    Just happened tonight.

    I need to get some fence panels ordered as i'm running out of time & just noticed that my usual browser - FireFox, wont load TopCashback. It just constantly says "connecting...".

    So i tried topcashback in Google Chrome - not a problem.

    Strange? Why is this?

    Fine here, what antivirus are you using and does it put any browser extensions in Firefox and do you have any other extensions ?

    Try temporarily disabling them and see if that works.

    What OS are you using XP, Vista, W7, W10, Mac or Linux ?

    I had similar a few months ago. Pages on the Now TV site wouldn't open properly using Firefox but worked with Opera. The pages now opens with Firefox. I don't remember doing anything but Firefox is now on a newer version and plug ins are updated.

    In the end i actually left the browser for about 5 minutes & it finally loaded. Happens from time to time for some reason.
