FF 18.0.2 - - Pacer.gov no longer will allow me to submit a query, IE works

Posted

I can log into PACER.gov, I can select the court, but when I fill in a query pressing the submit button does nothing.

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.

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.

Question owner

As of this morning, PACER still will not work, clicking the Run Query button on the Query page does nothing, But Chrome and IE work fine.

But then.....

I clicked on Reset Firefox on the Troubleshooting Information page, and it now works.

So what do I have to do to get the extensions back?

You can go to addons.mozilla.org to install extensions.

Question owner

I found a folder that the reset created on my Desktop called OldFireFoxData that seems to have reference to my last extensions, that helped.

Also I clicked on More system Details, and there is a list of my old plug-ins.
