Firefox works okay but I notice it slow down an lag. When I go on Pandora an play music it'll work fine but once I start opening other tabs it will start lagging the music. This doesn't happen on Internet Explorer. If I play a video YouTube in HD I sometimes have to let it load all the way up or it'll start lagging. I have none of these issues on Internet Explorer. What can I do to fix this?

I just had to do a fresh install on my laptop after my hard drive fried. I reinstalled Firefox, and apparently it gave me a new version. I am an online student, and I need Java to run my school's website. However, when trying to find the appropriate tick box in the Options/Content menu, it is not there. I need Java to be on at all times, not just for one site. I also do not see anything about a red plugin icon on these websites; I don't see a plugin icon anywhere. I need this fixed ASAP, so I would appreciate a quick response. I cannot get homework done without it.

Unable to connect to proxy due to automatic https

Hi there,

I am the network administrator for an Australian K-12 school. We are cross platform, and support both Mac & Windows environments, based of an Active Directory Infrastructure.

We have local proxy server based on ISA 2006, using McAfee SmartFilter as the local filtering solution.

The issue I am having has been occuring since Firefox 12 was released. A number of websites retrieved through firefox started using the HTTPS connection by default, for example google.com, youtube.com, twitter.com, or carrying out a search using the search bar.

For example - If i search cat in the search bar, Firefox will automatically refer the search through this url - https://www.google.com.au/search?q=cat&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-GB:official&client=firefox-a&channel=fflb.

With the majority of our Mac computers running Firefox 14 or later, this search is hampered and returns the message Proxy is refusing connection. To overcome this, I have trained staff and students to remove the 's' from http:// and to reattempt the connection. If it isn't a blocked term, ie porn, the proxy will ask for login details, and connect through.

In the case of a blocked website, such as YouTube, the same fix is applied to bring up the block page, which can allow the override. Further more, once the filtering is turn off. The issue doesn't rear again, until the filter cuts back in.

This also occurs, but less often with our Windows based computers running Firefox, as they support NTLM authentication straight through.

What makes it most curious, is that Safari versions 5 & 6, the current and many releases of Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer 7, 8 & 9 work flawlessly.

I'm looking for an option or a fix that will allow us to set a preference the HTTP over HTTPS for these website so that Firefox can at least work straight out, prior to the release of this feature, or adjust so that if the connection is refused/unable to connect by the proxy at, it will try by HTTP before failing to connect.

If there is anything else I can try, please let me know.

Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing conections-- why does this happen suddenly in the middle of a session?

Using a Dell Inspiron laptop, Windows 8 64-bit, have made no changes or downloaded new programs yet in the middle of a session, as I went from one site to the next, this message appeared. I finally figured out how to get to "tools" then "network settings" and check "no proxy", but will this fix the problem? It happened before and I performed a system recovery, which also worked, but it was a huge hassle.

I just received an attached file in an email (in Yahoo Mail) from a friend, and when I clicked on it to download it to my "Computer" (which was the only option other than Dropbox, which I don't have) it was scanned and downloaded. But the question is "Where?" It didn't appear in the Downloads section of Documents, nor in the Downloads section with Favorites and Desktop. I used the Search tool to search everywhere for the file name, but came up empty in all searches. Where on earth do attached files in emails go when you download them? I have Windows 8 by the way--I never had this problem in Windows XP, where downloaded attachments went to My Documents.

The reason I asking in Mozilla instead of Microsoft is that when I did a Google search about this problem, a Yahoo Mail Help website said this is a problem of the browser and I should ask there. So I'm asking.

I was able to access this website prior to 2 weeks ago. I can access this website on other computers without issues, and I can also access all other websites on this computer.

The following is what is listed in the navigation bar when I get the error message.

http://iphantom.com/wisd/restricted.html?fn=Default&FP=l&ip=10.201.5157&ibip=66.206.97.9&ldu=l&re=0&bu=wps.prenhall.com

I noticed it says wisd/restricted, but I can log on to this website using my wisd computer without issue, and I get the same error message at my home/other locations. So I know that it is not restricted. I have used all the other suggestions "no proxy", shut down firewalls, but nothing has worked.

Any help with this matter will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Cody

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?
