Can't get past home page of instructables after upgrading to firefox 13

I can load the home page, but if i click on anything past it, it acts like it continually loads, nothing comes up on the page, it sticks at "Transferring data from www.instructables.com..." or "Read www.instructables.com" it seems to only have happened after upgrading to firefox 13. I have an old version of firefox aurora that came with the tor browser suite and tried instructables on there. worked perfect, and i was going to instructables on a regular basis before the update, so it's gotta be from the update right? what can i do to fix it?
P.S. It's not just the specific URL under "URL of affected site" because none of the pages will load after the home page.

did that solve the issue? i still believe it has more likely to do something with faulty cache (maybe the restart of the browser really triggered it );
if it was an issue with dns prefetching it would be rather strage since you already were on the domain instructables.com & wouldn't have had to resolve the domain for the subsites again. and since the server, your isp or your local hardware might not support ipv6 fully yet, it can always cause some glitches too...

  • I can't get my home page to come up right each time. A home page called: Bearshare comes up instead

    I have clicked on Tools, Options, General, and in the box
    "When firefox starts" I put suddenlink.net which is my home page. But if I close Firefox and open it again, my home page is replaced by search/Bearshare.com and I can't get rid of it.
    It is a hidden file and it won't let me delete it.

    On the page where you enter username and password after entering and pressing "Log in" the page just stays in place. If you look at the error log you see
    "Warning: Unknown property 'border-radius'. Declaration dropped.

  • Can't get past white loading a screen after restoring from time machine backup

    I am aware there are others threads of my problem however they date back years ago and after trying their solutions it still does not work.
    After using Time Machine to restore my hard drive from a backup, I can't get past the white loading screen with apple logo after system restart during restore process. Ive gone into disk utility and repaired hard drive - it's fine. So I know this is a software glitch. I've also tried resetting SMC & PRAM (whatever those mean). No success and i cannot get past the white loading screen.
    I'm running Mavericks (latest) on a late 2009 iMac. Thank you!

    If you don't already have a current backup, back up all data, then reinstall the OS.* You don't need to erase the startup volume, and you won't need the backup unless something goes wrong. If the system was upgraded from an older version of OS X, you may need the Apple ID and password you used.
    If you use FileVault 2, then before running the Installer you must launch Disk Utility and select the icon of the FileVault startup volume ("Macintosh HD," unless you gave it a different name.) It will be nested below another icon with the same name. Click the Unlock button in the toolbar and enter your login password when prompted. Then quit Disk Utility to be returned to the main Recovery screen.
    There are ways to back up a computer that isn't fully functional. Ask if you need guidance.
    If you installed the Java runtime distributed by Apple and still need it, you'll have to reinstall it. The same goes for Xcode. All other data will be preserved.
    *The linked support article refers to OS X 10.9 ("Mavericks"), but the procedure is the same for OS X 10.7 ("Lion") and later.

  • I hit Reset and lost everything.  I have the apple and a line under it.  How can I get the Home Page back?

    How can I get back to the Home Page?  I hit reset and lost everything.  I have a dark screen with the white apple and a line under it. 

    Wait until it finishes restoring. It would be a good idea to connect it to the charger so it won't run out of power during this process.

  • My macbook air won't load.  Says start up disk is full but I can't get the home page to open

    My Macbook air won't load.  Says the start up disk is full but won't open the home page so I can do anything about it

