Firefox constantly disconnecting university network
I swear I have Googled this a bunch of times and never quite got the answer. I actually suspect it's not fixable, but I was wondering if anyone understood it.
Firefox is a supported browser on the university network, but the connection drops anywhere between immediately after loading the previous tabs to half an hour later. Mostly somewhere in between. I don't *think* this is happening with Chrome, but I only use Chrome if I have to.
Google Calendar will have a wee note at the bottom saying it is disconnected; no other windows say anything, they just won't refresh/allow me to search. What's interesting to me is that Facebook Messenger will work. Nothing else will be working and I can continue a conversation that loads both ways in that tab.
The add-ons I have are:
- Duckduck Go Privacy Essentials
- Facebook Container
- Google Scholar Button
- Privacy Possum
- Social Fixer for Facebook
- uBlock Origin
- View Image
Any ideas? It can be infuriating when I'm searching for (academic articles). I haven't seen that it's particularly linked to how many tabs I've opened/buttons I have interacted with or anything.
