I was going to order some calendars from a company that I have been ordering from for a number of years. I clicked on "add to cart" and then I clicked on "check-out" and nothing happened. The hand on the screen was frozen. I contacted the company and they told me to change my browsers. Did you ever hear of this happening. I don't know if I want to change my browser, or what to change it to.

Chosen solution

I disabled my extensions and the problem went away. I was able to complete my calendar order.

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.

You will need to restart Firefox for this to take effect so save all work first (e.g., mail you are composing, online documents you're editing, etc.,) and then perform these steps:

In Firefox 54 and below:

  1. Click the menu button New Fx Menu and select Options (Windows) or Preferences (Mac, Linux).
  2. Select the Advanced panel and the General tab.
  3. Uncheck Use hardware acceleration when available.
  4. Close Firefox completely and then restart Firefox to see if the problem persists.

In Firefox 55 and above:

  1. Click the menu button New Fx Menu and select Options (Windows) or Preferences (Mac, Linux).
  2. Select the General panel.
  3. Under Performance, uncheck Use recommended performance settings. Additional settings will be displayed.

  5. Close Firefox completely and then restart Firefox to see if the problem persists.

It could be the work of one of your add-ons.

What do you mean?

I do not know anything about add-ons (what they are for/do I need them, etc.)

more options

Add-ons are sub-programs that can change how Firefox looks, acts, and other things. As to not adding any yourself, some are installed with the browser. In the current Firefox, some have caused problems.

The choice is yours. If there is something you don't want, disable or remove it.

Also, how can I delete the "post reply" messages from today and the past?

Postings on this forum are forever. Don't worry about it.
