Hello dirich_gwen,

Do you by any chance have any HP Printer software  ?

I'm asking, because I see this mentioned as the culprit in some threads.

Disabling the HP software solved the problem.


Then I found this old thread .....

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

I have absolutely no idea - I'm so sorry .....

As you marked my post as Chosen Solution; I thought that your problem was solved - you apparantly marked my post inadvertently.

You can remove that mark by clicking on the "Undo" button to the right of that post - that way others might look at this thread and hopefully come up with a solution for you.

Start your Computer in safe mode with network support. Then start Firefox. Try Secure websites. Is the problem still there?

I keep thinking about this and I wanted to ask :

I don't use a mouse myself, but in case you do : does this also happen when you use your touchpad  ? If it only happens when you use a mouse; would it be possible to try a different mouse (borrow one from someone, maybe) ?

'Did some more searching and I will now paste some quotes I found in other threads :

"Fixed my problem - it was the graphics card. Too much dust in it, just needed a clean"


"I found out that the problem was caused by a faulty nVidia graphics driver."


"Two things to try:

1) change your cursor (type "cursor" into the Start Menu or find the Mouse Properties in the Control Panel)

2) Install or reinstall the recommended drivers for your mouse "


Could anything apply to your situation ?
