FireFox not working with LinkedIn

Hi,

In the recent weeks, I am unable to use LinkedIn properly. After a short while of use, parts of the display disappear. When I click on a link, I am taken to a completely different place that I clicked on (seemingly What I see and where FireFox thinks I am are not aligned) and the issues keep adding up. I have ensured that FireFox is up to date. I have tried to refresh the screen. I have restarted it over and over again. Nothing has stopped this issue from reoccurring.

My Mac OS is up to date and I have no issues with LinkedIn on Safari or Chrome. But I do prefer FireFox and would hate to have to change my default browser because of this issue.

Any thoughts, suggestions and ideas are greatly welcomed.

Thanks in advance, Sally.

Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache.

Warning ! ! This will log you out of sites you're logged in to. You may also lose any settings for that website.

If there is still a problem, Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} by holding down the <Shift> (Mac=Options) key, and then starting Firefox.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Did this help?

While you are in safe mode;

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.

Thank you for your help. I cleared cash & history - no help. Started FireFox in safe mode - no help. Updated Adobe Flash player - there is a significant improvement.

I am closing the ticket. Will update this ticket if I find any issues. Thanks again you for your prompt and helpful response. Best Regards, Sally.

Hi,

The problem came back again shortly after, exactly as before. It did not made sense to open a new ticket. Knowing all that I have already tried out. Any other idea come to anyone's mind?

Thanks a million, Sally.
