Problem: Videos on the course pages appear randomly with or without Closed Captions (CC)

 activated. If CC appears activated, then everything functions normally. If CC appears 
 not activated, then the video area expands (normal) but has a light-colored background
 and does not start playing (the start/pause buttons appear, even change, but have
 no effect)

Browser:

 Using Firefox 24.0a1 and 24.0b5 (64bit): Random behaviour. Impossible to play. Tested with
 FF 16.xx (32bit), 17.xx (64bit) too.

Test:

 Go to edx.org, "View all courses", select 'edx Demo' (3 or 4 down), click 'register'
 You'll have to register to edx.org before being able to enter the course (free). 
 Then, go to Week1, Lesson1, and click any of the videos ('envelopes' at the top).
 Here, the page will block, can't select other option, and the video does not start.
 Temporarily switching to "Homework" and back enables the video.

Note: I had to edit the "Troubleshooting" info below, as it exceeded the 30,000 limit. I eliminated variables starting with 'print', which I suspect are not relevant.

For time time, both Firefox and Thunderbird keep notifying me of patches. I try to install, and they fail and tell me to install the larger update. I say yes, and it too fails. They tell me to do it manually. I go to the website and it tells me I'm uptodate. This is more annoying that anything else, but seems like a small glitch that could be fixed easily. Could you help?

Thanks.

I am using Beta 24, but downgraded to release 23 but still Google Groups doesn't load fully. All I get is the Google banner and no messages appear. If I force quit Firefox Beta or Release version it will load once and I have to force quit again to see the contents of a group. Also the groups main page doe not load. I am on Mountain Lion 10.8.4 How do I get Google Groups to load. I have emptied the History and Cache as the support articles say but nothing works.

How to ignore SSL certificate warning only for a specific internal subnet?

I understand my issue may be a little unique, but I am sure some people have come across it. I am working with some test gears that have either self-signed certificates or flat out invalid/expired SSL certificates. Since this is a lab/test environment I don't want to have to go through the trouble of generating my own certificates and load them on each test device, since they come and go quite a bit.

Is there a way to tell Firefox to ignore SSL warning, but only for a given subnet? For example, if the SSL certificate is presented by anyone in 10.11.12.0/24, accept it without question, but if it's coming from anywhere else, check its validity.

I doubt this will ever be a main feature for Firefox, but perhaps someone has come across an add-on that does this?

I'm observing very sluggish performance in Firefox on my Surface Pro using Windows 8.1 RTM. I can't quite track down what's going on, but some startups take as much as 10-12 seconds. Additionally, the overall browser performance is sluggish.

I've tried running in Safe Mode and it's still quite slow.

I follow many LinkedIn groups which send links to new discussions via email. When I click on a link to any discussion, it appears FF is opening the page in LinkedIn, but it ends up being blank. This has lasted about a week or so. I was hoping the FF update would fix this, but no. This happened several months ago, and I believe an update resolved it after a week or so. Suggestions?
