SSL on v.36.0.1 Padlock and Identity Info Missing

When I visit an https:// url on Firefox version 36.0.1 I am getting an exclamation mark instead of a padlock::

SCREENSHOTS:: http://www.silkblooms.co.uk/images/prototypes/ssl3.jpg http://www.silkblooms.co.uk/images/prototypes/ssl2.jpg http://www.silkblooms.co.uk/images/prototypes/ssl1.jpg

The same websites are showing identity information and padlocks when I use other browsers like Chrome or IE so the problem is with FF. I have no proxy in the tools>options>advanced>network>settings (so it's not that).

Hello everyone

I think that recently I had to update Flash version and it was all okay even after the update. But yesterday videos on YouTube all of a sudden stopped displaying. Just like that, in the morning they were okay and then around of noon, all of sudden blank. Didn't install anything new or something.. now I only get White screen with no any border, just an empty spot where the video should be. Beside that, any other flash content [i.e. videos on Facebook, vimeo are not displaying as well]. All I get on YouTube is constant "loading" indicator beside the cursor which keeps blipping.

Now the strange thing is first - I have no problems with this on other browsers like i.e. Google Chrome, and second.. IF I uninstall Flash from my PC, I can watch YouTube videos on Mozilla although the max resolution is 720p.. and vimeo/facebook videos will still not work. How da heck is that even possible? O.o

I've tried a lot of different things and nothing helped.. here are some of the them [I hope I won't forget something]

- Uninstalling Mozilla/Flash then installing them again - Uninstalling Flash, then letting Mozilla suggest me to add it - Disabling/Deleting all of my extensions - Turning off that hardware acceleration thingy - Deleting cookies from YouTube then adding them to exceptions - Clearing out whole history/cache or whatever - Right clicking on the "empty space" where video should be.. to see if any options will pop-up [Of course they don't, there is no video to start with] - Scanning for viruses [Nothing]

Can anyone please help me? Any suggestion, what can I do?

I have found a work around for all the people having server not found problems with FF36.

If you manually set your network adapter DNS to an external DNS server (as opposed to your local ISP) then the problem goes away. I set mine to use the two google DNS servers:

 Preferred: 8.8.8.8
 Alternate: 8.8.4.4

Not a clue why this works but it is 100% successful on my desktop PC, whereas before I could hardly connect to a webpage with FF36 without multiple page refreshes and much frustration, even though FF35 was fine and rolling back to FF35 was also fine.

Something has changed in FF36 and either the way it handles DNS or the way it works with some network adapters.

It is nothing to do with add-ons, profiles or firewall software as I have tried all of these things and only the DNS change made a difference. I even copied over a full working profile and the program files directory for Mozilla from my portable which was having no problems and the problem still existed on the desktop, which is why I started looking at the network adapater since everything else between the working PC and the non working one was identical.

Hopefully this will help the developers to pin down the real cause of the problem and fix it in the next release.

Ever since I "refreshed" Firefox 36, a small black bar has appeared in the extreme upper right corner of the Firefox screen that exactly covers the Minimize/Resize/Exit buttons. Although the controls work properly when I click in the left/center/right area of the black bar, why is the bar there, in that exact spot, in the first place? And how do I get rid of it?

So I lost my profile when FF updated, and had to create a new one. From what I can tell, to do what I want to do I need a Chrome Folder inside the new profile folder. There was none, so I created one. I also created a .css file named exactly how I put it in the title, is this the correct name, or should "user" be my profile name?

Last but not least, here is the exact text I have in the file, nothing more, or less, just this:

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */
#TabsToolbar { height: 15px !important; }
#PersonalToolbar {height: 4px !important;}
#BookmarksToolbar {height: 4px !important;}
#MenuToolbar {height: 4px !important;}
#tabbrowser-tabs { height: 15px !important; }
#TabsToolbar { margin-top:-15px!important; }

Saved the file. Restarted FF, no effect. Changed numbers, still no effect.

TIA for help.

p.s there is likely some redundacy there for sure, please advise. I want all 3 in title of thread smaller (as in less height)

I run a forum that uses Invision Power Board as the forum software. In Firefox 35.1 and below, when replying to a thread or starting a new thread, text would be correctly displayed like this: -

http://i.imgur.com/woze0ip.jpg

In Firefox 36, once you hit the right hand edge of the box that you type your post into, rather than it automatically moving down to the next line, it just continues on to the right and a horizontal scrollbar appears, like this: -

http://i.imgur.com/xkVP5Ck.jpg

I have tried upgrading to the latest beta version of Firefox 37, but the problem remains. I have also tried restarting Firefox in safe mode, with all extensions disabled, but it's the same. As soon as I downgrade back to 35.1 again, it works fine.

Is this a bug in Firefox? Is there an advanced setting I can change somewhere so that this doesn't happen?

Thanks!

I have googled and used the mozilla solutions for safe mode, deleting and creating a new profile(deleted all files) disabled all plugins. I found an issue where clicking ask to activate does not drop down to select another option. I searched for the plugins folder thinking I could delete all plugins and start over. Nothing I have tried has worked at all. I also uninstalled and reinstalled the latest version. I noticed the version installed is under program files(x86) which is where I thought 32bit apps are put? Anyway even selecting text on a page and right clicking doesn't work

Shockwave flash is causing hangs giving 'firefox is not responding' message and slows my internet experience. I know its the flash add-on because when i disable it, firefox performs much better. I've tried all the suggestions concerning flash problems on this site and nothing has worked. I am running win 7 64 bit (home premium). plus Firefox 36.0.1. All drivers appear to be up to date but i will double check.

my question is.... is there a way to easily disable/enable flash w/o going into the add-ons manager? Depending on what i'm doing, i'm in add-ons manager to either enable it when i need it or to disable it when firefox is slow and hangs.

I've gotten to the point where i just open add-ons manager in a tab and leave it open because i know i'll probably be in there turning flash on or off depending on how its effecting my machine.

Also, i tried running flash in 'ask to activate' mode, but you have to reload the page so it can find the add-on.

This problem has been ongoing for a couple of months now; Firefox performance used to be so much better but this problem doesn't seem to be getting resolved. I like firefox, I really don't want to go to another browser.

Thanks, Duke

Enter key or Paste+Go don't work in my Firefox address bar. I have searched, uninstalled, deleted Firefox folders and reloaded Firefox twice, turned off my add-ons, created a new profile, ran in Firefox safe mode, refreshed Firefox, scanned for malware using multiple tools and found no malware, deleted all matter of search bars, etc. Nothing resolves the address bar non-functionality.

No, I can't type "about:config" in the address bar and press enter to forward a file.

My wife says she loaded a Java update that didn't work as intended. Wonderful. I unloaded all things Java and still no good.

Thankfully, my homepage is set to Google and I can search in Google and click the links to navigate.

I appreciate any help that you can provide. Thanks.

Suddenly my FF started acting weird. Most/all pictures seems to be loading, but it doesnt seem to completely render pages. I've included a screenshot of facebook.com. Notice the black lines, which are everywhere, and the lack of any color. I have spent the better part of two hours googling possible solutions, but to no avail. So far I've tried reinstalling a few times, making sure to delete the mozilla folder in %appdata%, restored to default settings, changed theme, tried different accessability options, making sure (atleast i think) that JS is running, and tried my best to describe the issue, and use google image search. Bot none of the proposed solutions I've seen so far has done anything for me.

Seems like i'm not able to upload the screenshot, but here's a link: http://bildr.no/view/eU93ZFdG
