Firefox does not load attachments (images, pdf etc)

I have a problem when using Firefox in our Confluence (locally hosted)

Firefox does not load attachments, such as image files, pdfs, and other documents.
When clicking on the file attachment or image, it just keeps loading. I can choose to download the file no problem, but we would like to be able to view the file(s) in-line in.

Creating a new page in Confluence using Firefox causes the same loading to continue endlessly.

Works fine in Chrome and Safari.

Opening attachments on other Confluence sites works fine in Firefox, so it might be a configuration problem at our end.


Any ideas?

It's probably not a problem with Confluence. 

That's, I think, a question to ask directly at Mozilla.
