Hello, a few hours ago I've installed the 64-bit version of Firefox and now some of the sites won't load when opened from a results page of the search engine DuckDuckGo (otherwise they load fine). For example, I search for Firefox and get the result page and these websites load when I click on them: mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ facebook.com/Firefox but these websites don't load: cnet.com/tags/firefox filehippo.com/download_firefox

instead of the websites I get an error: "Problem loading page" + "The connection was reset" and in the address bar is the url: http://r.duckduckgo.com/l/?kh=-1&uddg=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cnet.com%2Ftags%2Ffirefox%2F

Thanks

Was able to fix it/get around it by tweaking the settings on duckduckgo (turned off "Redirect: Prevent sharing of your search with sites you click on" in Privacy)
