I will add to printscreens in case they will help. The first printscreen is outlook.com with Internet Explorer. The second printscreen is outlook.com with firefox. I included text on each printscreen explaining the differences between each browser.

Following is apparently a firewall issue preventing Firefox (Fx) from loading any pages. It's not exactly Fx that is the culprit, but it sort of is, so I hope someone can solve it here.
I have one old machine that works amazingly on XP and - please try to continue to take me seriously - I run Fx 5.0b7. Thanks in advance for upgrading lectures but on this particular machine I want to continue as is, which loads and sufficiently processes 95% of webpages. AAR versions may very well have nothing to do with the following problem, so set that detail aside if you can.
The specific failure that I will describe is essentially 100% reproducible (how often does that happen!). I'll be whistling along with 15 different Fx windows but when I load this one particular page, my firewall gets excited and if I don't whitelist, Fx will not load or refresh any other pages. Can't even Control-N and get google.com (yet pings fine. Only Fx fails to load pages.). Further, when I close Fx, I get a "crash window":
D3D9Window: firefox.exe Application Error The instruction at "0x0d75609c" referenced memory at "0x00000014". The memory could not be "read". Click on OK to terminate the program.
(The first mem location varies, but it always gets 14 for the second mem location.)
The "guilty" page is from a residential utility site (my natural gas company): https://www.atmosenergy.com/accountcenter/urlfetch/viewPdf.html?printDoc=123456789012 Sorry, but for privacy I changed the 12 digit number at the end, so you will have to endure my description of what happens.
It _successfully_ loads a pdf page; the tab says viewPdf.html (application/pdf Object)
I then immediately get a progress window titled Adobe Updater that says "Checking for updates for Adobe Updater" It quickly fails (BTW I've now told my firewall to permanently refuse Adobe to connect to the web) and the text changes to "The update server is not responding, which means it might be offline at the moment, or the Internet or firewall settings may be incorrect. Please try again later."
Now as soon as I try to even refresh any other webpage, my Sygate Personal Firewall "SMC.exe" version 5.5 reports, to my great worry: "A new DLL has been loaded by Firefox. This could happen if you have updated it recently. Click Detail to see more information. Do you want to allow it to access the network?" (Yes and No buttons) It says: "The new DLLs have been loaded: C:\Program Files\ADOBE\Reader 9.0\Reader\AdobeUpdater.dll" I click NO, which I always do for suspicious/unsolicited requests from the firewall.
Now from this point forward, Fx can't even get Google. No pages can be refreshed. Restarting Fx fixes it, but as soon as I try again to load the culprit page, boom.
Note that every single problem described above does not occur over months and hundreds of other sites' page loads. It's 100% reproducible. So it's unlikely that this one's a "level one user error" though I confess to occasionally have that capacity :)
If I restart Fx with the cable modem unpowered, the problem page "loads" so to speak (with Server not found timeout), then I power the modem, 60 seconds later all other pages can be loaded/reloaded fine. If I now reload the atmosenergy page, with a live web connection, trouble. Loading that webpage, and connecting, is essentially disturbing my ability to use Fx.
BTW I have attempted to instruct Adobe to never check for updates, from within Adobe Reader, no help. I can't delete AdobeUpdater.dll *even when Fx is closed.* I would love to find a way to kill this mother ******* .DLL. Maybe restart XP in safe mode & DOS prompt?
Here I believe is the fundamental problem: the Firewall apparently is insisting that I "approve" of some DLL (that I don't even want on my machine) in Fx contacting the web. As a rule, I say "no" to the Firewall popups for everything that I can get away with, and live my life by whitelisting as little as tolerable. By saying No, the firewall refuses any further web connectivity by Fx. Am I simply mandated to say "yes" to this suspicious request? Even though adobe should be fine (unless spoofed), and the utility co. should be fine (unless hacked), I don't think I'm being overboard paranoid by not bending over to the request.
I just reinstalled Fx 5.0b7 so I doubt it's from anything I've done to Fx. It's been weeks since I modified addons, of which only 3 are enabled - NoScript, FlashGot and Facebook Disconnect. I never knowingly told Fx to "load a new DLL" despite the firewall report.
Finally, I can load a typical .pdf page, e.g. http://images10.newegg.com/User-Manual/User_Manual_76-206-019.pdf. It's just that atmosenergy page that fouls everything.
My objective is to be able to load the desired page, without updating Fx or Adobe or my OS :). And such that I do not answer a mysterious Firewall question with, "Sure, I'll permit some mysterious request to connect my box with the web."
I know this is a painfully long post. FWIW I worked for a very long time to balance paring it down for your benefit, while trying to preserve all seemingly useful details. I also spent hours testing results and attempting a myriad of variations to rule out false trails (e.g. numerous reboots which take a nontrivial amount of time). Not trying to be a princess or act heroic, but just letting you know that I took many measures to reduce the length of this post and minimize the waste of YOUR valuable time. Thank you for your patience and attention.

