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, 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'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.
