With increasing frequency, when I attempt to load a website -- well-established ones that I've had bookmarked for years -- I initially get one of two messages: either the site I'm about to go to is unsecure (http) or that the web address isn't recognized.

Yet, in the first case, when I go to the "unsecured" site anyway, it is in fact a secure (https) site.

And in the second case, if I hit the option to "try again", it connects instantly.

What's going on here? BTW, this happens whether I'm using a VPN or not. And sometimes it doesn't happen at all.

Thanks for any help.

Hi

I only have this problem on https://seb.se/ and it worked on my old computer with windows 10, it also works with Edge.

It seems Firefox does not recognize links on that site. Nothing can be clicked and the pointer does not change when hovering a link.

Firefox always uses excessive GPU memory when I watch video and livestream. about:memory shows that the explict GPU memory allocation is only about 200 MB but in the task manager the GPU memory usage is 1GB, and the latter doesn't decrease even if I close the tab. I suspect that this is a memory leak. I searched for Bugzilla and found a similar issue that has been existing for years: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1386177

I only have one window open of Firefox, but multiple tabs open in that window. The primary monitor properly displays that only one window is open, however the second monitor shows that there are multiple windows open. Although this COULD be a Windows issue, I haven't seen it with any other programs, which is why I'm reporting it here.

I suddenly began seeing weird, random text rendering problems in the browser. It looked like tiny bites had been taken out of random letters.

At first I thought my external monitor developed bad pixels, but I discovered that the problem only occurred on Firefox (109.0.1): No other browser (Chrome, Edge, Brave, Opera) showed the issue. Also, the problem only showed on my external monitors: it disappeared when I moved the browser window to my laptop screen.

I first noticed it only on letter "t" in the google search bar: I tested every other letter and none showed the same problem. In a continuous line of repeating "t" letters, the corruption occurred in a repeating pattern, only corrupting letters in position 7, 9, 16, 18, 20. But then I noticed elsewhere on the page I a random letter "a' was sometimes affected.

My NVIDIA studio driver needed updating (to 528.24), so I did that and the problem seems to have resolved. Very strange.
