I tried to do this; If there is still a problem, Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} While you are in safe mode;

Type about:preferences#advanced<Enter> in the address bar.

Under Advanced, Select General. Look for and turn off Use Hardware Acceleration.

Poke around safe web sites. Are there any problems?

Then restart. This still did not allow me to get onto my school website, I need to get this fixed asap, my final is due and I need to do it online.
