Ordinarily I can use twitter no problem with Firefox. But now all of a sudden it logs me in, and takes me to pages but will not allow me to post tweets, reply to others, or retweet or log out or send direct messages. So basically I cannot do anything unless I use internet explorer, where it seems to work. I don't want to use IE or I wouldn't have Firefox! It is not my twitter account because the same thing happens on other accounts logged in on this pc. I have tried downloading a new version of firefox, removing all twitter cookies and everything else. My account and firefox work on the "Tweetdeck" site but not the actual twitter site. Is there anything I can do because you cannot email twitter (well, I don't have an email address that works for them!! )
Solved! Go to Solution.
This might be due to updated code on Twitter.com causing Firefox to fail due to obsolete cache. Follow these instructions and see if that solves the issue: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-clear-fir
Hope this helps!
Thanks so much for the suggestion but I am afraid following those instructions did not help. I still have the same problem.
I had this same problem from this morning. So restarted Firefox in 'safe mode' with all addons etc disabled - and twitter worked!
Now all I have to do is work out which addon is the problem... *grumbles* *goes to make another cup of tea*
Found it. In my case anyway. My problems with twitter not working in firefox were caused by the 'Ghostery 2.8.3' extension. Disabled it and twitter worked fine.
Oh it's OK! I just tried it and you are correct! Whichever add on we must both be using is interfering with twitter. It works for me now.
If you have Ghostery, it should be in your addons list. Access this through the firefox menu. It should be on the 'extensions' tab.
Cool! Have just checked on the developer's site - and they are aware of the problem and working on a fix.
