I cannot open certain links. Edge opens them. I click on a link and nothing happens. It is a random process as most links are opened. However, some links for purchases, etc. malfunction. See examlpe: https://imgur.com/sRbUxP4
Continue Reading is null. Edge-no problem.

Hi,
A few of "those" links may help others a tad.

Tried Firefox Safe mode yet?

Where are you clicking these links ?
Is this about opening a bookmark ?

In case of the latter the bookmark might be broken.
Otherwise try to start at the main page and navigate to that specific page.

I've noticed - particularly with the -- Pay with PayPal -- link and resulting module from a retail site that IF I don't see a POPUP to ALLOW COOKIES and Clk it, (even with chrome Edge) I have Paying Problems (ie) a "Continue" click results in a spinning load circle but No New Page. & THIS is with CookiesAutoDelete having all offerings Gray-listed.
I'm Having to DISable some/ all of uBO, Privacy Possum, and LocalCDN, also.
A Test Profile is a good start for me (Or maybe FF Safe Mode) but not always 1,2,3.
Play with Security Apps and look for Cookie popups.
Firefox 86.0 - Win 10-20H2 Pro - Diapers, Politicians, and the Media ... ALL Need Changing for the Same Reason - uBO - Cookie AutoDelete - Privacy Possum - LocalCDN - CSS Exfil - HTTPS Everywhere - SingleFile - Reader View -

I refreshed the page and it worked, but it should work the first time.

Just as a comment -

I've had similar problems in the past with Firefox for maybe5 or 6 years. IIRC the problems come when I'm trying to make a payment on certain websites. When I click on something, nothing happens.

Like you wrote - "... a "Continue" click results in a spinning load circle but No New Page. & THIS is with CookiesAutoDelete having all offerings Gray-listed..."

Or I get some unexpected and unrelated message from FF.

Using Internet Explorer resolves the problem.

I do not recall these problems with I buy from Amazon or Youtube, just when I buy from a website that is not related to Amazon or Youtube.

I concur-no problems with Amazon, but sometimes with other vendors or sites. The IE Edge addon solves the problem as it works on these sites.

Firefox could not open https://www.sugarsync.com/pf/D1814182_040_834149212
This is happening too often. No problem with Edge. The User's PDF Guide could not be opened.

I could open your link, but it is a link to a JPG file. Not much use. However, the JPG is an image of a webpage for "www.pinnaclesys.com/en/products..." so that's a start for you.

Don't know if it will help, but 85.0.2 is out... update and see if the issue still exists.

FWIW I use Nightly and was able to open the PDF manual on the pinnacle site.

I get this: Loading Pinnacle Studio User Guide... with no termination with the latest FF. They have a problem that Edge does not have. I hope they fix it soon, but I have the handy FF Edge Addon that saves the day.

This one that I found linked in web search results? http://help.pinnaclesys.com/pinnacle/ho ... studio.pdf

Does your Firefox have problems viewing/downloading other PDFs?
