After the last update of Firefox, 94.02, my browser keeps disconnecting from some sites like gmail, yahoo. Once it disconnects it cannot reconnect back till a hard reset . Sometimes it doesn't respond at all to some sites. Other sites like Facebook have no such issue. I have the same issue on windows 10 and Linux on two separate machines and two different networks. And no , safe mode is no better. Any ideas ?

Can you post a full browser screenshot showing the issue? Is the proxy on in the setting. see screenshot What are your cookie setting?

I also have this problem, no proxies, pretty much default Firefox settings, I tried with no addons, I wiped my APPDATA mozilla folder, reinstalled Firefox and the problem persists.

It happens on Youtube fairly often where I click something and it acts like it's loading then I see a Youtube page telling me to connect to the internet and when I click retry it loads the page fine. It happens on a few other websites as well where it just times out, this happens on my laptop which uses wifi and on my desktop which is wired.

I also notice when I download say nVidia drivers (or anything) the download fails randomly.

I switched to Edge on my desktop a month ago due to these issues and I have not had these problems at all, I have no issues with anything else that uses internet and my connection isn't dropping despite what Youtube tells me (only when I use Firefox)

I've tried everything aside from reinstalling Windows which considering it happens on 2 different devices seems pointless, if this also happened in Edge I'd suspect my ISP but it doesn't so...

Happens in 94.02 and v95, so frustrating.
