web page links loading multiple pages

Postby Richard » Fri Jan 17, 2020 6:27 pm

I have noticed recently that clicking on some website links (often pdf) causes endless pages to load, out of control until I shut down my browser and even then they repeat the process so that I have to shut down two or three times.
I have used my virus scanner but can find no fault.
It may be a bug or malware in Firefox but I can't find any help.
Has anyone else experienced multiple page loading issues?

Phew, no, thank goodness, but if it keeps happening, the Techadvisor site's forum is an excellent and friendly source of help.

If you want me to post a question on there, just let me know.

Had my own issues lately. The Three network isn't very good around here, the signal often goes for a while (never been any signal in the Old Town), so websites won't load, just freeze - and I have to switch to using the PC. I only use Three because it's cheap and I don't use the smartphone massively - but if it gets worse again, I'll have to change to somebody else.

Thanks seahermit!
I have now refreshed Mozilla Firefox and will see if I still get the same problem.
Kind regards,
Richard
