Mozilla Firefox stops responding more often than not. Also I canno login to there forums: When I try to register the page does not change, or I get a message which is false since I know it is an email address I use:

How many extensions do you have? Have you tried running Firefox in its Safe Mode? Incompatible extensions can cause problems. What other changes have you made to Firefox since this problem?

Did you try running Firefox in its Safe Mode? The next thing would be to uninstall the Metaproducts Download Express and see if that helps.

Also firefox will not bring up the login page (Internet Explorer does): https://login.yahoo.com/config/login_verify2?.src=geo&.intl=us&.done=http://geocities.yahoo.com/














Server not found













Firefox can't find the server at login.yahoo.com.








* Check the address for typing errors such as
ww.example.com instead of
www.example.com

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

I haven't changed anything and now I can't get to https://www.nbnz.co.nz/online/onlinebanking/secure/asp/login.asp either. So back to IE!

Have you actually tried any of the advice I have given?

Just checking: in Tools->Options->Advanced->Encryption, you have both SSL and TLS checked?

SSL test brings up same page:

Server not found








Firefox can't find the server at weblogin.bu.edu.





* Check the address for typing errors such as
ww.example.com instead of
www.example.com (http://www.example.com)
* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.
* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

I've uninstalled Firefox:

I had to use Firefox for some non HTTPS pages and IE for HTTPS pages. Now I can use IE for all.
