I was trying to load facebook.com and this is error it get


The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

any idea how to resolve this?

I've noticed recently that Firefox stopped playing YouTube videos and showing only black screen where supposed to be a video. So after a lot of research, many people claimed that this is flash player problem. I tried to install earlier version but that didn't change anything. So I uninstalled Firefox and downloaded older, but stable version (34.0.5). And voila! YouTube shows videos again. After a week I noticed that YouTube again shows black screen box. Unintentionally, I opened Revo Uninstall and saw that there's TWO Firefoxes installed - one is that I personally installed and another is newest Firefox 37.0.2. So I uninstalled latest Firefox, but unfortunately it also uninstalled my older version Firefox. So this time I again installed older Firefox (34.0.5) and made that it never look for updates and won't install them. YouTube started to play well. After a few days, again Youtube doesn't show videos, only sound plays, and you can see actual video frames by pointing cursor on video time line. So I checked installed applications and AGAIN found mysteriously installed latest Firefox with the old one. So can anybody help me to stop latest Firefox automatic installation and only leave the old one? Any solution would be very appreciated.

Tried two ways:

(1) Adding through the automated mechanism whereby I am prompted about the untrusted self-signed security certificate of the URL. When I clicked on the "Confirm Security Exception" button nothing happens. I don't see the URL being added to the exception list.

(2) Adding manually through the Option Menu. The URL was truncated into xxx.xxx.x.xxx only. I still cannot access to my firewall.

Ever since Firefox made Youtube videos only play in HTML5, no matter what quality setting I have on the video I'm watching, when I view the video on fullscreen it has low framerate. This problem does not happen with other video sites that uses Flash, like Twitch, Blip, or Dailymotion.

Is it software related to the browser or hardware related with it being HTML5?

The problem started when I got back from travel about 4 days ago. I was gone for two weeks and used my tablet when on travel. Now whenever I try firefox on desktop PC, it runs very slowly and almost all websites will return the following error message: "The requested URL could not be retrieved" - I had to try half a day before I could finally get to the mozilla support page and refresh. That worked for a short time - but the next day, the same problem - so I refreshed again - worked for a short time, and then the same problem. Today - it didn't work at all - It took a half a day to get mozilla support to work again - but no other websites are currently accessible. My desktop uses Window 7

I have been using Firefox for years. Suddenly today I can no longer access Pay Pal via any site (Ebay, Vitacost, etc) to make online payments through PayPal. I loaded in Google Chrome and I CAN access Pay Pal so it appears to be a Firefox issue. The 'warn me when websites try to redirect' in UN-checked, so this is not the issue from what I can see. There seems to be some redirect issue. I tried going directly to www.paypal.com and received the same message (see below). Firefox is preventing a redirect to PayPal. Please advise and provide detailed steps to correcting this issue. Thanks. :-)

This is the message I am receiving: Internal Server Error The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@paypal.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error. More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

When I was checking out Plug-ins and updating them, I was not prepared for the Adobe DC with Cloud and the other things it has to offer. The Adobe XI that I had contained my PDF files. When my Vista OS fell apart, I lost quite a few things. The only thing I do not like is that you cannot get the older version of Adobe back on the desktop unless you are an IT person, which I am not. I know it has to be on the hard drive. I have tried to download it, but it comes up this an error stating that Adobe DC is the version I want. I have a Dell Windows 7 Professional Inspiron 3847 2013. I just wish I could have my Adobe XI.

For the last month or so any Youtube video I watch takes around a minute before it starts playing. I have cleared my cache and cookies numerous times. I actually formatted my computer and upgraded to windows 8.1 today and this problem still persists. I had adblock enabled but I tried to disable that and the problem remained. I have also tried both HTML5 and the Flash versions of Youtube and nothing worked.

Using any other browsers, Youtube videos being to play instantly.
