I just downloaded firefox about a week ago and the first day i used it i went on to tumblr, and i logged in just fine. But now a week later i'm trying to log into my tumblr and it says it's loading but then it goes straight back to the log in page. I contacted tumblr support and they said to check if i have cookies, and i do. i'm very dissappointed that firefox won't work with tumblr.

On EVERY website i go to I get pop up ads or a new smaller page pops up and says "about blank" in the address field. They make the websites look different like they have to make room for ads. Also sometimes there is a hidden link that when I click on something it takes my to a whole other website.

Hi, since a couple of days ago, I am having trouble opening a select few webites and get the message that they have timed out. They are popular ones, ebay.ca, BBC, and chapters.ca. I also cannot view the itunes store in itunes, although I am still able to update podcasts. The only thing I did recently to the computer was uninstall norton, and install Microsoft security essentials. I have xp and firefox 3.6.3 I've searched for solutions and have cleared cache, cookies, updated java, ran norton removal tool, removed cookie file, tried no proxy, tried auto-detect proxy...and I am stumped. I don't know what else to try. Any ideas?

It's not always yimg.com, sometime it says the certificate is only valid for google.com when i browse FB or some other https sites !

The problem does not happen to all https sites !

This is for anyone who has had issues loading Facebook, eBay, twitter or any other site which shows plain text pushed to the left hand-side of the screen and fails to load images.

This issue had me stumped for about 3 hours. No matter what I did. No matter what I disabled. The problem remained. I cleared my cache, reset cookies, disabled addons, reset Firefox to default settings and kicked my pc a few times for good measure.

The problem was fairly simple and at my end, this is not a problem with firefox. SSL certification for facebook was being deemed invalid and therefore the site failed to load properly. Now because Firefox doesn't deal with SSL certificate failures, there had to be something else going on in another program. I then realised that Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 was the problem. If a website failed SSL certification for any reason Kaspersky Blocks access to the site which was causing the page to not load properly. You have to disable Kaspersky's SSL certifcation checks to be able to run the websites properly. You need to load your Kaspersky main menu and click Settings once there go to the tab that looks like a cardboard box (Object Detection Settings and Exclusion Rules) then when you can see a list of different options select Network and you should see Monitored Ports and Encrypted Connections Scan, disabled the encrypted connections then reload Firefox and try the webpage that wouldn't load. To know that kaspersky is the problem, you will get a dialogue saying you have to add facebook as an exception since it failed SSL Certification and this was the culprit for me atleast.

I looked at the mozilla support forums and it seemed to me, many people were getting this issue and some issues went completely unresolved and there was no mention about Kaspersky, so I hope this helps.bold text

When I visit some websites, I see just a white screen with nothing on it - No text, no images, no spot nothing - just white.

Please note that I have tried the following things and none has worked for me.

1) I have reset Firefox - But no changes. 2) I have started Firefox with add-ons disabled - But no changes. 3) I have cleared the cookies for the websites - But no changes.

Even a few days back, everything was ok. But don't know what happens now. My Antivirus Kaspersky could not solve the problem. I have also used Malwarebytes ( Free Version ) to scan my computer. No malware was found.

Please help. What to do ?

I use Tumblr all the time and a few weeks ago, I started having trouble loading it further than the first page and the images I clicked on wouldn't enlarge. I switched to Chrome but it lagged heaps of me in the last few days so I decided to switch to Firefox. It's been going great all day but now it's started having the same problems again. :/

I also had problems with Facebook where the icon on the tab wouldn't show up and I couldn't click on photos and it wouldn't load further than the first page. Facebook is currently working fine.

The image/gif problem is only on Tumblr (as far as I saw), but it's as if the images weren't even there. (the way I see it, it only happens when I'm browsing through someone's tumblr, but when I enter a tag every picture showes, and on my dashboard as well). when I press reload, it reloads the entire site without the pictures. I tried a link on internet explorer and google chrome: it showed the pictures on IE, but not on GC. At first I thought it was because I didn't update firefox, but it showed up even after I updated everything (including adds-on). I also cleared my cookies and cache, and tried other things but nothing worked. Embedded videos won't show up anywhere.

Lately, when I log on to my yahoo mail while using firefox, it no longer shows the DELETE option at the top of the email page. So, I cannot delete any emails that I might wish to delete. Also, I cannot get past the first page of my emails. Every time I click on the NEXT PAGE button, it does not move from page 1. This does not happen when I log onto yahoo mail using Internet Explorer. Please advise as to what I can do to correct this. Could it be that I'm not using the latest version of Firefox? I don't know...
