Hi,
I've a few issues to discuss with you here. One, the browser Firefox is not opening couple of sites but showing only blank page. Second, I have this problem (image attached) while accessing a few subpages of a website. Please help me understand and solve these two problems.
Regards,
Rashid

Oh, there's another problem. Even on this page all elements don't download completely, as shown in the image attached.

Try the bottom answer here for the 1st post (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/962913). Or here (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/951421). Are you using FF 20??

If you are, that maybe the cause according to the 2nd link

Gonzales, I am using Firefox 19! I've followed the instructions: (1) Check "No Proxy" (which has increased the speed of browsing significantly though!), and (2) Uncheck "Use TLS 1.0", to no avail! And you didn't explain the problem I mentioned in the 2nd post, some elements missing.

Use Google Chrome!

But Google Chrome uses too much system resources and slows it down. Gonzales, do you think I won't face other problems if I update browser to 24? I am using Windows XP SP3.

I actually have this problem with Internet Explorer as well. There I tried to open wordpress.com site and it showed blank page only. Wonder what's wrong with my system, network, or browser. I know this is a very petty issue and none would be interested but right now I am just curious to know why this is happening to me. :confused:

I have Malwarebytes as the only antivirus to protect my system. Do you think it might be due to this?

Well malwarebytes isn't really an AV program. Is it registered?? If it is, disable its real time scanning. See if it makes a diff

This has become a serious issue for me, Gonzales. I hope you understand. I don't see Google Ads on all sites and some most popular websites like wordpress.com doesn't open and only blank page appears. I have uninstalled Malwarebytes under the impression that it might have blocked a few things to download for security reason. Yes, I had registered version. But it didn't work either. Now I have no antivirus although I have decided to install avast!. Please do some research for me and explain why: (1) Some sites which previously opened easily cannot be downloaded and instead only blank page appears. (2) On all sites (even yours), no ads (Google or otherwise) are shown. I remember that couple of days ago while surfing the net I downloaded and installed this program mindlessly. [https://www.somevisits.com/answer=6566.aspx] Do you think this software caused all this problem?

Oh, I forgot to tell you that I have updated my browser to latest version (24) on your suggestion. And I also Reset Firefox. But the problem persists. Net speed is okay, but some sites are giving problems. I have following Plug-ins installed. Maybe it will help you understand this issue.

Windows Presentation Foundation
Windows Media Player Plug-in Dynamic Link Library
Shockwave Flash
QuickTime Plug-in
Microsoft DRM (DRM Netscape Network Object)
Microsoft DRM (DRM Store Netscape Plugin)
Adobe Acrobat

Uninstall firefox, delete its folders then reinstall it. See if that fixes it