Over the past couple of weeks we've been noticing occasional long delays from clicking on a link and the link opening. We are a small office an run a variety of XP and Win7 machines with Firefox 52 & 53. It happens more often on some machines than others, the delay is also variable from about 15 seconds to about 120 seconds, again that delay seems consistent per machine.
I've been using our Intranet to try and isolate the problem, after clicking on a link the status bar at the bottom shows "waiting for intranet...." and that sits there until the page loads. The Intranet server is in the same subnet as the workstations.
I have tried the following :- 1) Changing DNS name for the server IP. I have also done an NSLOOKUP in a command shell in the background whilst waiting. 2) Disabled Proxy settings in the OS. Also set FF to be no proxy. 3) MS Internet Explorer appears to be OK. I can access the Intranet from the same PC whilst FF is waiting 4) Running FF in Safe Mode 5) Trying FF Portable 6) Disabled anti virus 7) Disabled FF Health Report, Block Dangerous Content, 8) Set geo.enabled = false
I've used a network sniffer and can see the initial GET is not sent until after the delay so it does not look like a network problem. There is quite a bit of FF traffic though, for example detectportal and self-repair at mozilla.com.
I'm really stumped, it seems the randomly FF is just sat twiddling its thumbs before contacting the target website.

I do not visit facebook. I have cookies turned off and history cleared in all the right places but I still get facebook cookies. I use CCleaner to clean them out after I exit firefox. I still get them again when I browse. I am using several cookie and blocking extensions. I have even tried explicitly blocking them, no joy. I have even wiped firefox and reloaded firefox with a clean copy on a brand new computer. Nothing seems to get rid of facebook cookies. What do I have to do to get facebook to stop or firefox to stop accepting them?
I also get this one: cdn.polyfill.io

Copied from unsolved issue, it's similar to mine problem:
I have this problem ever since i changed my GFX card (i now have a GTX 1060). At some point and completely randomly, firefox starts lagging. As if it runs at 10 fps. In fact, the whole PC looks like is lagging, if i press the start menu during this, it also lags. But if i minimize it or open the task manager (which makes it lose focus) and maximize-regain focus, it fixes itself until it lags again after a random amount of time. Usually, it starts lagging when i type something with my keyboard.
This only happens in Windows 7. In my Windows 10 setup (i have a dual boot system) the problem does not exist (so it's not hardware related). Also, during the lag the CPU is almost idle. Same with the GPU. Temps are low. RAM usage is below 500MB for firefox and less than 12% overall (i have 16GB). It doesn't look like something is slowing down the PC that is.
I also tried Firefox in safe mode and the problem is still there. So it's not any of the extensions i use (i only use a couple anyway). That's on the latest version as of now. But it had the same problem on the previous version.
Can someone help me with this? It's really annoying.

