Strange browsing problem

Post by rockh1 » Wed Aug 14, 2019 2:47 pm

Today, my Firefox for Linux became extremely slow to load sites, if it loads them at all. After trying for some minutes, I get a Corrupted Content Error. Refreshing the page does not help, same thing after clearing the cache. Chrome works just fine.

Any thoughts?

cleared history, cookies, and reverted to the mint homepage. :-( In addition, I tried assigning the ip, uninstall/reinstall. No joy

Did you try the standard debug methods for browsing problems: safe mode, new profile?
