Any clue what got corrupted in FF to allow this to happen? Windows 10, Firefox 53.0.3

Firefox 55.0.3 slow connection with 'Performing TLS Handshake'

Been having this problem over the last couple of months with Firefox 55.0.3 (64-bit) running on a Windows 10 Pro. It has been so bad that I've often waited for up to 5 minutes while the 'Performing TLS handshake with .......' message displays. Yesterday I installed Chrome. Attempted to connect to a music forum using Firefox that I've had the TLS problem with and as usual got the message. Immediately started Chrome and attempted to connect with the same forum. No problem. Read a couple of comments, replied to one and logged out. Meanwhile, Firefox was still waiting with the TLS message..... A few seconds after I had completed the exercise using Chrome, Firefox decided to connect me..... I have previously tried all the solutions suggested such as emptying the cache, going to No Proxy, turning off IPv6 etc. but nothing has worked in Firefox. On another machine on the same home network, running Firefox 52.3.0 (64-bit) on the esr channel I don't seem to have the same problem, at least not as frequently..... I'll add that I am running both Avast Anti-virus and Malwarebytes. Turning off these had no effect on the Firefox TLS problem. Both were running when I successfully connected using Chrome. I am reluctant to discard Firefox as previously I have found it to be fast and reliable, but something has happened the last few months to dent my confidence.... Just tried it again today to the same site on the Firefox 55.0.3 machine, and it took 85 seconds to connect to the forum page with Firefox. With Chrome, the connection was almost instantaneous..................

Until this week I easily handled my cookie preferences by NOT checking the "except cookies from sites" option. I then made exceptions to this default with the exceptions tab or through a cookie manager add-on. Since the last recent Firefox update, this no longer works. Nothing in cookie exceptions does anything. In addition to not letting me allow cookies, it will also not let me block cookies when I do check the "except cookies from sites" option. The Cookie Exceptions Do Nothing. I will appreciate any real help.

I've recently installed Malwarebytes, and each time I click on the Addon NetVideoHunter in Firefox it blocks an outgoing connection. Here's the report I get -

Blocked Website Details- Malicious Website: 1 Blocked,

-Website Data- Domain: www.adnetworkperformance. com IP Address: 130.211.186.109 Port: [50051] Type: Outbound File: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe


UnHackNe identifies NetVideoHunter as Malicious, so I've uninstalled it, performed a reset of FireFox and installed Flash Video Downloader. Unfortunately, that also seems to want to connect to a site whenever I click on it! Here's the report for that -

-Blocked Website Details- Malicious Website: 1 Blocked,

-Website Data- Domain: speednetwork6.adk2x. com IP Address: 130.211.54.133 Port: [51719] Type: Outbound File: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe


UnHackMe also reports that Flash Video Downloader is a malicious app, so I've uninstalled that as well.

I'm now using Flash and Video Download. That doesn't seem to want to connect to another website each time I use it, although UnHackMe seems to think that might be dodgy as well! lol.

I'm fairly certain that the report for Flash and Video Download is a false positive. However, as NetVideoHunter and Flash Video Downloader are trying to connect to another site each time they are used, that suggests that all is not well.

I only ever install Addons from the Mozzilla repository, so I'm a bit surprised that I'm getting these reports of malware. If an addon is trying to connect to adnetworkperformance. com, then it doesn't look like a false positive to me.

I'd welcome some advice on this. :)

When firefox asked if I wanted to update to the newest version, I answered NO! I had already discovered on my other computer that if I allowed the update, I would lose my ability to restore the previous session, so I wanted to save the tabs so I could reload them. I also lost all of the saved passwords on my other computer and didn't want the same thing to happen on my work computer. But despite answering NO. Firefox updated anyway, and I have lost days of work. How do I get it back? Jack

There are several hundred browser websites that are opened after reboot with Mozilla Firefox reload.

How did this happen with a reload?

Is this a cache or cookie problem?

What was changed in the January Mozilla Firefox update?

Ccleaner requires that the browser is closed to clear cache and cookies.

If this were done the several hundred webpages would no longer reopen.

How can the Mozilla Firefox browser be modified so that it no longer displays Access Denied without losing the reload option for the hundreds of websites that are currently open?

(The browser typically has the default settings)


The Google Chrome and Internet Explorer browsers can open these websites without problems. Other end users opening the same websites with Mozilla Firefox did not see Access Denied.


For this problem please indicate:

What specifically happened with the January update that may have caused this problem? If it was not the January update what else could have caused this problem? How can the problem be fixed so that the webpages that are currently open can easily be reopened after a reboot with reload? What could have been done to prevent this Access denied problem?

Firefox automatically updated itself and installed "Firefox Quantum" 60.0.2 I see - 64 bit - on Windows 10 on a Dell laptop.

Never had this problem before - but when loading Ebay pages, the main body of the advert page fails to load and the full message I get instead is below - I've tried switching the proxy settings to "No proxy" or "Use system settings" and sometimes page loads correctly once but then it fails again! Have cleared cache/cookies, have refreshed, have restarted ...

Very frustrating and this is about to lead me to give up finally on Firefox and move to Chrome.

"Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to vi.vipr.ebaydesc.com. SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length. Error code: SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

I can be actively browsing or be afk, it doesn't matter it seems, but sometimes tab would just crash. Can be active tab or some other, I'm kinda lost. I suspect it's hardware acceleration related, but I would like to fix the issue rather than turn it off.

I would love to find a reason and a fix for that. Using latest nvidia drivers and latest firefox.

How can I fix this so others on FireFox can view these embedded pages? I didn't know it couldn't be displayed until tonight and I have been looking for a fix since I was told. Some may see a solid white box and others see a grey box with a plugin is needed to view this content. However, if I view the pages I created on the server they work fine in FireFox. Just not when embedded into another web site. I'm stumped...
