When I click anywhere on any web page I happen to have up, another tab will open up. It's not another window, just another tab in the same window. It never loads all the way and it remains just a blank white page. The title thing in the tab spot just says "loading". The URL always has something to do with click tracker in it. This is the most recent one that popped up: http://123srv.com/ads-clicktrack/click/newjump1.do?affiliate=63801&subid=1049789&terms=how%20to%20remove%20pop%20up%20blocker%20shelleyirishdance.com%20shelley%20school%20of%20irish%20dance%20utah%20kristina&ai=k7r7ZxYUPfD2QHmxafUC3FKj_Zpi6ZZyCafgoE4aT5BmsVftS--JZbE7nx_ue8pgiV8REg8qtd4nlCcP_TsuYxqvCPXUr7EEp6T4FLomBS9gE6vTW4h3dLhOG67xkTp42m9H4NkVGLAwLpSGNwMGtsOLZiu-tOhMwKvlVq1khSfnAo4OJ4T6K-l9MiMf6M4VJznqciRN2QAsnn7GuCcMM1IF4g7Nb0a0o_wZtbVVzyEmVq7ekBlN2gq77LjOU6YpOoyGwo7fObZt71K-hNxRzE37g1IBVcXdZZuUZCx3xT0MmZ2DdJwXRWRVDkaqnoziyxf-QxvHoeru19uOKD_7USXpExraoTb0vChyRc1jvxiBLUOXnV2DBGNcIRNtZp4pRYvkO3aJqoZ4lEL7tqTjvSx2oZEhYIsj&version=1.1 It doesn't pop up every time I click on something, but it happens quite frequently and it's really annoying. I also have an ad tab that pops up on the right side of every page I open. It has an options setting to have it never appear on that site again, but I don't want to do that to every single site I go to. There is also an ad search thing that will appear within the text of the page, it's called Mega Search or something. It has a close button but it doesn't go away completely. Ad Blocker Plus is activated and they still show up. The pop-up blocker is activated and they still show up. Is there any way to get rid of this?

Firefox has had a slowdown on youtube starting today. I can even click on the videos the stuttering is so bad. It just kinda hangs. Also, it seems to deselect/reselt the firefox window quickly over and over again with something else open. Embedded videos seem to crash when i play them. However, chrome has no problem at all.

Not: I Did a "Reset" and that did not help at all. Still a problem.

Also, just tried liveleak. It seems as though it is a problem with flash itself.

Severe slowness in loading web pages with Firefox 26

Hi to all!

I installed the latest version of Firefox and my browsing started being very slow and a lot of error connections and loading troubles occured. I have already tried the "Restart with Add-ons Disabled" mode and also the "Troubleshooting information" resetting Firefox to its default setting. I had this issue when I updated FF to its latest version 26.0 . With the previous version I had no troubles, and I could solve the few ones I had. I unistalled it and tried to install a new fresh copy but it didn't help. I tried also the Firefox 27.0b2 version and I had the same problem.

When I sign-in my Gmail account, the page loads very slowly and the message "Some Gmail features have failed to load due to an internet connectivity problem" appears.

I can't surf the net on Google because the search takes a lot of time and for all the time the sign in the tab "Connecting..." still remains until the page doesn't load the search, I have to reload the current page to return to Google and try again.

YouTube is very slow and videos don't start at the play button.

I have this severe slowness only with Google, YouTube and also with the addons.mozilla.org site . All other sites load with no problems like webmail pages and others.

I have FF 26 installed on my laptop and using the same connection at my home, I have no problems. It only occurs on my desktop.

More details: I always use the private browsing mode and the only extensions I use are "Adblock Plus 2.4", "Adblock Plus Pop-up Addon", "Anti-Porn Pro" and "FireShot". I modified some about:config setting my I had never had any problems with all the previous versions.

I hope saying all about my problem and you could tell me how to solve it.

EDIT: More info about my FF setting and my system information of my desktop are in the "Question details" -> "More system details" where I posted the "Troubleshooting information" (It's in italian language, but it's very easy to understand).

I restored a system point before the installation of the latest version of FF coming back to the 25.0.1 previous version and like expected I have no troubles. But the problem still remain because I can't use this version for all the time, I'll have to update FF sooner or later.

I need help settling a professional debate that I am having at work regarding browser security. A colleague of mine is making the case that open source is less secure than closed source software. He says that Firefox is a good example of this and says that Internet Explorer is more stable, reliable and secure.

Although articles and opinions can be found supporting either side, he says that high quality/unbiased sources often credit IE as being better and uses these two as examples:

I thought, rather than looking up my own information, why not go to this support forum and get some feedback from a different point of view.

Why am I always getting this error when I refresh my facebook page using Firefox "This content is no longer available"

I don't understand why I always get this error message that says "This content is no longer available" with the following information: "The content you requested cannot be displayed right now. It may be temporarily unavailable, the link you clicked on may have expired, or you may not have permission to view this page."

This only happens when I open or refresh facebook or mafiawars in Firefox or Waterfox, The other browsers on my computer have not had this problem which leads me to believe that it's Firefox.

Please inform me of how to correct this annoying message.

Thank you
