Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
Do not click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.
Re: when i to facebook it now turns the address bar red and says this website does not supply identity information
I have this problem too, intermittently; not only with facebook, but also on earthlink, a site I've been going to for years. When it happens on facebook I refresh & it disappears & the lock returns. When I tried refreshing w/earthlink it didn't.
So I looked at the info page & mozilla said I don't have passwords saved for that site but I DO!! And it had just used them to allow me to sign in!
I haven't installed any new extensions in quite a while & only have a few (some of which it seems mozilla auto installed cuz I didn't).
I'm guessing since I use red cats theme it has something to do with it. BUT, I've used this theme since v. 3.something and never ever had this issue before.
Before posting this, I disabled red cats theme and the red has disappeared. However, the reason the red appeared still exists & at at least one part of the mozilla page info is STILL wrong (that I don't have passwords for the site).
So I signed out of earthlink email & the lock appeared. I sign into earthlink every day & have never encountered the red address bar or lack of lock until today. When I signed back in, the lock disappeared. How can the info state there are passwords saved before I sign in and not saved after?
Apparently the lack of lock has to do w/the lack of owner info. "This website does not supply ownership information."
And, when I'm signed into the email it's only partially encrypted, but when I'm signed in to earthlink's home page but not my email it's totally encrypted.
Would appreciate a 'computer for dummies type explanation.' ;-)
