Firefox loads a website but does not display it, will display it on another tab and control it from another tab.

Posted

Firefox loads and runs the first tab successfully. The second tab whatever website you direct it to will say it has loaded that page but displays nothing. Directing the third tab to a website will cause that website to be loaded onto the second tab but controlled from the third tab. This process then continues.

Chosen solution

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.
