I was just thinking...do you remember that dog that appeared quite often years ago on ActiveRain?   Workarounds of all varieties are necessary.  Here and in real life.  I don't use Firefox but glitches of all varieties are seeming to "pop up" from time to time.

Isn't that interesting . . .  Firefox is the only browser that does work for me.  Tried Chrome, etc. and never had any good luck.

Sometimes you need to restart your computer maybe even do a disk cleanup and defragment the drive. On an easier level close FireFox and reopen it...maybe???

Hi Carol- I do use Chrome but it is not without its glitches. When I run into an issue, I restart my computer, make sure my browser is updated, and delete cookies.

Not a technie, Mozilla typically recommends to remove extensions and restore browser to defaults.

This suggestion is to reboot in safe mode and see if works there:

Since the last 'upgrade' my search engines will not work in Firefox, I have to use Edge

Hi Carol, have you tried the simplest fix of all - turn off computer for a little bit and turn it back on again? It often works - wakes up fixed!

I would delete Chrome & upload it again with newest version. Windows 10 has some issues so it might not be Chrome at all!

Alan is right as there are no notices of updates 1/2 the time.

You might try to make sure that your Firefox is the latest version.  They update that thing pretty regularly, and it's worth staying current.

I have read where others have trouble with Chrome (which I have not) and switch to Firefox and are happy. 

Quirky!
