So recently I've had a problem with Firefox not connecting to the internet unless I quit and reopen the app. It happens like this: - I open Firefox and it works; - I lose the internet connection (e.g. I turn off my wifi, or my laptop goes to sleep); - I reconnect to the internet; - the open Firefox browser will not connect to anything and just keeps loading when I click on a link - I need to quit the Firefox app and restart it before it starts to work again.

This doesn't happen to my other browsers (Safari, Chrome), once I reconnect to the internet the open browser will just continue working without needing to be restarted.

It's not a big deal but it is a little inconvenient and I'd like to know if there's something I can do to fix it.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. Is the problem still there?


Separate Issue; Your System Details shows;

Installed Plug-ins

Version 5.40.2.0 Version 5.41.0.0
Having more than one version of a program may cause issues. You must remove the older programs. Then get the current full installer.

What setting is set for your Network preferences in about:preferences#advanced

Thanks guigs! Changing the Network Preferences to no proxy solved the problem.
