This is so annoying. The web pages flicker or blink especially when the cursor is is passed over the top of the webpage where the toolbar, shortcuts and open tabs are. Sometimes it blinks even if the mouse is not being used.

Some suggestions that I have tried are to change the accessibility option and check or uncheck to navigate with cursor within pages with no luck. 

Will have to change browsers as this is very bothersome and inconvenient. I do want to stay with Firefox as Chrome has not been stable either.

Whenever I attempt to load up Gmail I get this message: http://i.imgur.com/i7wNMrS.png

But when I go into private mode I can view Gmail without a problem. Is there a fix for this? I'm trying to switch from my bugged Chrome to Firefox, but if this can't be fixed then I'll go back.

As you can imagine this makes it very difficult and irritating to work in firefox. Hopefully you have a solution for this. Thanks, Jane

This is driving me mad.

  I have tried every suggestion from what seems like everywhere to remove this pesky thing...but still it remains.  From uninstalling it from Control Panel (it's not there) ...uninstalling it from Add-ons/Plug-ins/Extensions (not showing there either) ...to using Bit Defender...Malwarebytes...and now (finally) Spy Hunter 4.  Have also  tried resetting Firefox to default.  Absolutely nothing works.  Is this programme now resilient to every attempt to remove it?

After installing some software, the URL "http://hi.ru/?10" keeps opening in a new tab every time I launch Firefox. It also took over my homepage in Chrome and IE, but it was easy to fix those. For some reason though, it keeps ignoring the homepage I changed it to in my Firefox settings. It just keeps bringing up this stupid Russian Web site. I've tried looking for it in about:config but don't see anything there. I've looked for Add-Ons, but nothing there. No toolbars that could be doing it also.

It does seem similar to the problem addressed in this article, but I'm using Windows 8.1, so it's not a simple shortcut that I can edit. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/wrong-home-page-opens-when-i-start-firefox-how-fix?esab=a&as=aaq

I first saw this error last night first with tumblr and then tried to go to the mozilla support site to see what the problem is but got the same error. So then with the help of Google, I discovered going into the "about:config" and setting the "security.ssl.enable_ocsp_stapling" to FALSE to work as a temporary fix for my problem and things began to work fine.

Today, I set "security.ssl.enable_ocsp_stapling" back to TRUE but still got the same "Invalid OCSP signing certificate in OCSP response. (Error code: sec_error_ocsp_invalid_signing_cert)" message when opening tumblr and mozilla support.

The solution for most people seemed to be to give it time but I wonder if I'm having a different problem to others since sites like twitter and droxbox appeared broken when I tried opening them. But when "security.ssl.enable_ocsp_stapling" was set to FALSE, they seem to work fine.

I got a warning on my computer screen today saying that my computer was in danger from a virus. The warning gave a phone number that I should call to give me instructions on how to eliminate the virus. I am concerned that this warning is actually a scam so I do not want to call the number provided unless I can verify that it is legitimate. Can you verify that it is, or is not, normal for firefox to warn of a virus and provide a phone number for the user to call? Thanks.

Since using a smartphone I have got used to using OK Google and find that speaking a long query in the browser results in more relevant results. I thought I would add it to Firefox to make browsing easier. I can't find an add-on for this and wonder if it is compatible with Firefox. If not, is there an OK/hello/ready Firefox that will allow me to speak instead of type into the browser.

Hi. Recently, playing YouTube content using the HTML5 player has become impossible due to playback problems (sound/video are choppy, content loading becomes extremely slow, browser becomes unresponsive).

Playback with Chrome, no issues. Reverting to Flash playback, no issues. Browser cache has been wiped, didn't fix the issue.

So it seems to be a problem with one of the last Firefox updates or perhaps some recent change on the YT site. Any ideas?

  • Sorry, I just noticed there's another topic further below similar to this one. If at all possible, feel free to merge.

After the 33.0 update, I noticed that typing or backspacing in any field on a webpage or even in the Firefox address bar is slow to echo, about a 1 second lag. Also, selecting typed text (to delete it, etc.) by a quick click-drag doesn't select the whole area, yet when I click in the dialog to deselect, the portion that wasn't showing as selected at first, becomes selected for a moment before the whole string selection hilite disappears.

This makes the browser very cumbersome to use.

This appears to be new to 33.0. I tried resetting Firefox, but that didn't fix the problem. No issue in IE 11.0, so I don't think its malware. I also keep all s/w up-to-date, and run avast/zonealarm for security. I've never had a malware infection on this machine. Win7 Home Premium 64-bit, 8GB RAM. Resource utilization is low, so no out-of-control processes.

I did apply the latest Microsoft "Patch Tuesday" updates on 10/15, the same day that I updated Firefox. This may complicate the diagnosis. But again, IE wasn't affected, so how is the Firefox UI different for basic keyboard/display I/O?

If there's an easy way to "downgrade" to the prior 32.0.3 revision, I could try that to confirm. Please help!

But this domain is blocked by company firewall and Firefox can't download it and caches every time I close it.

Is there a way to install the plagin manually if i obtains the file?

Recently I update Firefox and now I can't acces to my router main page any more. Before I get a window that ask me to add an exception, cause the certificate ... as I check the remember the exception it always ask me for the exception. was not so bad as I have ask any time for the exception and finally I have acces to it . But now NO WAY !!!

I still go to internet, all my computers are connected but I could'nt reach the router to change some settings and add news computers ( my settings are very secure on my router to add a device I have to enter the MAC address). I still get my printer at 192.168.3.141, the modem at 192.168.1.1 but when I want to go to the router main page 192.168.3.1, I get this message :

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to 192.168.3.1. Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s). (Error code: ssl_error_no_cypher_overlap)

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

______________________________________________


I read that FF change some settings on the new versions and last time I enter on my router without problems was on October 10.

Now I have installed the 33.0.1 my OS Is XP.

PLEASE HELP WITH THAT ISSUE

EDIT: I suspect that my problem have to be with the certificate manager because I see it change a lot on this version, and have a place to add exception security like the old one that I use to have to check in the past.

it look like the same problem as me:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1042889

I don't understand almost nothing about certificates then I didn't find any tutorial explaining how to deal with.  Also I sow that was totally diferent have some ssl things to check and now is a OCSP ??? for me all still chinesse (lol) I only want someting very simple: reach my router !!!.

I only see on authorities many times my router address, I try to add an exception and say the certificate couldn't be found. I don't know how to play with all this settings , but I'm shure have relation to my problem. Sorry, my english it's not the best.

So this has been happening starting just recently, only a few days ago. When doing random tasks or just browsing, with either 1 tab open or 8 tabs open, Firefox will sometimes freeze indefinitely, though the cursor still changes to an I-beam over inputs and a pointer over buttons and link elements. I can minimize the window using the minimize button, but when I open the window again from the taskbar the window is now completely white. If I have two instances of Firefox running when this happens, the other freezes in the same way.

I'm not getting any crash reports and when I close the window or end the task from the task manager it acts as if I had normally closed a window, not restoring the previous session as Firefox would do if it actually crashed and the crash report handled it.
