Reddit quit working for me on all my PCs. Had 2.49.5 then upgraded to 2.53.2 today and no change. Reddit works with Firefox.

What does "quit working" mean? What error message (if any) are you seeing?

No error messages. I can view posts but can make posts or reply to posts. Usernames do not appear on the main page of sub reddit. It's as if one is not logged in. But works OK fine with FF.

Have you tried starting the program in Mozilla safe mode?

Dan,
No, I have not tried. Please refresh my memory on how to start safe mode.

A thread in Pale Moon (that I have not looked at, much like I have not looked at this thread) that most likely applies, Reddit.com - infinte scroll and other issues on 28.9.3 64bit as of today.

I reverted to 'old Reddit' which made things like they used to be. Not sure how long they'll leave that active.
