sec_error_ca_cert_invalid error on all pages

Hello,

I am running FF 29.0.1 and going to ANY page gives me the same error, over and over again.


Tijdstempel: 21-5-2014 01:13:13 Error: localhost:26143 uses an invalid security certificate.

the certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed

(Errorcode: sec_error_ca_cert_invalid)


As for an example, when I go to google.com, this error will showup a couple of thousand times in the FF errorconsole. When I press 1 letter in the google search bar, the error shows up 37 times...

As I am using the error console allot for site debugging, I really have to get ride of these errors that flush away the important ones. My system is running a Apache server, for local developing purposes. However, I have NOT set a certificate, nor am I using port localhost:261432 (or SSL for that matter). CMD->Netstat tells me that programID "4" is listening to that port, which is the "System" (NT Kernel & System). But I assume "System" functions as an internal proxy, so what program really listens to that port, is unclear to me... I have not been able to find any rootkits on my PC and I am not using any proxies. Also, I have not seen any screen asking me to "trust" the certificate, nor have I been able to actually find the un-trusted certificate in FF........ Left of the address bar, FF shows me the correct certificate of the site, in green and does not tell me that it is invalid...

The weird part of this all; the error stops showing up when I enable private mode!

Any help is welcome!

Firefox 29.0.01 Windows 8.1

There doesn't appear to be an easy way to reset the default search engine to be used in searches in the address bar. Am I missing something?

And also, why can Yahoo hijack this function, making itself the default search engine?

I just upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7. I reinstalled firefox, added the speeddial that I liked so much, and then tried to use firefox. I can't type the web address into the address bar when I start firefox. I always have to open a new tab before it'll let me do it. Also, I can't highlight and copy what's typed there - AND I can't "paste and go" anymore. Is that open gone?

When I first open Firefox, it opens to Google, which is my preferred homepage. I have set Google as my preferred search engine on the Firefox toolbar. However, whenever I open a tab in the existing window, it opens to the unwanted Bing. How do I set Firefox so that new tabs opened in the existing window open to Google. I am not tech savvy, so I would appreciate it if any answer takes that into account. Thanks.

In Version 29 of FireFox the "folder" or "link" icons of the bookmark toolbar are stuck VISIBLE.

I simply wish to hide/delete the icon, showing only the text as I had before. The icons are basically meaningless and I don't need them to be visible.

Please suggest the correct path for adjusting this.

Thx.

I have used Expedia many times in the past without difficulty. Recently, however, whenever I try to search for flights on Expedia, I get a message that says "Sorry, we're having a problem on our end. Please try your search again later". But I'm able to search without problem from other computers. I've cleared my cache, cookies, and browsing history. I'm using the most recent version of Firefox. I had let some people borrow my laptop recently to check gmail accounts, but I've logged them out of everything. Any suggestions?

I have not changed any settings I have done a Firefox Reset (as things were running slowly) I have checked the settings in Tabs, and found nothing related to this.

thanks very much.

When trying to access a website, getting message: "The certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided." I have been able to access the site without any problems until yesterday. There is no option allowing me to continue to the page, so I attempted to add an exception manually. However, when I try to do this on my "certificates" tab, I get a message telling me that this website already has a valid certificate. What's the problem? I am able to access the site on other computers, it is only on my laptop that this problem appears....

Every time I try using Firefox to stream Netflix, it usually gets stuck on the loading screen (the one with the red rolling circle with the percentage complete in the middle) and it takes 10+ minutes to load it completely. It works on Google Chrome but I don't want to use it because FF is the best browser for me. I have hardware acceleration disabled.
