Thread: Firefox Problem

  1. #1

    Default Firefox Problem

    I'm having a problem with firefox. Certain sites view just fine in Konquerer but not in Firefox. Im using KDE 4.5.0, Firefox 3.6.8-1.3. OPenSuse 11.2. Can anyone tell me how to fix this?. Here is two screenshots as an example one Firefox and one Konquerer of the same site.




    any help is appreciated

    Thanks,
    Dwight

    I am not sure this can help, but lets try it. Follow one step at one time and see it can help.
    1- Clear FF cache and check whether this resolve the issue.
    2- Does FF some time show 'page cannot load' message. If so, you can try to disable IPv6. Type this in FF address bar about:config, hit enter and now search for network.dns.disableIPv6 and set its value to True. May be this is not to the point, but in case FF cannot load certain pages.
    3- What if you refresh the pages, does it load again like that?

    Good luck!

    Clearing the cache does not resolve the issue. I never get the 'page cannot load' message. I have always had ipv6 disabled in firefox and in yast. When i did clear the cache tho and hit refresh i got this but i couldn't click anything but cancel, I can view the certificate tho.



    Maybe the certificates have something to do with the problem?

    Hi Caf, did what you suggested and updated all packages, but still the same thing. ive been googling the problem it seems there is the same thing on firefox for windows but it has to do with the date and time being wrong. my date and time is correct.

    when i delete my .mozilla folder and restart firefox i get this:



    I click on i understand the risks. I get this:



    I click confirm security exception...page loads like this:



    After that i don't get that warning again pages just load html only and no graphics. But so far it only seems to be Novell/opensuse sites that are doing it.

    thanks,
