Hi,

When I go on a store website, I want to sort products by price, or best reviews etc. This feature used to work. Now when I go on a website, and select another 'sort by' feature, it doesn't do anything. Before when I selected another search criterion, the website would automatically reload, sorted by the selected criterion. I recently updated to Firefox 41.02. What software controls the sort feature, and why won't it work? Is it an error in 41.0.2?
