I have had to go to safari because firefox won't engage the linkls when clicked. Any suggestions. Just started doing this.
Recently, when I click on a link I get a blank page and the link won't engage. When I click on a link on facebook for an article, the article appears for several seconds then disappears to leave a list of article but I can't keep the article open long enough to read. I switched to Safari and everything works with Safari. So let me know what needs to be done to get the firefox back up and functioning.
