Tweets not showing properly in Firefox

    This is a recent problem and I doubt it’s exclusive to myself.

    Firstly, this isn’t a problem in Chrome at all, but I prefer Firefox (as do many others). Also, it was fine in Firefox before maybe 1 1/2 weeks ago.

    Neither embedded Tweets nor the latest Tweets from my own account down the right are appearing in Firefox. Here’s a screen grab to show the issue:

    Yet in Chrome:

    What I’ve done to try and sort it: cleared cache, disabled AdBlock addons, asked 2 other people using Firefox (same problem)

    I’m on a WordPress hosted site (for the time being) so am not sure there is much I can do manually to fix it.

    Any help?

    Hi there,

    Your Twitter timeline works in my Firefox browser. The screenshot you shared is what the Twitter timeline looks like if Flash isn’t installed or enabled in your browser. You can check to see if Flash is enabled by visiting this site:

    Mozilla has information about installing and updating Flash in your Firefox browser here:

    If you have Flash installed and enabled and you still have trouble with this, please let me know! :)



    I definitely have Flash installed. Just uninstalled and reinstalled, but same problem.

    But if this is just an isolated problem with me, I’m not too fussed as long as it shows OK for others in Firefox.



    Hi there,

    It’s working just fine for me, so it isn’t an issue with Firefox generally. It should be fine for others using Firefox. :)

    If you want to try to track down what’s causing the problem in your browser, the next step I’d suggest is disabling all of your browser add-ons and extensions to see if something there is blocking Flash. If it works when your add-ons are disabled, you can try turning them on one-by-one to find the source of the problem.


    Thanks, I’ve figured it out! It was one of Avast’s settings blocking social networks.

    Thanks again for the help!



    You’re very welcome! I’m glad you were able to find the source of the problem. :)
