  • Form & Search History
  • Cookies
  • Cache
  • Site Preferences
  • Offline Website Data

Hi Ethan, First, try this link:

https://archive.org/web/ ___________________________________________

If that doesn't help Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

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