    Step 1   
    The first step in dealing with a startup failure is to secure the data. If you want to preserve the contents of the startup drive, and you don't already have at least one current backup, you must try to back up now, before you do anything else. It may or may not be possible. If you don't care about the data that has changed since the last backup, you can skip this step.
    There are several ways to back up a Mac that is unable to start. You need an external hard drive to hold the backup data.
    a. Start up from the Recovery partition, or from a local Time Machine backup volume (option key at startup.) When the OS X Utilities screen appears, launch Disk Utility and follow the instructions in this support article, under “Instructions for backing up to an external hard disk via Disk Utility.” The article refers to starting up from a DVD, but the procedure in Recovery mode is the same. You don't need a DVD if you're running OS X 10.7 or later. 
    b. If Step 1a fails because of disk errors, and no other Mac is available, then you may be able to salvage some of your files by copying them in the Finder. If you already have an external drive with OS X installed, start up from it. Otherwise, if you have Internet access, follow the instructions on this page to prepare the external drive and install OS X on it. You'll use the Recovery installer, rather than downloading it from the App Store.
    c. If you have access to a working Mac, and both it and the non-working Mac have FireWire or Thunderbolt ports, start the non-working Mac in target disk mode. Use the working Mac to copy the data to another drive. This technique won't work with USB, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth.
    d. If the internal drive of the non-working Mac is user-replaceable, remove it and mount it in an external enclosure or drive dock. Use another Mac to copy the data.
    Step 2
    You might be able to start up in safe mode even though you can't start up normally. Otherwise, start up from an external drive, or else use the technique in Step 1b, 1c, or 1d to mount the internal drive and delete some files. According to Apple documentation, you need at least 9 GB of available space on the startup volume (as shown in the Finder Info window) for normal operation.

  • How can I get past cellular or wifi activation after reseting?

    I'm giving away my iPad and wanted to erase all my data and such. I did this and now when it started back up, it is asking for me to activate the cellular or wi-fi -which I don't have and I don't want to do. How do I get past this step? Thank you!

    Somehow your iPad will have to have internet access to be activated.  If you don't have cellular or WiFi available, go some place that does.  That might be an Apple Store, or public WiFi place ...

  • How can I get my FRAMESET page, which loads blank frames in Firefox 22.0 but works in IE7, to work in Firefox?

    This is my current page, which works in IE 7:
    < HTML>< HEAD>< TITLE>My Calendar of Events< /TITLE><br>
    < base href="C:\Calendar\2013\"></HEAD ><br>
    < FRAMESET BORDER=5 ROWS="60, *" ><br>
    < FRAME NAME="navigate" SRC="navigate.html" SCROLLING="NO" MARGINWIDTH=0 MARGINHEIGHT=0 NORESIZE ><br>
    < FRAME NAME="content" SRC="load.html" SCROLLING="AUTO" MARGINWIDTH=5 MARGINHEIGHT=0>
    < /FRAMESET >< /HTML><br>
    I later added the followinging lines, the 2nd in the <head> section (to no avail):
    < !DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd" >
    < meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" >
    The frames seem to load in Firefox 22.0, as I can see the border, but no content is displayed. I CAN get the content to display in Firefox if I open the frames manually, either by typing in the addresses or dropping the pages into a window so it 'must' be the FRAMESET page. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    EDIT:
    I forgot to "break" the html code, so it didn't show in the question. Found the Edit option, repaired questin.

  • Can't get past gray start up screen after failed software update

    Uh-oh. I think I'm in trouble now.
    This afternoon I was trying to do a software update on my iBook. After about an hour and a half, there hadn't been any progress, so I figured it had frozen, and forced it to quit. When I tried to start it back up again, it comes up to the gray start up screen, and then just sits there and spins. Here's what I've tried so far:
    Safe mode- doesn't work, just sits at gray screen
    Using option key- shows my HD, I select it, sits at gray screen
    Using OSX installer disk- I'm able to get to disc utility this way. SMART status says verified, ran repair disk and it found no errors. Tried to run repair permissions and it just sat there for about 3 hours with the bar spinning blue and white, but not actually filling up. It wouldn't allow me to stop repair permissions, so I had to force it to stop. I thought about reinstalling, but I don't have enough space on my HD.
    So, that's where I am at this point. Now I find out how I've managed to mess things up so completely, and cross my fingers that someone will please, please, please have an answer. Thanks!

    I tried to backup my iBook HD using target disc mode, but it wouldn't work. The target computer (G4 running 10.4) would come up to the blue screen with the FireWire logo bouncing around, and would go no further.
    I think the problem there is that you need to boot the iBook with the T key held down, not the G4(10.4). What this does is mounts your iBook's drive on the G4. The bouncing FireWire logo should be on your iBook, not your G4. This means that you connect the two machines, hold down the T key on the problem computer to mount the volumes onto the working computer.
    There shouldn't be a compatibility problem because it mounts it as an external hard drive (not necessarily a boot volume.)
    Will the disc come out of the iBook when there is no longer a FireWire cable connecting to both computers?
    Let me know...
