I am having a problem logging onto my wifi admin site. For a few years it opened with no problems, but recently all I get is the little spinning cursor on a grey background. The address is http://192.168.0.1/html/home.htm I am using Windows 7 32bit. The same problem has also happened on my Huawei Nova running Android version 7 EMUI Version 5.0.3. I have followed instructions in support, and made the suggested changes in about:config. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. I have also tried Reset. Any suggestions? Thanks Karl

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

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

Thanks for the response. No change in Safe Mode.

Start your Computer in safe mode with network support. Then start Firefox. Try Secure websites. Is the problem still there?

Secure websites opened. http://192.168.0.1/html/home.htm gave me 'The connection has timed out' I tried a number of times with the same result.

Do you own the admin site? Does a service oversee it? I once had a WiFi that I had to go thru the website to change its settings.

It's the wifi website of my mobile operator to change settings. I first went to their support and they claimed they could open the site using the same version of Firefox ... ver 68.0.1 ... my first thought was some setting on my PC. My Android device is not synced in any way with my PC and using Firefox for Android I still can't open it. For a number of years both my PC and my Android did open the site.
