User Help for Mozilla Firefox
12 posts • Page 1 of 1
Ok, here's my problem - some sites I visit do not fully load in the browser window, though when I go and check the source of the page, it's all there, down to the ending </html> tag. Same problem happens with Mozilla. Specifically, I've seen this happen with download.com, it loads the page title and the favicon, but all I see is a blank white screen afterwards with the status bar saying "Transferring Data from surveys.cnet.com" Time doesn't help either, because it simply doesn't load even after ten minutes. I'm running a DSL connection and other sites work just fine. I've also disabled my firewall (McAfee) and removed the process from the task manager list. I've also disabled just about everything else, including spyware shields and Virus Scanners but to no effect.
I'm just wondering why the site loads into the browser (I can see the source fully by clicking on view source) but doesn't appear on the screen...
Just some more info on my computer, just in case:
Windows XP Pro, DSL Connection, Firefox 1.0.2 and Mozilla 1.7.5, Windows XP firewall disabled as well. Tried with three different ISP's (56k for two of them) and the problem persisted with each one.
Mozilla/5.0 (Ubuntu; X11; Linux i686; rv:9.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/9.0.1 ID:20111228084953
I haven't tried with IE yet as it is somewhat broken (one of the only reasons I'm using firefox). I'll try to get it fired up.
@AboyGuy - Yes, already tried that as well, uninstalled, reinstalled, made new profiles, and did all that. The problem still ocurred and has been for about two weeks now.
Download.com front page
MegaGames.com - front page loads, other pages do not (or load just the top part) (http://megagames.com/gcracks.html)
Gmail.com - logging in, but only for firefox.
I'm thinking that it has something to do with the ads, but I'm not running any ad-blockers or anything of that nature.
Checked with IE - It does the same thing, only it doesn't load all of the code like firefox does. Odd.
Also it does the same thing with my.yahoo.com at times, but reloading the page will let it work, unlike the other sites mentioned.
Yes I do, but turning it off does not help. I also tried turning off Java, images, referrer logging, and CSS.
Problem Solved - I uninstalled McAfee Privacy Service and the whole problem went away. I'm not sure why, but it worked and so it's all good.
Thanks for your all your help, RAF.
