I have been having trouble opening many web pages on Mozilla Firefox. Eventually I get the dreaded "The Connection was Reset." I have tried updating the browser, resetting Firefox, disabling extensions, opening in Safe Mode, but these do not work. The only thing that seems to work is if I close out the browser completely, reopen it again, go to this same web page again and it will open. Please help. It is very frustrating to have this continually happen. Many web pages open right away, but many have this same problem on my PC. I have updated to the latest version at the moment, 33.0. I have a Dell PC running Windows XP. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I'd rather not have to start using Internet Explorer. Thanks for your help. This even occurs when I go to update Firefox. No data is transmitted. So I quit Firefox, reopen it, and then the download works.

I have created a couple of small pages that i have embedded into another web site. The embedded pages wont display on that site in FireFox but works on Chrome with no problem. How can I fix this so others on FireFox can view these embedded pages? I didn't know it couldn't be displayed until tonight and I have been looking for a fix since I was told. Some may see a solid white box and others see a grey box with a plugin is needed to view this content. However, if I view the pages I created on the server they work fine in FireFox. Just not when embedded into another web site. I'm stumped...

I'm seeing a really weird issue - https://rs2018.raffworks.com/ - on Firefox PC only, after opening a couple of the items up, the scrollbar completely stops working. Sometimes one item, sometimes three or four. But then bang! the scrollbar just locks up completely and it's impossible to scroll the page.

Has anyone experienced anything like this? Firefox on macOS is fine.

Operating system: OS X 10.9

Starting about four months ago, I began to see untitled and non-selectable windows spawning after my browser had been open for a while (i.e. after I visited a few sites). The number of these invisible windows grows over time, but are removed if I close the browser and start a new session. This has persisted through many new versions of Firefox.

I tried turning off all of the add-ons. Still happened.

I tried keeping track of what sites caused the problem. No correlation.

Today I uninstalled Firefox, using AppZapper -- which should have removed everything -- then did a new install. The only thing that I imported were bookmarks from the backup directory in my old Profile folder.

...and it's happening again. Here is a screen shot: http://imgur.com/ojcODd1

Any help would be appreciated.

Firefox renders text incorrectly. It uses DirectWrite, which is incorrect, it should use GDI to render text. In all the next updates please immediately rewrite the Microsoft Windows renderer sourcecode to render all text with GDI.

I finally got tired of Chrome tracking me all over the place, so I returned to Firefox. I'm using a PC with Windows 7.

However, since I started using Firefox again, periodically a blurred bluish screen overlays my browser. I can tell the browser's still in the background, and sometimes part of the page will flash clear and then vanish just as quickly. Waiting doesn't resolve the problem. Nothing consistently causes this, although I am usually in Facebook, but I have to close the browser, losing my tabs, and reopen the browser. Since I never know when it's going to happen or what triggers it, I can't figure out what's going on. I've seen other queries in the community support forum, but they aren't exactly what's happening to me. Flash is up-to-date, the browser's up-to-date, malware screen finds nothing.

I'm out of ideas, but I really, really, really don't want to go back to Chrome, so if any of you has any idea what's going on here and how to resolve it, I'd love to have your input. Thanks!

Since a recent update (to 55? - I'm now on 56.0b5), pages from NaturalNews.com are whited out down the middle. The page appears normally very briefly when it first loads, then the white-out superimposes. The pages show fine on Chrome.

This article: http://www.naturalnews.com/2017-08-15-censorship-alert-mozilla-planning-kill-shot-for-entire-independent-media-by-blocking-all-non-approved-news-in-the-firefox-browser.html - which of course I had to read on Chrome - suggests Mozilla is intending to decide what I should not be able to read on my favorite browser.

I've been using Mozilla since near the beginning - years before Firefox - and I feel deeply betrayed that a browser I have used continuously for decades and often championed is apparently doing something so despicable. I hope there is a good explanation.

I'm on a desktop PC running 64-bit Windows 10 Pro with latest updates. Firefox is 64-bit too.

Two days ago Firefox upgraded itself to 57 (Quantum). It worked fine, although without some add-ons that I depend on, and with a difficult-to-read color scheme. Tonight Windows updated itself and Firefox stopped working. The window minimized itself through a series of sequentially smaller windows until it was apparently just a few pixels wide and high. When I try to re-open Firefox I can OCASIONALLY get it to open a very small window and tried restoring it to its default state, but that didn't improve anything.

I'm running a Dell XPS 8700.

If you have any suggestions I'd like to hear them. I've been using Firefox for more than 10 years and I really like it, but this "upgrade" has been a fiasco for me. I'm currently using Edge, and I've downloaded Chrome which right now looks like my new browser.

In Ff 61 and 61.0.1 I keep on getting the About:preferences option page with absolutely no text in it at all. The tickboxes and outlines of the dropdown menu boxes are all there, laid out in the normal pattern, but no text so I can't see what is what to change anything.

1 Sometimes it opens with all text displaying as it should, but it is opening with no text more often than not.

2 When it opens with no text, if I repeatedly close and re-open, eventually it will open with one section(General, or Home, or Security etc) with text, the rest still not, then eventually another section etc until all are displaying the text. But it is a tedious process each time to get the text displaying in the section I'm wanting to view/change. Trying to select missing text does not work - it appears to be missing, not just invisible.

Oh, I should mention tjhat i am not having any display problems, text or otherwise, anywhere else - just on About:preferences.

I just got assaulted by the new Quantum 57.0.4 it is BLINDING. I am shouting sorry as I can barely see. My eyes are smarting and tearing and I can hardly read the tabs, the contrast between the dark tab and the name of the tab in a sort of muted white or grey makes the print difficult to read -- and any red fades out (as is natural in the dark, it's physics). So the screen is extremely bright, like white light, and the tabs are extremely dark, the letters obscured, any red logos tend to be muted into the dark, and I have a sudden splitting headache. I was fine with the previous Firefox. I just checked Safari -- I'm fine. I think this is a health issue.

Whenever I start Firefox after snapping it to the left side of my monitor, the window is offset slightly on the left and bottom. The same thing happens if I snap the window to the right edge of my monitor - Firefox starts back up slightly moved from the bottom and right then.

Not a big issue but bothering me nonetheless.

Firefox flickers on startup. This seems to be caused by the application opening up in a window, then maximizing, and drawing the content several times. Additionally, if I move my mouse across the window as it is open, the screen content becomes torn and "echoed" within the Firefox window.

This happens 100% of the time. This was an initial install. I tried "refreshing" Firefox. All add-ons were disabled.
