When I am browsing any webpage, if a link is clicked, it just automatically redirects to Yahoo DNS server error page. Also, if I am on any webpage without clikcing on any link, after 5 to7 seconds, it redirects itself to Yahoo DNS server error page. This is constantly happening even after I reinstalled, rebooted etc.

I am trying to save pdf files from a database but firefox keeps on saving them as html files instead, even when saving it shows it saving as *.pdf. I have only just fixed the problem of not being able to open the pdf files and now using adobe reader add on but now can't save the files I have opened. I need to be able to access these documents when not online. Instead of studying for the last 3 hours I have been trying to solve issues since downloading the lastest version of firefox. This was never an issue with the older version.

Running Firefox 31.0 on OpenSuSE 13.1 x64 with KDE 4.11 desktop. Videos embedded in Facebook posts will not play. Clicking on them results in moving arrows as though the vid is loading, then the video display area turns into a black box. Moving the cursor over the black box and right-clicking brings up the usual Flash player 3-item menu. The same video that is linked in the FB page will open and play perfectly at the YouTube site. This happens even after clearing the cache, disabling plug-ins and starting in safe mode. Videos also play perfectly using Chrome and Konquerer

I have the latest firefox. I have the latest adobe. I use AVG. It is set to allow adobe. I have been through all the hoops your repair site suggested. I am now using Chrome as my main browser. Same PC, same user, same security, same adobe --- no crashes! Firefox has a problem. I am soooooo upset that since I have reported this to firefox all I get are suggestions that something is wrong on my end. If you google this right now, you will see that I am not alone, and that it has been going on for a while. Why don't you think you have a problem? You guys remind me of a certain mayor in Toronto!

Yesterday my Firefox was opening files just fine, but today I can't open PDFs. It isn't the usual PDF issue I've heard described either. Every time I click on a PDF to open it, Firefox opens tons of blank tabs ( 20 to 30) and I have to shut down the application, or in some cases the entire computer, to make it stop. Eventually, I will get an error message saying the file can't be opened, but not before tons of new tabs have popped up. I'm only clicking it once, yet I get 25 tabs! I've already removed & reinstalled Firefox and it didn't help. How can I fix this?

After upgrading to firefox 31.0 on ubuntu 12.04 access to an internal website broke. with the message : SSL peer selected a cipher suite disallowed for the selected protocol version. (Error code: ssl_error_cipher_disallowed_for_version)

Note that firefox 30.0 on ubuntu 12.04 still works (tested on another machine) against the website . running cipherscan against the server revealed : prio ciphersuite protocols pfs_keysize 1 ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA SSLv3 ECDH,P-256,256bits 2 DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA SSLv3 DH,1024bits ... Disabling security.ssl3.ecdhe_rsa_aes_256_sha (setint it to false) in about:config renabled access.

So it appear to me ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA is broken in 31.0 on ubuntu . Anyone else have the same problem?

on www.westportnow.com, there are images that display as part of an ad network. Problem is, FF is not changing the images even when the images no longer exists. I looked in about:cache, and found this information about one problem image: http://cdn.westportnow.com/adv/images/WCPNora1.gif 52062 bytes 1 2014-08-02 17:36:28 2014-08-05 08:07:59 showing that this image expires on August 5.

How do I change this so images that no longer exist go away? I guess what I'm trying to figure out is how to clear cached images -- which is easily done in Chrome, but I can't find out how to do it in FF. Is there a way to set FF to not cache images at all?

Ok, since update to version 31.0, I have been having some problems. I have tried doing everything stated in the support page about resetting, reinstalling, safe mode, restarting pc etc. First problem, when I open Firefox no web page loads. It just says New Tab and a blank white page. If I press the home button I am taken to my homepage which is google.

Second problem, when I right click on a link and the menu pops up, if I click open in new window, a new window opens but it just says New Tab with a blank page and no URL information, just blank.

Third problem, the Open Menu button just doesn't work at all. You can click all you like, that thing is not opening.

I am really stuck as to what to do. I have only been using Firefox for about a month and t was good until these problems. If I can't resolve it, I will have to use another browser as it is really annoying.

I am using Windows 8.1 by the way and have scanned my computer thouroughly for both virus's and malware.