I use FireFox (FF) Ver. 53.0.3 (32 bit) on a Windows 7 Premium PC (additional details in attached image). I also use Tab Groups 1.0.2 and have used this arrangement for a very long time (FF updates excepted).
I also have a desktop CPU usage 'gadget'.
When FF introduced Tab Groups (Panorama if I recall) many years ago I began using it immediately. At that time I was able to open many tabs (20-30 before my RAM became overloaded (if I understand what was happening) and would then have to switch to the tabs screen, collapse the group in use, open a new blank tab, expand it and then close FF to allow the RAM to return to a normal level; at which time I could begin again (with the prior tabs in the reduced group being 'dead', don't know how else to describe it) opening to a new blank FF screen and begin again. This became 'normal' for me and was the situation up until the last 6-12 months and allowed me to collect several hundreds of tabs relatively efficiently. If I delayed this process and opened too many tabs FF would crash, but I was able to recover the prior work when FF restarted in most every event (I'll call this the 'process' hereafter). When FF discontinued 'Panorama' I switched to the Tab Groups program noted above and nothing changed.
Beginning about a year ago, I began noticing that I was unable to open as many tabs at one time as I had been used to before the demand slowed the computer and I had to go through the process described above. Because of this I began monitoring the Processes tab in my task manager and noticed that 'Memory (private working set)' for FF was running at ~ 1 X10^6 at the time FF would begin slowing seriously and I would need to repeat the process described above, but I was still able to have 15-20 tabs open at a time.
Recently, however, the number of tabs I'm able to have open is even lower (sometimes as low as 6 but usually 10-15) causing me to have to repeat the 'process' more & more frequently.
FF rarely crashes when I 'overload' the system now, but when the 'memory' usage gets >> 10^6 I find that when I close FF (using the 'X' at the upper right of the screen) FF doesn't actually close (see images of CPU meter & Task Mgr) and even though FF is not listed as a running process in the Task Mgr 'Applications' window, it is still running as seen in the 'Processes' window. When this happens, I use the 'End Process Tree' in the FF left click drop-down window, which closes FF.
After doing this, and the RAM winds down to a normal level (35-40% per my CPU monitor) I restart FF which usually starts & runs normally. Sometimes, however, it appears to start normally, but when I go to tabs view and then try to return to screen view, there's brief flicker (like a screen reset) and it stays in tabs view and will not go to screen view. I must again, go to the task mgr to shut FF down as above. FF will then usually run normally, but if the same thing happens again (twice in a row) and I restart FF It starts normally but opens the "Well, this is embarrassing…" window and I have to have FF reload the prior work.
I realize this is long & possibly confusing. I'll be happy to clarify what I can.
The 1st image is my computer specifications from CCleaner's pgae. The 2nd image is a composite of the issue showing, on the right, my CPU monitor with RAM at 79% useage. In the middle is the Task Mgr showing FF use at > 3 billion (whatevers), and on the lower left is an arrow showing my FF icon not highlighted (i.e.; FF is showing as 'off').
Can someone tell me what's going on here and how to get back to a more efficient way of working?

Recently The Mozilla Firefox ESR browser was upgraded to Version 52.0 and I faced "few critical issues after updating".
"Few existing functionality is not working which was working perfectly before the update."
But that "contain function" is working in previous Firefox ESR version.
So when I uninstalled the Mozilla Firefox ESR browser Version 52.0 and installed the Firefox ESR browser version 45.6.0. Here all my functionalities are working perfectly in Mozilla Firefox ESR browser Version 45.6.0.
Note: I am using jquery-1.7.2
I am not sure "Higher Version" than 52.0 of Mozilla Firefox ESR has also owned this same problem.
and also I am not sure, whether the "contains" is the only function which is not working but not aware of other functions.
Please let me know, 1. why am I facing this problem in the Mozilla Firefox ESR version 52.0? 2. what should I do to avoid this issue? 3. if possible, from which version to which version having this problem?
Kindly acknowledge to this.

I've tried the solutions (changing system proxy to no proxy, clearing cache).
Since updating from Version to 48 to Version 53.0.2 (yes, I skipped the versions in between), everything seems to work fine except for one website (the El Cohete Blog, http://5ftlatina.com/cohete/) which gives me the following error:

I am NOT an owner of this web site, just a browser. I can access it with no problem in Chrome. I lost access via Firefox when I upgraded from Version 48 to 53.0.2 last week. (I have checked it daily. No change in the message.)
Repeat: I can access all the other websites I visit regularly. I made NO changes to my system other than the upgrade to Firefox.

details are the same.... 53.0.3 just installed itself when I rebooted my machine. [I didn't want to update but I didn't get the choice...again] and now I need to convert a Word doc to pdf and Primo pretends to format the doc for about 1/2 second and then nothing.... the settings on Primo are fine and it was working before the restart. But I get no conversion or auto start to Acrobat Reader AND no new pdf... So incredibly frustrating - full workload today & no way to produce docs to send to clients....

I had a BSOD, asked at the microsoft forum, they looked at the crash dump and said FFox was probably the culprit.
then today FFox crashed twice.
haven't added any ad ons in quite awhile, but did install a java update today, but my BSOD was a few days ago
I use Win 7
is there any way to repair FFox,like in the add/remove section?
