Question Connection resets with Firefox

I'm running Firefox ver. 61.0.2 (64 bit) on a Windows 10 PC over wi-fi. I'm not currently running any proxy servers.
About half the time I try to access a FALfiles page, the screen will freeze after loading partial page. At the bottom, it says "Transferring data from www.falfiles.com". Then after a few seconds, it brings up an error screen:
"The connection was reset .. The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading."

Sometimes refreshing the screen will complete loading the page; sometimes toggling "Tracking Protection" will allow it to complete (I suspect this just triggers a refresh). I've tried the usual tired old suggestions of clearing cache, deleting cookies, & "Refresh Firefox" to no avail. The problem seems to happen primarily on forum sites like FALfiles and AKfiles. Everything seems to work fine when I use Internet Explorer 11.
Anyone else have this problem? Any solutions?

Mine did that off and on, mostly during high use { the missus and kids on-line at the same time as me }. FireFox just updated a couple days ago, and I've not had any issues since.

The biggest problem with religion is those who claim to know Jesus, then turn around and deny Him with their lifestyle. That is what a unbelieving world, simply finds unbelievable.

Before you die, you should have a will with extra copies. The old saying "No one will screw you faster than family" is bloody well true.

Thanks for the suggestion. Yes, the problem could be server load dependent or maybe ISP load dependent (?). I'm the only user on my "home wi-fi net", so it doesn't seem like it should be a problem on my end of the connection. Maybe there's some parameter tweak to increase Firefox's connection reset timeout.

Firefox says it updated to the latest version August 9, so that hasn't helped.
