I don't know what type of Mac you have, but I would check to make sure your microphones are on. That is really all I can think of right now...sorry, in a rush this morning.

Yes, that tip worked. But why cant you answer "Siri" straight after, Siri closes when it should wait for another question or request.
You allways have click that squigely coloured thing first!

Example:
open firefox
firefox opens..
open bookmarks.....nothing happens?
