Everywhere I click the cursor appears like I am going to write something. Idk if I did something or something changed but it is kinda annoying. I may not have noticed it doing this before for a long time but today I have been. It appear wherever I click at the start of a line. I have not changed a thing on my Firefox settings for the longest of time. The only thing I had to do recently was reset how I wanted it to search for updates and it even went back to it's setting I had it on before.

So is this a part of Firefox that is just now catching my attention or did something change?

Firefox only solution seems to be to disable the warning and wait 45 seconds for it to be acknowledged. that isn't a solution! Fix the DAMN PROBLEM ALREADY, from what I see in the forums, it's been going on for about a year without any solution!

Update: Problem being looked at in this thread too http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=2669927

Looks like it is related to a recent Windows update(the Platform Update of Feb 26) and ATI Radeon 3000/4000 GFX

As stated in question, I've recently started getting the message "SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG" when attempting to access various website intermittently. Sometimes reloading the page fixes it. Sometimes it doesn't. Error is only occurring in Firefox, not other browsers.

I keep getting this message on Firefox: Unable to connect

        ' Firefox can't establish a connection to the server www.examplewebsite.com
            
         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.'

my other browsers (IE and Chrome) work fine. I want to use firefox as this has some useful add-ons which are not available on the other browsers.

I've checked my firewall and deleted firefox from the list of programs allowed and then added it again but this did not work. I've disabled by firewall, but firefox is still unable to connect. I've uninstalled and re-installed firefox but this also did not work. I've reset firefox to default settings and this did not work. I've also clicked the 'no proxy' in tools/options/ etc but this did not work.

Please could someone help!

For a few weeks now, when I am browsing the internet all of a sudden a new tab will open, and it is either something from "wartune" which I have NEVER played, or the one where it tells you your current firefox is outdated.

I have ran a malwarebytes and AVG scan on my computer and the problem still persists. I have went into my add-ons to see if I saw anything suspicious in there and even went through my programs and uninstalled anything I think should not be there, with the problem still there and beginning to become very annoying!

Can anyone help please?

I've just got a new 64-bit laptop with Windows 8. Websites using Flash keep crashing on Firefox, but work fine on Chrome and IE10.

I tried the suggestions in Hot Topics here 'Flash 11.3 doesn't load video in Firefox' and here 'Flash 11.3 crashes', by downgrading to Flash 10.3, but it didn't help, probably because they're about Windows 7.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

Firefox v 31 and Windows 7.

Since Friday early, I got this: "Something happened on our end. Please refresh your browser or close it and sign in again." ... After I signed in again, I got this error: "We can't connect to Outlook.com right now. Please try again later."

What's new with outlook.com occurred overnight (Thursday). There is a now a Messaging section in the lower left portion of Home page, which slowly loads with icons of people (with names) that I know. I just checked the five icons in that section. I know two of the five names - and I'm not remotely interested in messaging any of them.

The reason I'm here is that outlook.com is accessible on IE.

Is this a Firefox/outlook conflict?

Can I remove this awful feature?

There is no information about downed servers, and as usual, no solutions for this very specific message at Microsoft.

Thank you.

I updated Firefox to the latest version 7 rev 25. I've lost my menu, can't see anything but black and a few icons. cannot see bookmarks, menus, etc. I've had to switch to an alternate browser, which works fine.

I think you are going to lose many users over this problem. It is aggravating to say the least. Please help.

Two days ago I started getting the "server not found" error, off and on, daily. It is happening on both my desktop iMac 10.7, and my Windows 7 laptop. I keep having to hit the "Try Again" butting, and sometimes, several times, before a web site will finally launch. The only two extensions I have on both, are the Adblock Plus and the Last Tab Close Button, both of which, have been installed on said computers for months and months and months.

I went in and changed a setting to the "auto detect proxy setting", hoping that would work, and it did not.

I have Firefox version 21 on both computers, and it seems the problem started shortly after this latest Firefox update, and at the SAME TIME on both computers.

I do not have virus protection on my iMac, nor on my Windows 7 laptop, at the moment, but I have run online software to check for anything, and no issues, so I believe, it is not that which is the issue.

The firewalls on both computers are working fine and no issues there either, I have not changed any firewall settings, on either computer. It couldn't be the firewall, in my opinion, because this annoying error message started happening on BOTH of my computers, at the same time; I work on my iMac in the morning, then switch to my laptop in the afternoon, and same issue continues on both, and started at the same time, on both.

Is there something broken in Firefox from this last update of the browser?

Does anyone have any suggestions as to why both computers are having this issue, at the same time?

I have not tried using I.E. yet on my laptop, I rarely have ever needed to use that browser, and I hate it, so I don't use it.

Any help or suggestions, would be appreciated.

I have tried to reset Firefox, ran Malawarebytes and Super Anti Spyware, ran Norton, and even tried by downloading TDSKILLER. Nothing is picking up this virus or getting rid of it. When I rest Firefox, it appears to go away; however. my PC runs slow. I did not get the toolbar or any adverse effect running IE though. Should I uninstall Firefox or will this make it just find another home in my laptop? Please help!

Each morning after I boot my computer up, FF is extremely slow to open. Sometimes it will take 2 to 3 minutes (if I have the patients to wait that long) before the default page loads. In addition FF seems very sluggish to open new pages. If I terminate FF and restart, FF works very quickly...and continues to work very well the rest of the day, till the next time I turn my computer back on. I run Win7 ultimate, i5 quad core, with 8gigs memory. Is there a setting, like the cache or something that I need to keep for FF to work well from the first attempt to load it.
