Okay folks I have solved my issue. The clue was that both my wife on her laptop and me on mine were suddenly having trouble with this site. I brought down my router and left it off for a full minute. I powered off both laptops and left them off for a minute. I then brought the router back online and the laptops each back on line and now there is joy in the household. Both laptops now access MSN.com and all other sites. Super Text Twist still doesn't play but I think that is their problem and not mine since many others are complaining about the game not loading and someone from there said they were aware and working on it.
Try Firefox Safe Mode to see if the problem goes away. Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode, which disables most add-ons.
(If you're not using it, switch to the Default theme.)
Once you get the pop-up, just select "'Start in Safe Mode"
If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to figure out which one. Please follow the Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems article for that.
To exit the Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before opening Firefox for normal use again.
When you figure out what's causing your issues, please let us know. It might help other users who have the same problem.
I appreciate the response however the tip had no effect. Safe mode does not allow me to open MSN.com
Hi, try setting a blank page as your home page instead of MSN.
I hit Ctrl-T to open a blank page and set that as my home page. I closed Firefox. When I opened it again it worked correctly as my homepage but would still not go to MSN.com. It goes there. The Bing symbol shows in the address bar along with www.MSN.com but the page is blank white. There is no indication that anything is trying to load and I have left it on the blank page for well over 5 minutes with no change.
Longshot but as trouble shooting steps
Hi, you may find as I did that the MSN page at this time is buggy (a graphic issue) but only with FF, as long as you do not use MSN at all everything else will work. Leave the blank page for a week or so and try MSN again, you will find that it may work as before.
I think that is where I have finally come. I open it with no problem in Chrome so when I feel the need to go there I will use that browser. Everything else except one game, Super Text Twist, seems to work fine and that game doesn't work even in Chrome!
the MSN page at this time is buggy (a graphic issue) but only with FF, Any more info or links about that please ?
If a major popular site is consistently failing only with Firefox someone needs to look into that.
