    Various websites are not opening in any of the browsers on my mini iPad 4. They all open fine on my iPhone 6s. It's not all links just a few but the number appears to be growing each day.
    Any thoughts on this?
    Thanks

    Start with restarting your device.
    After that make sure you have no ad block app running. You can check that in Settings > Safari > Content Blockers
    Also make sure you don't have any proxy set up and are not on a VPN.

    I have no content blockers and had already shut the iPad down. It's not just safari the links are not opening in Chrome and Firefox either. Some links will open it but the list seems to be growing. I'm going to avoid having to do a reset.

    Is this only on wifi or also on cellular data?

    Ok. First go to Settings > WiFi, tap the (i) next to the wifi you're connected to and choose 'Forget This Network'

    Wait at least one minute and connect to that network.
    If you're having the same issue again, you should go to Settings > General > Reset and choose to 'Reset Network Settings'.

    Forgetting the network seems to have done the trick, can you explain to me why that would fix it? And thanks for your help.

    Sometimes some of the wifi settings get off a bit. Forgetting and reconnecting sets it straight. I experience that a good deal with my Comcast wifi. Sometimes just toggling wifi off, then back on helps. Other times I have to reboot my modem. And I do that through my Xfinity app.

    It can have several reasons. None of which I could elaborate here.
