Two days ago I started getting the "server not found" error, off and on, daily. It is happening on both my desktop iMac 10.7, and my Windows 7 laptop. I keep having to hit the "Try Again" butting, and sometimes, several times, before a web site will finally launch. The only two extensions I have on both, are the Adblock Plus and the Last Tab Close Button, both of which, have been installed on said computers for months and months and months.

I went in and changed a setting to the "auto detect proxy setting", hoping that would work, and it did not.

I have Firefox version 21 on both computers, and it seems the problem started shortly after this latest Firefox update, and at the SAME TIME on both computers.

I do not have virus protection on my iMac, nor on my Windows 7 laptop, at the moment, but I have run online software to check for anything, and no issues, so I believe, it is not that which is the issue.

The firewalls on both computers are working fine and no issues there either, I have not changed any firewall settings, on either computer. It couldn't be the firewall, in my opinion, because this annoying error message started happening on BOTH of my computers, at the same time; I work on my iMac in the morning, then switch to my laptop in the afternoon, and same issue continues on both, and started at the same time, on both.

Is there something broken in Firefox from this last update of the browser?

Does anyone have any suggestions as to why both computers are having this issue, at the same time?

I have not tried using I.E. yet on my laptop, I rarely have ever needed to use that browser, and I hate it, so I don't use it.

Any help or suggestions, would be appreciated.

I have tried to reset Firefox, ran Malawarebytes and Super Anti Spyware, ran Norton, and even tried by downloading TDSKILLER. Nothing is picking up this virus or getting rid of it. When I rest Firefox, it appears to go away; however. my PC runs slow. I did not get the toolbar or any adverse effect running IE though. Should I uninstall Firefox or will this make it just find another home in my laptop? Please help!

Each morning after I boot my computer up, FF is extremely slow to open. Sometimes it will take 2 to 3 minutes (if I have the patients to wait that long) before the default page loads. In addition FF seems very sluggish to open new pages. If I terminate FF and restart, FF works very quickly...and continues to work very well the rest of the day, till the next time I turn my computer back on. I run Win7 ultimate, i5 quad core, with 8gigs memory. Is there a setting, like the cache or something that I need to keep for FF to work well from the first attempt to load it.

I have seen a lot of answers here that don't appear to understand the real problem. The key here at one time I chose to DISABLE the reminder on the pop up. The "Do you want Firefox to remember this password" box doesn't pop up anymore.

All history has been cleared, all sites and passwords have been cleared. Under "Security" tab "remember passwords for sites box" is checked and under "Privacy" tab "Always use private browsing mode" is disabled.

The last time this happened, I uninstalled/re-installed Firefox. Is that the only solution?

I got a request to update Firefox to FireFox-22. The version I have now (FF21) is starting to cause me many problems, namely it is getting slow and not able to correctly show the images in places like facebook. I updated my java, but I am trying to update my system to 64-bit; for which this system was created. I know that 32 bit runs good on a 64, I just would love to put a stop to all the updating. I just installed firefox 21 and now there is a new version. It is so frustrating that I am going to get a MAC, it is a hassle to keep updating things when your an Artist and have deadlines to meet. When are you going to release a 64-bit version or do I have to use Internet explorer until then? I really don't want to use the 32-bit version of FF22 when I know there is going to be a new release within 6 months.

In my company's internet it is problematic to use https. However firefox always defaults to https connections (e.g. when making a google search from the search toolbar, or when typing an address bar starting with "www"); therefore always bringing up an "This Connection is Untrusted" alert page and making me have to manually go to the address bar and changing the "https" to "http". In Google Chrome and Internet Explorer it is very easy to set the browser to use http instead of https. However, I can't seem to find this option in firefox. Any ideas?

It was working perfect two days ago. Now I can't download anything with realplayer.Sometimes nothing happens when I click on "download video", other times it acts like it is downloading but at an accelerated speed but when I try to play it all I have is a black screen. Videos that I downloaded previously still play normally. I keep my cache and cookies cleared out constantly with Ccleaner.

I checked the forum for a solution and it said to disable RealPlayer Browser Record Plugin. but I can't find one with that exact name. I searched for that add-on/extension at Firefox and I can't find one with that particular name there either! So, what next? I tried to copy and paste the video URL into the realplayer new file box per realplayer help but that fails also. (it appears to download but all I get is a black screen during playback, no video or audio.) HELP!!

NOTE: it works in google chrome and IE10 - I have cleared the cache and cookies using CCleaner, I have not blocked or denied any cookies as I see thats common fault

I only just installed Firefox last night as I thought I would give it a try to compare against chrome.

Ive tried making sure allow cookies is enabled...always was, nothing in the 'exceptions' box
