Ask HN: LinkedIn and Firefox
1 point by ramtatatam 46 days ago | hide | past | favorite | 1 comment
I recently updated Firefox to version 86.0 and started noticing problems with LinkedIn. Sometimes it would not load at all and I have to clear cookies and select privacy settings.

I don't know if this might be a coincidence but I have set myself on a quest of backing up my LinkedIn contacts, issues started appearing after I visited a few hundreds of my contacts.

Is it only myself experiencing those issues? There was recently lots of news about new privacy features introduced by Firefox, I wonder if LinkedIn was abusing privacy and this now bubbles up with Firefox blocking it?

I use Firefox on Windows as my primary LinkedIn browser and have not experienced these issues (or really any). I login about once a week for maybe 30 minutes to approve connections, maybe post some content etc.
