I have had on and off problems with Firefox working, but up until now, restarting the computer solved the problem. Now it won't load any website for anything...it keeps circulating with "Connecting...". Internet Explorer works just fine and the internet is working with all other devices, the only thing I can find that may be impacting is that the internet has no IPv6 access (I have no clue though and the box is checked). I have tried all of the advice I have found on other similar posts such as disabling the IPv6 and the Prefetch through 'about:config', I restarted the computer multiple times, unplugged the router, checked the firewall and removed and re-added Firefox, cleared the cookies and cache, reinstalled Firefox, uninstalled Chrome.

Nothing seems to be getting me any closer to having Firefox up and connecting again.

As a side note, I only have been having those on and off problems, and this current problem, while connected to my home internet--other connections have had no problems. Also, I am using Norton Antivirus which is up to date and showing no problems at present.

Any ideas on how to fix?

A little while ago whilst I never used firefox and used chrome instead, I edited a setting in which it limits my bandwidth and I'm pretty sure I limited it to something ridiculous like 50 kbps (As I was swapping households between my parents and one had faster internet than the other.) I can't remember how to get to that and would like assistance in accessing that setting.

Our streaming audio service has been using Adobe Flash Player since 2007. With the February 2015 release of Firefox 36 many of our customers (Windows and Mac) are seeing our Flash player hang indefinitely at "Trying connection on port 1935". In somecases reinstalling Adobe Flash Player will fix this; in other cases reinstalling Firefox will fix this; in several cases only allowing incoming connections on port 1935 (new firewall rule) will fix this.

What happened? A lot of our customers use Firefox and suddenly no joy.

Thank you!

We operate in a very restricted DNS environment and downloading sites with signed wildcard SSL is very slow so how do we disable all checks and keep HTTPS?

If we were using a self-signed certificate we could add an exception. But we use a DigiCert wildcard certificate. Our sites use a very restricted DNS with maybe a dozen URLs for which a name resolves to an IP. When Firefox is used to access our sites over HTTPS it is slow and often fails to load bu serving up error messages on the security of the site. I believe this is because it is looking to verify the certificate or revocation. We do not have this issue using HTTP. I have disabled "Query OCSP" but it has not helped.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Can one safely block 4.2.2.1, 4.2.2.2, &c . . . 8.8.8.8

I use Little Snitch which shows Firefox allowing connections to 8 IP addresses that, for not seeing a reason, I blocked in LS. Nevertheless, LS lets about 10% of those connections through, so I police and disconnect. On the net, I found that those IPs belong to Level3 Communications which has a bad rep among some. I contacted the Little Snitch people who advised that I was wrong & the real owner is google (not really an answer to why their program lets through even after I've blocked). But here's the thing -- I use google ONLY for e-mail; I don't want to place my computer at their disposal for anything else. SO, should I continue my blocking campaign, or let the eight IPs through. My concern is Privacy and Security.


Thanks,

After random periods of time while playing video (youtube, vimeo etc) network connection (not only ff) begins to work unstable. FF causes network freeze every 6 second that results in ping >1000 or lost packets. I already get this problem in before (for several years i tried to use FF in different versions of windows and different computers/notebooks). It's only problem caused Firefox, nothing else. System and network load don't reach 15% when i get freezes. FF safe mode with disabled addons don't resolve the problem. Any other browser/program works fine and not affects on network connection.

I installed Win 10 on my Toshiba laptop and when I launch Firefox it opens but then just hangs up. It does not go to my homepage. It has all my bookmarks but when I click on one, nothing happens. I ran it in safe mode, same thing happens. I uninstalled, downloaded fresh version (40.0.2) and it will not go beyond opening. Anyone else experience something like this?
