There was about a half hour window of time during which the Mozilla site seemed to be completely unavailable earlier today. If that was the issue, it should be working again now.

No, it is still happening today. They are getting the same error message when they try to search and when they try to work with their text.

Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache. In order to try to fix these problems, the first step is to clear both cookies and the cache. Note: This will temporarily log you out of all sites you're logged in to. To clear cache and cookies do the following:

I haven't tried the previous suggestion as these are student computers that are "cleared" nightly through our district server. There isn't anything in the history, etc.

I had a further thought - could this be because we aren't using Firefox? We are on Google Chrome.

The issue isn't happening on my Mac - w/Safari or my desktop with Internet Explorer...

IE will connect to Webmaker/Popcorn Maker but Chrome won't? Perhaps it is Chrome setting or extension, but I hardly use Chrome at all so it's difficult for me to advise on that.
