I have been having trouble opening many web pages on Mozilla Firefox. Eventually I get the dreaded "The Connection was Reset." I have tried updating the browser, resetting Firefox, disabling extensions, opening in Safe Mode, but these do not work. The only thing that seems to work is if I close out the browser completely, reopen it again, go to this same web page again and it will open. Please help. It is very frustrating to have this continually happen. Many web pages open right away, but many have this same problem on my PC. I have updated to the latest version at the moment, 33.0. I have a Dell PC running Windows XP. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I'd rather not have to start using Internet Explorer. Thanks for your help. This even occurs when I go to update Firefox. No data is transmitted. So I quit Firefox, reopen it, and then the download works.

I have created a couple of small pages that i have embedded into another web site. The embedded pages wont display on that site in FireFox but works on Chrome with no problem. How can I fix this so others on FireFox can view these embedded pages? I didn't know it couldn't be displayed until tonight and I have been looking for a fix since I was told. Some may see a solid white box and others see a grey box with a plugin is needed to view this content. However, if I view the pages I created on the server they work fine in FireFox. Just not when embedded into another web site. I'm stumped...

There are two forms of email display, I want the old one! There used to be a way to toggle between the different displays. Now I find myself in the wrong (new) display and find no way to go back to the old one that I have used for years as my preference.

How do I toggle out of this mess?

It's late Wednesday night. I'm quitting and going to bed!

I've encountered a strange glitch with YouTube specifically, only in Firefox. Namely, numerous pieces of the interface - the icons on buttons (like the Like/Dislike buttons) and things, menu buttons, the logo in the upper left - are simply invisible. It's most noticeable along the top. I've attached a screenshot. You can see the logo is absent, there's no button for the upper left dropdown (even when I'm logged in), and there's even no magnifying glass in the search bar button. These are only missing in Firefox. Strangest of all, these DO appear when I access the site via a proxy. I've tried mucking with my hosts file and flushing my DNS, as well as running Firefox in safe mode and resetting it, to no avail. It's possible I'm overlooking something, but I haven't yet noticed similar problems on any other sites.

My Firefox screen goes solid white or solid black on all open tabs. I have to close Firefox and restart it to restore the windows. Nothing seems to trigger it. Firefox can be idle in the background while I'm working with another program and this will happen or I can be away from the computer and it will just be sitting idle and it will happen. I don't believe it has actually happened while I was on a web page on Firefox. Help!

When I'm using Google+ Hangouts, after a while the window starts glitching out. When I mouse over anything clickable the chat scrolls up by itself, the chat box moves halfway up the window and the video/webcam area goes half black/white then it all goes back to normal a split second later. This keeps happening until I refresh, but then it starts happening again. http://i7.minus.com/iFkcflNZvwmx5.png That's a screenshot of how it looks.

Nothing I've tried has solved it. I've reset firefox, re-installed, created new profiles, restarted my computer, all my drivers are up to date, my memory and cpu usage is minimal. Everything else works fine it's just this that doesn't.
