Why do web pages only load when I move my mouse around the browser?

As soon as I try to load a site the browser does not load anything at all until I start moving my mouse around. I tried updating flash and using different settings and preferences but to no avail.

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the add-ons is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).

  • Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.

Ok, Just found firefox on dads laptop to be doing this as well, and it seemed to be the system time/date wrong.

This caused the addon update checking thing to find that all ssl certificates were expired (the year was set to 1970) I'm not sure how that affected anything, but after setting the time/date correctly everything started working fine again.

Hope this helps someone else
