Gmail NOT Working, error This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox only connect to it securely

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to www.gmail.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified. What Should I Do?

If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate. www.gmail.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided.

(Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

When I've been playing YouTube videos lately, I've noticed that a bunch of black boxes have been appearing over the player interface (The controls below the video) while the video is playing. Unfortunately, I can't provide a good screenshot, as the boxes come and go too quickly for me to get them. This issue still occurs if I restart Firefox in safe mode. I think it started happening with Firefox 37.

The LONG list of sites that I go to ,like Ebay.com, or WalMart.com, you know 'address'. I have like a list of 15 that wont go away, i click on the tiny box that is next to each address and it just sends me there. Or highlights it in light blue, then zips me there. I try to delete them and it just sends me there. I mean saving a few is ok, ones i go to alot, but ones that I have gone to once, are being saved on that list. And I would like to get rid of them. Hope this makes sense. I am using Windows 7, and obviously FireFox.

Recently the BBC revamped its News pages. When viewed on a Desktop PC with a screen resolution forced down to the equivalent of 1366x768 the smaller fonts look sharp.

However, if I view the same page on a laptop with a screen resolution of 1366x768 the fonts are distorted and broken. I have combined two screenshots to show the problem.

On the left of the image below is a closeup of the laptop view and on the right is the same page when viewed on a desktop with the screen resolution altered to give a vertical res of 768.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/812217/Laptop_Desktop_Screenshot.png

I tried to upload an image but the hourglass just kept rotating. I have checked the font settings for both PCs are they are identical. So are the visual settings for Windows 7 on both PCs.

I tried searching to see if others have reported the problems I see but couldn't find anything. I'm baffled as to why the BBCsite would look so bad. I hope you can assist.

Thanks, Ray.

Hi guys, I updated my browser with Firefox 37 and it crashes on me every time I use the Peacekeeper browser benchmark test. I've had no issues using the website in the past. Every time I update my browser I run the test to compare previous results as well as compare the results with Google Chrome.

It works fine with Chrome, but keeps crashing just 2 minutes in the test on FF37. I've tried running it in Safe Mode as well, but it still crashes. My plug-ins are up to date and I've tried a refresh as well. I did not have any other applications while running the test, just the browser was open with one tab. I'm running Windows 7.

Here is the Peacekeeper website: http://peacekeeper.futuremark.com/

I've sent the crash reporter to Mozilla.

Appreciate your help...thanks in advance!

Edit: included the Peacekeeper website.

I cannot log into my bank but can on other computers or another browser. Google earth won't work. I want to completely de install Firefox and start again but when I try it reloads all my settings with all the same problems. Refreshing did not work either. How do I get rid of all the settings as if I've never had Firefox and start from scratch?

Recently in this week, when I open up Firefox, it automatically opens up a new tab and loads Bing. It originally only loads up my previous tabs, and only activates the one I was showing last time. It still does pretty much the same thing, with the one I was reading on my last visit activated, but it then opens up Bing. I didn't pay attention to it the first time, just got suspicious since I never used Bing(kinda hate M$ to begin with) so that wouldn't be my last site visited. I did checked and it is the real Bing and not a phishing site of a virus, and simply closed the tab. I started to get annoyed by the third time, so I got into about:config and deleted all the results that returned Bing. Just two of those and none seems to matter at all to my current situation. I made sure that google is my only search provider, closed the browser and restarted it, Bing didn't pop up that time so I thought I'm fine. But the next day, same thing happened again, and don't have any results in about:config with Bing. My homepage is a blank page, and my new tab page is the Firefox default one(with google and some of the sites I pinned. I have some plug-ins and add-on installed, but none are related to Bing, and I installed all of them quite long ago, so it doesn't seem to be a recent plugin that screwed me. And no, I am not stupid enough to have Bing bar installed and not noticed it.

I did a search in my about:support page, and it returned no "Bing" results, and the "Search" results returned 2, Tineye and google scholar. The only Microsoft addons I have is sharepoint and lync.

This thread on the forum, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1038882, seems to be the closest to my situation, but none of the anwsers helped. If I open another Firefox window, it goes to the Firefox start page.


Thank you in advance to anyone who tries to solve this problem.

I'm on an iMac, OS 10.9.5, Firefox 37.0.2. When I either (1) click on the gmail link from Google's site or (2) type in the gmail url, I get a login screen that only asks for my user name and then allows me to click Next. On the next screen I'm asked for my password. When I enter my password, the screen refreshes but presents the same screen again, with blank fields. This isn't happening if I use Safari. Everything looks/acts right in Safari. I hardly ever use Safari, please don't make me start!

Ever since Firefox made Youtube videos only play in HTML5, no matter what quality setting I have on the video I'm watching, when I view the video on fullscreen it has low framerate. This problem does not happen with other video sites that uses Flash, like Twitch, Blip, or Dailymotion.

Is it software related to the browser or hardware related with it being HTML5?
