Firefox suddenly stops loading websites

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by HellPope Huey, Jan 14, 2006.

  1. Firefox (being used within Mac OS X 10.2) has begun to behave
    erratically. After varying intervals, on numerous websites, it begins
    saying there is no data on that page and will not go Back/Reload or says
    "Site cannot be found; please check address." These happen on a roughly
    50/50 basis. (Its not any particular sites, but a general behavior.)

    If I shut it down and reinstantiate, it goes back to behaving
    properly. I have had no luck in troubleshooting due to the intermittent
    nature of it; adjusting settings seems like a hazy prospect when it
    rolls along fine as a rule.

    Loading v.1.5 is certainly a good general idea ASAP, granted, but I'd
    like to better understand how and why this is happening with this
    version. Great program, odd behavior. Any ideas? Thanks.

  2. If your problem is with teh browser's back function, 1.5 has a fix for this.

  3. Okay, sounds sensible; the new builds always seem to bring more good
    than clunkers. It was about time I did that anyway! Thanks.

  4. If you get a chance, let me know how it performs on 10.2.
