Why is Firefox unable to connect to Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides?

Firefox was having a hard time connecting to Google docs, sheets, and slides, saying "Connecting" or "Reconnecting." Then whenever a connection was established it was very slow, it couldn't keep up with everyone else on the doc, and the connection would drop constantly.

Now I've resolved this by going to

Options > Advanced > Network > (Connection) Settings... > No Proxy

This has fixed the issue for now but it's unclear how effective it's going to be with other users on the doc because I haven't had sufficient time to test it all out yet.

I made this post to help others find this solution because there's nothing online that directly relates to solving this problem with Firefox.

I hope it helps.

Opening a new tab (Top Sites) begins downloading a file from an old site. The solution: remove the source web site from Top Sites.

Every time I'd open a new tab, my download manager would pop open asking to save an mp3 file. The mp3 file was from a web site that would automatically start playing the music anytime you went to it's home page. <insert long story of chasing numerous ways of clearing cache files and stored settings that didn't work> Yes, a new profile (devoid of any important saved information) worked. But that wasn't a solution, just an avoidance. ... The solution: My new tabs were configured to show my top sites. By sheer luck I happened to notice the source web site of this mp3 file being displayed within my top sites. Clicking the X to remove that site solved the issue.

Can't close single pop-up window virus?

I ran into an issue with a pop-up window that didn't want to close, and a simple google search provided the answer of abandon all open tabs and start from scratch... That's not particularly an idea I fancy!

I actually discovered a very simple solution, but I can't post it anywhere because all of the posts are archived!

The malicious pop-up was opening another window, to supposedly enter access credentials. This was keeping me from being able to close the window, and when I closed this alternate window, it would pop right back before I could do anything else. A light bulb forms!

I disabled my computers wireless connection, via the network and internet settings, and the pop-up was no longer able to restore the access credentials window. Close the malicious pop-up, and restore internet connection!

I would like to share this work-around with others that may have a similar issue, but can't find any open posts about it. Can a Mod help me out with this task?

I installed addons (e.g. adblock lite, ad killer) and when I shutdown Windows and start it again, the addons disappeared in Firefox. I'm using Firefox 40.0.3 non of addons will stay. I restored Firefox to its original state, installed everything again, also did the Malware scan as suggested on a post and the problem stays. So every time I start Firefox, have to install the add ons which is a bit hectic.


Please help me with some solution.
