When I turn on the Windows 10 desktop computer first thing in the morning, or whenever I turn it on after it's been off, it takes several minutes to connect with Google, Yahoo, Bing. This has been happening for about three weeks. I've deleted History and cleared the cache but it doesn't prevent the same thing from happening. What else should I do?

Each morning, when I first cold boot my computer, the moment I open my Firefox browser, I receive numerous (10+) identical error messages from Bitdefender:

Suspicious connection blocked: Feature: Online Threat Prevention

firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an unmatching security certificate to content-signature-2.cdn.mozilla.net. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since the used certificate was issued for a different web address than the targeted one.

Question: Is this ACTUALLY coming from Firefox? If so, please match your security certificates! If that's impossible due to a technical issue, then please email me your confirmation so that I can add an exception to Bitdefender.

Question: If it's not coming from Firefox, please email me, letting me know what additional system information you require so that we can get to the bottom of who/what is masquerading as Firefox while attempting to establish an unauthorized Internet connection from my computer.

HP Envy laptop, Windows 10 OS, latest update.

This has been occurring for several months.

Thank you for your time.

Hello,

I am having issues with error messages when browsing with Firefox.

This error PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR and this error SSL_ERROR_RX_UNEXPECTED_APPLICATION_DATA I don't get these errors when using Chrome or Microsoft Edge.

When I reload the current page, the page loads properly.

I've tried these tips so far: refreshing Firefox, setting to "no proxy" on network settings, turning off Avast, uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, checking manual proxy on my PC, restart my computer, refreshing Firefox, checking the clock on my PC.

Is there anything else I can do to fix this?

Thank you for assistance.

Fairly regularly I go to the Quora.com site to answer questions others have asked. Perhaps in one in four times I launch Firefox browser and go to this site it will not respond beyond the first page and eventually report that something on the page is slowing the browser. If this does not happen, everything works normally and very quickly.

The only way I can continue is to close the browser completely and relaunch. Even if I wait a minute or so, when I relaunch it tells me Firefox is already running and asks if I wish to close it. If I let it close the browser, the new launch normally works perfectly.

When the problem occurs, opening other tabs and closing the original one does not seem to make a difference. It still does not work properly.

I am not sure when this started, and I have only experienced this problem on this one site. When I have tried using the Chrome browser I have not seen this happening on this site. I don't like the Chrome browser but have it installed to allow streaming my screen to a Chromecast dongle.

The Firefox browser in the Windows 64-bit version 92.0.

This start happening a few weeks ago (it is now mid September 2021). I am not sure whether something has changed in Firefox or in the Quora site. I have seen this problem on both my Windows 8.1 Pro and Windows 10 Pro PCs.

Hello,

This has been going on for few months and it doesn't seem to be going away (in fact, I see more complaints about similar issue around the net), so here it goes.

Up until Firefox 87 with Widevine 4.10.1582.2 I had no problems with Netflix. Then Firefox 88 with Widevine 4.10.2209.1 was released and every time I watch an episode of a show the screen freezes for several seconds while sound goes on. If you rewind and reach that point again, it doesn't happen again. However it's inredibly annoying when it happens at the climax of every episode.

I stopped updating Firefox beyond 87, but then Widevine 4.10.1582.2 stopped being supported and had to update or not being able to watch Netflix at all. While I can still watch movies, I had to start using Edge to watch tv shows (and I really don't want to do that).

I haven't noticed it happening on a movie, possibly because the last few minutes are credits which I don't watch. But there's a possibility it only happens on episodes. This is only my suspicion, but it happens right after the episode finishes buffering, so maybe it has something do with that or maybe some process with next episode is beginning while the current one is still being watched.

I'm not exactly sure it's something you can fix on your end since it seems to be involving Widevine, but would be great if something could be done.

I'm running version v92.0 (64) on ubuntu 21.04. Firefox would crash upon opening when signed in. It would stay active enough for me to disable the extensions & themes. After doing that it still crashed. I tried going into Troubleshooting mode and it would still crash. I went into Troubleshooting mode and did a refresh. It was still crashing. Finally I signed out of my mozilla sync account and the browser has stayed active long enough for me to type this report.

I've submitted all crash reports in about:crashes, and I'm not really sure what to do next.

Perhaps a local version of the Mozilla Sync profile has been corrupted? if so, is there a way to remove it and pull down the "sync"ed version from Mozilla's servers? What if the version on Mozilla's server's has been corrupted? should I back up the local profile (wherever it is) before removing?

I hope I've given enough information. Please let me know if you need further, more specific information.

Hi. I have been a loyal Firefox user for as long as it's been around. Today it was unresponsive. I have tried everything and it still remains unresponsive.

I felt like I should reach out because I don't want to move to Chrome, but I had no choice, since I have never used another browser. I hate to and don't want to be lost customer, but nothing worked. Scans, reinstall, etc. Nothing worked. All other programs work fine.

I am not able to get Ebay Philippines to display correctly using Firefox. It works with Microsoft edge. I have the latest updates but to no avail. Today, when trying to reply to an email on the main Ebay site it also had the same problem. I also tried to log in to Lazada and that is also corrupted. Its getting to the point I will have to stop using Firefox. Any suggestions.

For the last 6 months, or more, Firefox is slow to launch and load content (until "X" icon becomes "refresh").

I've been working more diligently on this in the last few days. The first thing I did was to run full antivirus and malware scans. NOTHING was discovered. I then found some articles about the problem, the highlights of which presented 3 major points:

  • That a dense cache could be influential,
   >> I've always made it a point of clearing cache every week or 2 anyway. That
  • Add-ons could slow things down,
   >> I uninstalled mt LastPass and AdBlock Plus add-ons (the only 2 I've ever used). And finally, that
  • Security software often instigates scans on browser-related files when FF is launched.
   >> When I got started this morning, I reset my Malwarebytes Antimalware NOT to start with Windows.

I launched Firefox again after restarting the machine, and there was little improvement. It takes 45 to 60 seconds, now, from the FF icon click until the window comes up and the home page (Yahoo, for me) fully loads. Meaning that the 'stop loading "X" ' becomes the 'refresh "left-loop". That's down from 2 minutes a few days ago, but it still seems to me that that's still much longer than it should take.

Please be so kind as to share any thoughts you might have for speeding Firefox up for me.

Thank you!
