On a Win7 computer, Firefox 34.0.5 works fine for the administrator account. For the user account however, a new tab will not open when clicking on a link in a web page. The settings under options / tabs are all checked properly. I have uninstalled Firefox, removed all the files from the profile directory for the user, then reinstalled Firefox - got the same result. I even uninstalled Flash player per https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1032376 - still, a new tab will not open when clicking on a link in a web page. Have tried safe mode and restoring defaults without any luck. I suspect the answer is simple (Occam's razor) - just can't seem to find it though.

Help Please! An Adware Tab Keeps Popping Up Randomly On Firefox, And I Can't Stop It!

Hello, I am new here. I have been using Firefox on my Windows laptop for a while now, but now, I have an adware tab that keeps popping up randomly! This is the tab that keeps popping up: cl.1ck.me/dl/shuffle.php I've tried everything, from refreshing Firefox, installing add-ons to block pop-ups, blocking the site with BlockSite (add-on to block websites), and still it is popping up! By default, whenever the rather assertive tab opens itself, I get a message saying that Firefox prevented the page from redirecting. When I allowed it to show, it would show me some obviously malicious ad, saying something like "Windows Media Player is out of date! Click to update now!" (it was different ads each time, but all of them wanted me to download a program). Now whenever I allow it to show, I get redirected to http://www.adtrackone.eu/go.php?a_aid=55415c29d7266 and Firefox gives me a message that says that the website is a reported attack site, and advises me not to continue. When I do proceed to the site, I don't even get an advertisement anymore; a pop-up from Firefox appears, asking if I'd like to save "Setup__11652_il641438.exe" Of course, I have not saved the executable, as it is obviously malware, and I've gotten some pretty bad viruses on my laptop before (Security.Hijack was one of them. What a nasty thing that was! There was also Storm Watch, Desktop Temperature Monitor, et cetera, I'm getting off topic.) And even when my computer is off, this bugger still finds a way to open itself! I usually find about 5 or 6 of these tabs open every morning, each one with the message "Firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page." It used to just keep opening itself one at a time, but now it's opening itself in pairs. For example, it's already happened three times while I've been typing this; I'll be typing, then the tab will pop up twice in a row! I'm sorry that this message is so long, but I really need help! This is actually the first time I've made a forum post for help...I searched for cl.1ck.me/dl/shuffle.php online, and the only result I could find was a page in Polish where someone had it set as their home page and couldn't get rid of it. Unfortunately, there were no solutions to that problem. Again, I'm sorry for the dreadfully long message but I REALLY need help! Refreshing Firefox, uninstalling my add-ons and themes, deleting suspicious-looking files in my Firefox data folder, scanning my computer for viruses with MalwareBytes - all of these have done NOTHING to help the issue! Here are some screenshots, if they'll help. Please, ANY help at all will be appreciated! If you need any more information, ask! Screenshots (had to use an image hoster because it wasn't working when I tried to add them for some reason): http://s28.postimg.org/5kv62lwvh/Screenshot_1482.png http://s28.postimg.org/hlgm3c4a5/Screenshot_1483.png http://s28.postimg.org/6pp87zjcd/Screenshot_1484.png http://s28.postimg.org/u2n9qhzfx/Screenshot_1485.png

Every day around 9:30 PM, browsing the web becomes impossible. nearly every site I visit brings up a This Connection Is Untrusted page. I have tried using different browsers and Different Devices. Even my 3DS doesn't work. This has lead me to believe that the problem is either with the modem or my service provider. I checked the certificate of Google via chrome://pippki/content/exceptionDialog.xul, and it read ISSUED TO Common Name (CN) security.frontier.com Organization (O) security.frontier.com and when I checked it now, it reads ISSUED TO Common Name (CN) www.google.com Organization (O) Google Inc I don't know what fixes this problem since the problem stops at different times. It started around when I installed AVG, so I tried uninstalling it, but the problem didn't stop. While I'm fairly certain the problem isn't related to Firefox, this is one of the sites that I am able to visit when this problem occurs. I have tried manually adding the exception so I could bypass the Untrusted Connection page, but the page never loads and the next time it happens, the page is there again anyway.

Hi. This is my first question here and a weird one too. So please bear with me.

My company has many individual servers, all running the same Java program with same environment. We have a download button to download some data. However, the download link "DOES NOT POINT DIRECTLY TO THE FILE LOCATION". Instead we take the request, process it, write the data to a file in server, then read that file to the requesting browser.

In ONE of our servers, after our firefox upgraded, we are experiencing the issue that the download is not happening anymore for versions >=39. Previous versions are able to download the file correctly. Same behavior is seen in IE-11.

What's more confusing is that other servers are behaving normally even with firefox 39 and beyond. Only with this one server I am getting this issue.

Based on FF39 changelogs, can this bug-fix have some role to play in the observed behavior ? "Fix incomplete downloads being marked as complete by detecting broken HTTP1.1 transfers"

Attached are 3 images: Image 1: When download clicked, received the popup immediately though expecting some delay because of data processing. This possibly indicates that FF39 is not receiving any data from the server.

Image 2: When FF39 is not able to download the file it gives the warning shown.

Image 3: Trying to re-download the file using download manager downloads the underlying XHTML file instead which is EXPECTED BEHAVIOR because download is not a direct link to the file as mentioned before.

