Anyone having problems with eBay today?

I can open my usual bookmarked page - My eBay Summary - but from there it's unresponsive.

If I enter something in the search bar it just has a think for a minute and then stops and goes nowhere, and not much else will work on the page either.

It's still not working properly here, fortunately I've got nothing going on at the moment, either purchasing or selling.

I expect it'll sort itself out eventually, but I'll keep trying a few different things in the meantime.

i find restarting the computer can work wonders if you dont fully shut down and restart manually after every session and use the time out method :dunno:

I've tried that: I closed the browser yesterday and that didn't work so I restarted the computer, and I always close it right down at night and fire it up again in the morning. So, it's had one restart, and one full shutdown and restart.

I'm sure I've had something similar before with eBay, but like I said I've got nothing going on at the moment via eBay so it's not a big problem, more of a puzzle.

Working OK here ayjay.
Your browser updated to the latest version?
Tried a different one?
The other thing that's had me a time or two with eBay is I've had a cookie that was needed and has been blocked.

Just tried a different browser and it works.

I'm only one (ish) version behind on Firefox (54.0.1 instead of 55.0.3) so I suppose I'd better update that - (and just pray that all my add-ons still work).

I use Chrome most of the time. Doesn't seem to give too many problems, apart from the over enthusiastic cookie blocker problem I had.
I have Firefox on the machine I use for some stuff. Very few add ons though, I'd forgotten about Firefox stopping add-ons working.
The trouble is they all do things slightly differently.
eBay is a PIA to be honest. It's the only site I can remember having a real problem with.
Adblock or similar can give problems with some sites as well. Stops new pages opening etc.
What usually seems to happen though is that a browser update fixes the problem.

Updated Firefox and it's no different, I'll just have to use the other browser for now if I need anything.

I had to do the same with my bank account for a while, it just refused to work at all with Firefox for a few months but does now.

Could be any one of the add ons.
It'll probably fix itself in the next few days. :dunno:

Run firefox in safe mode.

Help - Troubleshooting - Click: Restart Firefox with add-ons disabled

If all else fails

Reset firefox - something may of changed the proxy or dns settings

Help - Troubleshooting - Click: Refresh Firefox

I'm willing to try those, but how do I get out of it afterwards if it's no better?

Restart with add-ons disabled - how do I restart again with add-ons enabled, (or re-enable them once started)?

Refresh says it will remove all add-ons and customisations - does that mean a fresh install of all my add-ons etc?

Yes - After being in safe mode, close and restart firefox and it will go back to how it was

Yes - after a refresh you will have to setup your add-ons again

I'll give safe mode a try first then: have to get the pencil out to make a note of all the add-ons before I venture down the refresh route. :thumbright:
