Since I upgraded Firefox last week, I'm encountering problems/Windows 10, like gaming & Twitter. What's going on?

First it was the Facebook Games app on Windows 10 that was affected(I deleted it), & now I can't connect to my Twitter...it says it's having a problem connecting. But if I go around via Firefox, I have no problem. So before I delete & MAYBE reinstall Firefox, give me some suggestions on what to try next. Thanks!

What is the full message?

First, you say Firefox has a problem, then you say; But if I go around via Firefox, I have no problem

Please explain the problem in detail. What happens? Error messages?

The msg. tells me to check my network connectivity-that's fine. But if I try to access Twitter by Windows, the message comes back.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} by holding down the <Shift> (Mac=Options) key, and then starting Firefox.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?


Separate Security Issue: Update your Flash Player Note: Windows users should download the ActiveX for Internet Explorer. and the plugin for Plugin-based browsers (like Firefox).

Note: Windows 8 and Windows 10 have built-in flash players and Adobe will cause a conflict. Install the plugin only. Not the ActiveX.
