Furthermore, you could be experiencing issues with an addon. Perhaps because it’s not quite functioning as well or as fast as it used to. Or you’re getting errors as well as no links. It could be that the addon needs an update or a refresh, so removing it and adding it again could help to resolve issues like these.
