Question

why has firefox started assuming i am requesting secure connections for all websites and disabled scripting and styling on the ones I can access?

I have happily been a user of firefox for six months. after downloading the beta version, several "bad" things have been happening. Most web page requests (eg, to firefox help, google.com) result in the message that I have requested a secure connection and the site does not have a valid certificate. When I then add that site to the exceptions sites, the page loads but only the html -- no script no styles- just like the old days. Further, after uninstalling (plus erasing all personal data in the process) and reinstalling version 18 I get the same behavior plus in the only case I have attempted my log ins to wsj.com's subscriber site hang-presumably from scripting issues. Furthermore, I could not access this and previous help pages while on firefox -- this query is utilizing the evil ie9 to gain access.
