Firefox freezes entire system on first "complicated" web site visited

First, I use the word "complicated" because I think it is the first web site I visit that requires Flash, but I have not been able to prove that. I know it is not all web sites or simple web sites. I didn't want to offer bias in the question by claiming it is Flash, but that is my instinct.

Anyway, I have been working on this for about a month or so, The behavior is as follows. After a Windows reboot, I start Firefox, and after visiting a few websites, it freezes my entire system; no mouse, not ctrl+alt+del, nothing. Completely locked up. After about a minute or two, it unlocks, and I can use Firefox fine until after the next system reboot. Once I know a website is "complicated", ie, causes this problem, it will _always_ cause it if it is the first visited of the complicated class. However, after the initial freeze, I can visit any website, "complicated" or not, including the original one, fine.

So, say site A and site B cause this problem, but site C does not. I can visit site C and ones like it all I want, as soon as I hit A or B the first time, it freezes as above, then I can hit A B or C in any order all day fine after it unfreezes. Once I reboot, I am back to the same situation. It is 100% reproducible in this way.

What I have done/ what I have --

1) I have no extensions and I use the default theme 2) I have tried turning off graphics acceleration as suggested in another article 3) I have upgraded FF and Flash; FF version does not seem to matter 4) I have disabled every single plugin I have. I do note that the length of the freeze is much shorter when all plugins are disabled

None of the above have fixed the problem.

This started happening after I did a Windows update on Apr 7, 2016. I do Windows updates manually, but it is beyond my pay grade to uninstall each Window's update to attempt to find a causal relationship. It may be coincidence,

As I said, I suspect the problem sites require Flash, but I can't prove that. However, it is still a problem when Flash is disabled, as I said.

I run Windows 7 SP1 Home Premium fully updated, Malwarebytes premium AV, and FF 43.0.1. Since I have verified it is independent of FF version since at least 35, I have not checked for updates.

TIA for any help.

I have been advised to update Flashplayer. When I have attempted to do this through Ff, Ff has blocked the update. So I went to Adobe. It now appears that I have successfully installed update 20.0.0.267 directly from Adobe, today. It is listed in All Programs. Yet I am still getting a message that I need to install or update Flash. From two different sites.

What is going on?

When I bookmark all my tabs in a session using the CTRL+SHIFT+D hotkey, it automatically creates a folder of all the tabs. The folder that is automatically created with that hotkey, however, only displays the URL instead of the page title. It adds difficulty when choosing bookmarks, since only the URL is shown, and not the title of the webpage.

The computer is a Dell Latitude, I just upgraded it to Windows 10 and installed Firefox. Do I need to revert to Windows 7.1? How can I get my favorite Web browser back to usability?

I was given a laptop for Valentine's Day with Windows 8.1. Included was Kaspersky Internet Security as an additional gift .I also added MalwareBytes. I only use Mozilla Firefox and Yahoo on my laptop. Up until 2 days ago Firefox allowed Kaspersky to run Safe Money and 2 other programs which I still need. Why is Firefox blocking these programs & how can I get everything to run again as before? I tried running Safe Money in Kaspersky with Yahoo & Firefox still blocked it. I restarted my puter, ran Kaspersky & then MalwareBytes. Everything is ok according to both those programs. However these blocked programs still won't run. Help!!! Why is Firefox doing this???

I'm running firefox of a win 8.1 32 bit. the flash problem started showing since the very recent security update.

also annoying the the prompt for video - it hangs and does not respond. fortunately it does not hange the page and I can still browse thru the text. I don't mind refusing the storage and the video simply stop instead of the risk for slow running script

Hello, I'm having problems using Google (https://www.google.co.uk/). It comes up with a error message which says this: (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

Here is what it fully says:

This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to www.google.co.uk, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified. What Should I Do?

If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate.

^ Technical Details

www.google.co.uk uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. The server might not be sending the appropriate intermediate certificates. An additional root certificate may need to be imported. (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)


I have also added a picture / screenshot to help. Please could someone help as I need Google. Kind regards, William

Good Morning, I am trying to solve FireFox CA issues for the last two days. I am using BurpPro for work.

I generated new Burp CA Cert (cacert.der) file and imported it via Settings to the list of certificates. I can see the Burp cacert imported. NOTE: When importing I CAN'T SEE THE SCREEN ASKING FOR "this cert can trust websites, mail etc."

Now, when navigating to HTTPS website ie httpS://example.com I see message: "Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to example.com. Peer's certificate issuer has been marked as not trusted by the user. Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNTRUSTED_ISSUER" But going to http://example.com is OK (so this issue is only for httpS websites)

Why? [angry face] I was reading a lot of support topics over help here. The trick with removing cert8.db file don't help. I restored the FF to it's factory settings. Didn't help. I am after installing the FFDev edition (as a separate browser) and the same issue Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to example.com. Peer's certificate issuer has been marked as not trusted by the user. Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNTRUSTED_ISSUER occur!

The very same BurpCA Cert working on Chrome and IE. I asked the same question on BurpSupport - no answer... as yet.
