When I try to open a particular site (, Firefox automatically switches between that url and When loading, the two jump back and forth. This doesn't happen with any other url, and I can open just fine in IE. What gives. It's not much of a newspaper, but it's all we have.

Try clearing your cookies and cache.

  • History (or New Fx Menu > History) > Clear Recent History

Or: "Clear the Cache":

  • Tools (or New Fx Menu > Options > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"

"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:

  • Tools (or New Fx Menu > Options > Privacy > "Use custom settings for history" > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

You can also try running in Firefox Safe Mode to see if an extension might be causing the issue.

Did this problem occur recently with Firefox? The link runs fine for me; do you have any Firewall rules or antivirus settings that may block links?

It is strange that it is trying to force you to a mobile site, and then back to a desktop version. Would you happen to have Flash disabled? I am wondering if the site is detecting a missing plugin and trying to bring you to a more compatible version.

When you go to the site, you can check if the Web Console shows any errors:

  • Tools (or New Fx Menu > Developer/Web Developer > Web Console

If it is redirecting too quickly, you can temporarily disable redirects:

  • Tools (or New Fx Menu) > Options > Advanced > General
  • Check "Warn me when sites try to reload or redirect the page"

Also I doubt this is related to your problem, but I notice you have two versions of Adobe PDF Plug-ins:

  • Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape 11.0.9
  • Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape 11.0.8

Having multiple versions of the same plugin can cause problems as well.

What is the width of the Firefox window?

It looks that it switches to the mobile version if the window width is around 768px

Note that zooming a page also effects this.

You may have zoomed the page(s) by accident. Reset the page zoom on pages that cause problems.

  • View > Zoom > Reset (Ctrl/Command+0 (zero))
