For some reason, starting about a couple of days ago, Firefox will NOT load the site - it displays the "Unable to Connect" page (see linked image) and I can't think of anything to do. All other video players work - on Youtube and Facebook and it's very strange that I'm not able to access only this entire site. Also, on sites such as Twitter and Tumblr, I am not able to access the vine videos (that have been linked, I assume, from - it will just show a square on the webpage where the vine video player should be but it just has the "unable to connect" image instead. I have Ubuntu, all updated, and Firefox is updated as well to the best of my knowledge. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

If you disable one of the video player extensions, does the other load the media content on the page?
