what does it mean when a website dissapears and there is a downwards arrow on the open tab ???

Posted

When I am on some websites the little circle in the Tab goes left as normal until it finds the site then right until it locks on, but only stays there a few seconds on the page goes blank. Then there is a down facing arrow where the circle was in the Tab. I cant find out what this means ????? Thanks. G West

This is probably because you have the orbit downloader, Try to either uninstall it, or Reset Firefox.

Mozilla doesn't supply add-ons, they are made by third-parties and we can not guarantee they will work with Firefox.
