My kid's Elementary School has a website that is not completely viewed when I use Firefox, but it is completely viewed when I use Internet Explorer or Chrome. The website in question is http://nes.chccs.k12.nc.us/

The middle column in the website is not viewable correctly with Firefox (a lot of information is actually missing, making Firefox useless). It works fine with IE or Chrome. This is confirmed by the school IT person, who then later added the disclaimer at the top of the website: For best and most complete viewing of this website, please use Google Chrome browser. It would be better to try a way to fix the problem in Firefox....Thanks for any help on this.

I am using an oldish desktop PC with Windows XP, I have been having trouble with Kaspersky anti-virus software, and one step in their efforts to help me was to refresh/update Firefox. Since doing this, 3 problems have appeared: firstly some web pages now appear as a long list of blue links, bearing no resemblence to how they usually appear; secondly many websites now just show the message "Secure connection failed" (this message also appears on other websites which do function correctly), and thirdly my Flightradar24.com has now stopped working correctly (when I click on an individual plane, instead of its details appearing, an error message appears which reads "there was a problem fetching your data"). My problems with Kaspersky are ongoing and as yet unresolved, but it appears that the problems I describe in this message are to do with Firefox. Please can anyone advise how I obtain help to resolve these issues? Thank you.

Videos stuck on "Loading ad"

Firefox does not play online videos that are "powered by JW Player 7.11.1". They get stuck on a "Loading ad" screen that goes on forever. Examples: http://www.spiegel.de/… (read more)

Firefox does not play online videos that are "powered by JW Player 7.11.1". They get stuck on a "Loading ad" screen that goes on forever. Examples: http://www.spiegel.de/video/donald-trump-ist-in-saudi-arabien-gelandet-video-1768050.html http://www.sueddeutsche.de/politik/russland-affaere-ueberschattet-trumps-erste-auslandsreise-1.3514809 Happens in Firefox, including in Safe Mode and with all plugins deactivated. Doesn't happen in IE. No adblocker installed. And yes, I am in Germany, so the content should be accessible to me. All other web video content that is not "powered by JW Player 7.11.1" (BBC, CNN, ABC, YouTube, ...) works fine. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you!

When I use Firefox I have 2 or more windows open. When I open an external link it opens in the most recent window. Is there any way to change the behavior so that all tabs open in my "Main" window?

Bonus points if links in "non-main" windows open into the main window as well.

I posted this merely to get some attention on this issue. Why can't Ubuntu, Mozilla, and Adobe get their respective acts together and solve this?

So-called experts telling everyone to stop trying to view Flash videos is NOT helpful. Many websites are still building them. Also, what about older videos that retain value to view? Mozilla telling everyone that they no longer support Flash plugin and have a replacement in latest Firefox is NOT helpful, since Ubuntu makes it impossible to install it because of their proprietary extensions. Adobe providing an up-to-date Linux version of the plugin is NOT helpful, since Mozilla has blocked them in all Firefox's that come with Ubuntu releases. Ubuntu seemingly ignoring the issue is NOT helpful. So, what's a user to do, go back to Windows?

I will post this everyplace that I can find on the Web until something is done!!

I can connect to Yahoo and all other websites but I get a message that say the following when trying to connect to Yahoo mail :

"The page isn’t redirecting properly. Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies. "

This only happens with the Mozilla browser and just started yesterday.   I have cookies turned on.

I initially moved to the ESR release in February due to issues with my corporate PC running Trend Micro Officescan which crashed the regular release firefox at that time. I received an update to the latest ESR release 52.2 this week which appears to cause the same issue. I have had to roll back to 45.7 which was my last working version. Any other experiences or insight? Am I stuck on this version as long as my PC is running Officescan?

My saved usernames and passwords used to autofill. This stopped all of a sudden and the box to save logins is unchecked and won't allow me to check it. Also, I had checked the box for the history to delete when Foxfire closes but now the box is unchecked and won't let me check it.

tech support scam

Do I have a virus or worm? I was using FirefoxESR 52.2.0; had not yet installed the 6/29 update to 52.2.1. I got a large red pop-up window with this text:

"Authentication Required" "http://13-555x00000z4-virus.com is requesting your username and password. The site says: "FIREFOX_CRITICAL_ERROR_0xKB5454800_CALL_HELP_DESK: +1(855)*** (Toll-Free)" and boxes to enter my User Name and Password

I could not close this window with the usual upper-right X, and the rest of my Firefox browser window was dead, could not close it, either. Finally killed Firefox with Task Manager; Ctrl-Alt-Delete. I restarted Firefox but all my previous open windows were there, including the big red window, which still kept me from doing anything until being killed with Task Manager again.

I restarted Firefox with all add-ons disabled, downloaded and installed update 52.2.1, and so far I have only opened this Form Support window.

I thought I was using AVG Free, but I can't find that now; nor is an Internet Exporer link available to try those.

Comments, please!

Oh, attached is my screen grab of the red window, and also attempts to start up my AVG again. I did not attempt to run the suggested "avguix.exe" for fear it would now do something 'bad.'
