Certain LinkedIn functions are not working. Browser keeps on looping, for instance when using the search function

I go to LinkedIn and type in a name in the search box, for instance "Peter" and hit enter. Normally, this will return with a list of people with the first name "Peter", listed according to degrees connectivity. Instead the web site never loads the next page. It appears that it keeps loading the page over and over again, but with no result. In the end I have to press back or use another browser (Safari) to load the page and use the search function.

When you have a problem with one particular site, a good "first thing to try" is clearing your Firefox cache and deleting your saved cookies for the site.

1. Bypass Firefox's Cache

Use Command+Shift+r to reload the page fresh from the server. Any difference? If not...

2. Clear Firefox's Cache Completely

Edit > Preferences > Advanced

On the Network mini-tab > Cached Web Content : "Clear Now"

3. If needed, remove your linkedin.com cookies

While viewing a page on the site:

Tools > Page Info > Security > "View Cookies"

Remove each cookie then try reloading the page. You probably will need to log in again. Does that help?