PS: I understand I am not giving enough information because I don't know how to reproduce this issue. Any pointer in some direction is appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Okay. Firefox quit loading web pages. Even saved ones. Chrome is fine on this workstation anf FF works just as blazing on my laptops and phone. I've done e-v-e-r-y single thing I could find on the web including reset, manually removing profiles, crawling the registry, installing and going after identified folders, clean reinstall, (clean except that all plug ins still show in the 'fresh' install while my add-ons (ABP, Ghostery, Scrapbook) are absent:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can#firefox:winxp:fx35 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/956139 http://www.ghacks.net/2013/01/31/firefox-is-slow-try-these-fixes/

Also tried this reset via safe mode and apparently I only get a single chance to choose between Safe Mode and Reset Firefox because after getting the choices pop up as indicated the first time (I chose safe mode), I now am no longer 'allowed' to have the choice or enter safe mode! http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_Mode

Kind of "ARRGHHHHHH!" inducing..... NOTHING works. It is worse than dial up. I tried speedetest.net: It just pinged for ever. I've run PFPort Checker app (portforward.com) and it reports "Your port is not open or reachable!" even though Chrome and Thunderbird work. (tho Thunderbird is exhibiting it's own bug lately: The "You don't have enough space! Continue" and "You don't have admin privileges" scenario. Though, despite reading on the fixes, I've not bothered and just click "get mail" after that message window pops up.)

So yeah: Mozilla is REALLY banging me hard lately but I really need FF running in order to have my laptop synched and ready for work out in areas where I don't have web access... Anyone want to try something I've not already tried, multiple times, from those links? I dare ya's!

I have been getting the following error message on various websites, including Google, Deviantart and others:

Network Protocol Error

Firefox has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired.

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because an error in the network protocol was detected.

   Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem.

Refreshing the page makes the page load properly, but the error keeps occuring.

I'm using Firefox version 65.0, which seems to be up to date. I have tried reinstalling Firefox and creating a new profile, but the problem persists. My Windows version is 8.1. I am currently using the following add-ons: McAfee WebAdvisor version 7.0.0.17912 uBlock Origin version 1.18.4

Possibly related: some sites are not displaying image thumbnails on first load, or are displaying them incorrectly; e.g., Youtube will sometimes display the thumbnails from a previous search on a new search.

Any help will be apprectiated, thanks in advance.

I'm new to firefox, but something is wrong. Whenever trying to connect to ANY website it takes forever or "Connecting..." and after it finally connects to the page it loads very slow. That is if it doesn't get stuck on connecting forever.

I have tried new profiles, resetting firefox, erasing all history cache cookies etc, and disabling anti-virus. All of my hardwarae usage is low. This includes cpu&core, ram (pagefile disabled), hard disk highest active time, gpu, everything. I tried disabling hardware acceleration. No add-ons. No extensions. I tried disabling all 3 plugins. no services.

I have 300mbit/s internet hard wire with no data loss.

It also never closes. No matter if I press the menu button then the power button. It runs in the background and the only way to stop it from running is to end the task in task manager.

When I log into Yahoo mail on Firefox 40.0.3 (on Windows 7) on my company-supplied laptop, I get this message: "You have asked Firefox to connect securely to us-mg5.mail.yahoo.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure."

I cannot create an exception: "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."

The "technical details" section states: "us-mg5.mail.yahoo.com 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)"

This does not happen at home, so the company laptop has something to do with it, but, even on the company laptop I do not have this problem when using Chrome, so it's not that the company does not allow access to outside mail.

On Firefox, the problem is intermittent. Sometimes, there is no problem and everything works fine. Clearing history/cookies/cache and restarting does not fix the problem. It sometimes goes away on its own for a little while, but then returns.

I have searched every database I could for answers, but have found no solution yet. The computer clock is correct, I'm not using Avast, etc. (some of the other situations I've run across).

I hope that I can get this resolved, because I'd rather keep using FF, which I've used for years, than switch to Chrome.

Thanks for your help, in advance.

Hi all,

We are having some problems with custom profile locations on windows 7

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -Profile "U:\Firefox\Profile"

We use the above command to launch firefox. The u drive is a drive that is ALWAYS available for all users. This drive is redirected to the home folder of the user. To sync these folders we use Offline files.

During our testing fase we had no problems at all with this method. But in the last week we receive more and more people complaining that firefox hangs. (Read: no error specific error just stops responding and windows asks to close firefox) In my troubleshooting quest i found that as long as i don't use internet ( so not using our proxy server squid) it all works. But from the moment i try using for example google, firefox stops responding.

The tricky part is that sometimes it happens after 5 minutes, couple of hours, few days. Once it happened after 5 minutes, the only way to solve it is to delete the profile folder on the U Drive and start over.

So any help on identifying this problem is welcome. If more info is needed let me know what you need.

Hallo, my company's network as been recently upgraded with the Zscaler proxy solution. I was able to regain internet access by following that thread Firefox: This connection is untrusted + Behind corporate firewall (https://superuser.com/questions/115349/firefox-this-connection-is-untrusted-behind-corporate-firewall) . Unfortunately that dind't worked out for Firefox Sync. I'm able to log-in (verified by getting a mail from Firefox Accounts) but Firefox isn't stil able to sycn. I suspect that is somehow related to the certification signing process/getting token8gaining access what is properly blocked by zscaler:

Code:

Before FF 29 it seems it was possible to solve that issue see here: http://www.discourse.net/2010/12/how-to-solve-the-dreaded-firefox-sync-error-while-signing-in-problem/#comment-1358006

Asking IT to allow Firefox Sync/adding an exception is not an option. I'm glad that FF runs instead using the outdated IE 9. I'm fully aware of IT policies etc, that hasn't been a problem for some years.
