Hello bernh2016! I just

Hello bernh2016! I just joined the forum to let everyone know that I have this problem too!

I have Firefox Portable on a static mapped network share/drive, and everything was fine until version 50 came out. Once I updated to version 50, Firefox was no longer able to load any webpages. It would open the browser, but no pages would load. Luckily, I was able to install a version 49.x, and move my profile into that.

You are not alone in this bernh2016 Smile
