Can you verify which type of AT&T Uverse you have? They have renamed

I have the Debian 8 version of Firefox installed and have encountered a
rather strange problem.

It seems that when my wife uses Firefox to access her Ebay account she
encounters a random error when a popup window says that the DOS
connection has been lost. There are a number of strange things about
this particular error message as we are using AT&T Uversen not DSL. Also
when this message is showing I can ping the internet with any trouble.
Further when I log into Ebay I can't seem to duplicate the problem, nor
do any of the URL's that I have on Speed-dial have the same problem.

Finally, She has not encountered the problem when using Firefox on my
Window 10 Laptop.

Has anyone else seen this problem?

Yes, I definitely do have Uverse, not DSL. I had DSL from 2003 until 2014, or so, when it got too expensive and then switched to Uverse. In fact one of the AT&T repair men told me that I probably wouldn't be able to get DSL back, even if I wanted to. According to him they were planning to phase out DSL service.
