Firefox problem – all my tabs indicate “connecting”

I had a problem with my Firefox today (I’m on 17.0.1) – when I loaded a page the Tab was titled “Connecting”, it didn’t put the name of the website in the tab. I tend to have multiple tabs open simultaneously, moving between them, so not having each tab labelled was confusing.

It seems there may be some conflict between “Tab Mix Plus” (is Tab Mix Plus the greatest Add-on, or what? – its functionality is the number 1 reason I use Firefox as my main browser) and the IE Tab 2 extension (also a great extension, BTW).

To fix the problem, go here:

https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/183644/ie_tab_v2_enhanced_ie_tab-4.12.22.2-fx-windows.xpi?src=devhub

and install an update for IE Tab 2. Restart Firefox … and … fixed!
