I use Tumblr all the time and a few weeks ago, I started having trouble loading it further than the first page and the images I clicked on wouldn't enlarge. I switched to Chrome but it lagged heaps of me in the last few days so I decided to switch to Firefox. It's been going great all day but now it's started having the same problems again. :/

I also had problems with Facebook where the icon on the tab wouldn't show up and I couldn't click on photos and it wouldn't load further than the first page. Facebook is currently working fine.

Forgot to add that I also can't reblog or like anything! I basically can't use the website. :/

Reload web page(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.

  • Press and hold Shift and left-click the Reload button.
  • Press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
  • Press "Command + Shift + R" (MAC)

Clear the cache and the cookies from sites that cause problems.

"Clear the Cache":

  • Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"

"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:

  • Firefox/Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

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.

Try to boot the computer in Windows Safe mode with network support (press F8 on the boot screen) as a test to see if that helps.

Hi hazel.friday

Could you please start a new thread for your question instead of posting in an existing thread?

Then you can provide more information like your operating system and installed extensions and installed plugins.
