Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

I am working on Ubuntu 12.04 using Firefox 13.0.1. Out of the blue, Stack Overflow stopped responding. If I request http://www.stackoverflow.com then the index.html page returns, but before Firefox renders anything, it stops.

Firefox's error console shows nothing - not a single message.

I can open sister sites like http://askUbuntu.com without any problem. I can also open Stack Overflow with Chrome.

Sounds like a good time to try a new profile (reset Firefox), or ensure all caches are emptied. –  Arjan Jun 28 '12 at 4:50
Sounds like a problem with your browser. Not sure we can help you here on Meta. –  animuson Jun 28 '12 at 5:01
This question is more suited for AskUbuntu –  Ashu Jun 28 '12 at 5:57
Looks like it was a cashing problem of sorts with Firefox. Thanks. –  JacobusR Jul 2 '12 at 10:42
