If Server Cannot be Reached, Try Again in Firefox

Sometimes when you open a web site, you get an error that the server cannot be reached. You can do nothing much except try to reload that webpage by pressing the refresh F5 button on your keyboard. If you are using the Mozilla Firefox web browser, then instead of pressing F5 again and again, you can use the Try Again add-on for Firefox. TryAgain keeps trying to load a webpage when the server cannot be reached. Sometimes you know that you have entered the web site address correctly, but the page will not load the first time around. Maybe your wireless connection dropped or the server hosting the website is temporarily down; whatever the reason, TryAgain will try and try again. Here is how :

  1. Visit https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/tryagain/ in the Mozilla Firefox browser.
  2. Click on the green colored Add to Firefox button to install the Try Again add-on.

  3. It will prompt you for confirmation. Click on Install Now to proceed. Restart your web browser to complete the installation.
  4. After Firefox has restarted, you will be ready to use the Try Again add-on. Now when you happen to have that server down problem, you will be shown a different kind of page. This page shows results from Down for everyone or just me and Uptime Auditor for the site in question.

  5. The Try Again add-on will try to load that site again and again for 5 times. You can cancel this by clicking on the Stop trying button.

Now you do not have to scratch your head over a site not loading in your web browser. The Try Again add-on can make your life easy by trying to resolve the server problems for a web site and presenting many workarounds.
