First, I have no idea what I am doing re any sophisticated knowledge re Firefox or any other browser. So, please bear with me re how to understand my question.

I have no idea what I did, but after getting the latest Firefox, I cannot access Reddit. Let me explain: I was able to click on each topic/post freely on Reddit. Now when I visit Reddit, the topics/posts are stagnant and when I click on a topic/post, it goes to another page and I have to click on the URL to read the post. Also, if there are multiple pages on a post, the only page I can see is the first, I cannot click through to view anything additional.

It seems that Firefox is blocking Reddit. I hope this explains this issue.

Also, I cannot find the "settings" for Firefox now... to allow unlimited scroll and to automatically go to a new page.

  • Press the Alt or F10 key to bring up the toolbar. Then Tools > Settings.
  • Press the 'hamburger' (3 horizontal lines) icon. Then Settings.

Make sure you are not blocking content.

Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode {web link}

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

It is possible that Reddit isn't supporting the Firefox 65.0 version you appear to be using.

Any special reason you aren't using the current release (95.0.2) ?
