So I've been experiencing a rather annoying bug/issue, and I have a work around for it, but I would love if anyone could help me figure out the issue at hand. I couldn't find a relevant, up to date solution for this issue.
Basically, certain websites (the most notable being Reddit) will eventually no longer load. In fact, it won't even try to load. I will click a link from a Google search, or even just type in the URL for Reddit directly, and Firefox just does nothing. No error, no loading, nothing. The tab will stay blank with the URL listed as the name of the tab. I can't seem to tell if other browsers have this issue as it requires a bit of use/time to pass, but it doesn't seem to be an issue in Explorer. It isn't JUST Reddit, but it's only a couple of sites that this occurs on.
I do have a workaround --- if I tell Firefox to "Forget This Website" - suddenly it will work again. I will be logged out and see the default page due to having deleted all saved dated - but the site will work (for maybe a day) before I have to forget it again.
If this was a once a month type issue it wouldn't be a big deal, but the fact that I have to constantly re-do my local settings because of this is frustrating.
I am running Windows 10 and my Firefox version is 85.0 (64-bit). I have tried disabling any add-ons such as my AdBlocker, however that does not fix the issue.
