This started yesterday. I've deleted my only plugin Flash Player, run CCleaner and downloaded Flash player again. I've deleted Java, run CCleaner and loaded Java again. I've run FF in safe mode and disabled hardware acceleration but no difference . At this point I'm not able to view any websites with FF other than this one and my Google search Home page. I'm back to using Internet Explorer and not happy with it after being spoiled with FF for so many years.

Would appreciate any words of wisdom to create this issue.

Odd. The error does not show what script.

Use this link to check that your plugins are up-to-date. If any are listed as unknown or research, do not worry about them.


Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac=Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh).

Is the problem still there?


Start your Computer in safe mode with networking. Then start Firefox. Try Safe websites. Is the problem still there?

Firefox in Safe Mode, no difference. Unchecked Safe Mode on Flash Player and deleted Ad Blocker - two suggested fixes on inquiries matching my issue. No difference. Will check out FireFox after starting computer in safe mode and let you know results.

Started computer in safe mode and opened two of the web sites that have given me trouble. Everything working great with no problems. Now how do I determine what the issue is so I can be problem free when not in safe mode?

As a test, disable your protection programs. What are you using?

Trend Micro Maximum Security with a monthly scan by Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - same as I've done for several years.

Some help sites, including Mozilla, scans your system and displays help for that system.

Thanks again for the assist. Shutting down the night but not giving up yet as I really do prefer to use Firefox over IE.

Followed instructions this morning regarding clearing cache and cookies before checking three of my most used websites. So far everything appears to be back to normal. I had used CCleaner numerous times times when the issues first began to happen which I thought also cleared cookies and cache? So no idea what actually worked but very pleased it seems to be good now.

Truly appreciate all of the help. Wouldn't be happy without my Firefox!
