Neither IE nor IEtab in firefox displays pages, firefox alone works

Q: Neither IE nor IEtab in firefox displays pages, firefox alone works

Please help!

Neither IE nor IEtab in firefox will display pages, but firefox alone works fine. I want to access a firefox incompatible site and get the following error:

The instruction at "0x1002d7db" referenced memory at "0x1002d7db". The memory could not be "read".

When I debug, I get a text file that begins as follows (whole file is too long):

Preferred Solution: Neither IE nor IEtab in firefox displays pages, firefox alone works

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Neither IE nor IEtab in firefox displays pages, firefox alone works

Um,thanks for that.Why isn`t IE working seems to be the question.

Try running some antispyware scans in safe mode.The official info here - http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic30213.html

Resetting web settings - Tools>Internet Options>Programs. Click: Reset Web
Settings - (uncheck box for homepage) - Click Yes.

Or reinstall IE - http://www.dougknox.com/xp/tips/xp_ie_reinstall.htm

For the past two days My Yahoo page which was beautifully displayed in my favorite colors, columns, etc. has been changed to a black and white sheet of typed paper look. Appearance controls at the top of the page no longer work. Mail page looks like a dot matrix computer print-out, B&W also.

Most web pages are now displayed stripped of their colors and beautiful layouts. Again, these look like a typed page, rather than an artful web page.

I used add/remove and uninstalled. Deleted everything I could find on Mozilla or Firefox and downloaded a new version of Firefox 3.5.2...nothing changed.

A:Firefox 3.5.2 displays web pages in black & white

It's possible your color setting just got changed.

If you go into Tools > Options, click on the 'Content' tab.
There is a Font and Colors section, with a button on the right that says Colors on it.

At the bottom it says:
'Allow pages to choose their own colors instead of my selections above.'
If that's not checked, check it, then your pages should go back to normal.

I have no problem accessing web pages with Firefox; it works very well without issues so far.

IE7 started giving sporadic problems with certain web pages about a week ago and it got progressively worse until it now displays "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" on all pages. Also, MalwareBytes displays "Update failed. Make sure you are connected to the internet . . ."

Windows firewall is turned off. We're running Norton Antivirus and I cannot find anything about how to temporarily disable it. I cannot figure out which version it is; but, I suspect 2007. We are not using any kind of "Internet Security", just Antivirus.

IE must work. Many of the sites we use for business will not work with Firefox.

A reinstalled my Win 7 64bit OS a month ago. Since then I've found some web pages do not display the contents of buttons and banners. This happens whether I'm using Firefox or Win IE. I've updated both browsers, updated Flash, and updated Adobe reader.
Tech support from each browser said, "It ain't us".
Here is what I mean:

I contacted the website for this page (an edX course) and they couldn't replicate it; said it was a browser or system problem.
I have experienced this problem on other websites, including the main gmail site.
I think I've screwed up a setting in Windows 7 when I was reinstalling it. Whatever I did or didn't do, is interfering with both browsers (and who knows what else). I've got no clue.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Thanks.

Hey guys. So all of a sudden my Google Chrome stopped working. I mean I was using it fine then five minutes later it kept giving "error 102 connection refused" instantly as if it wasn't even attempting to load anything. I can browse the web in Firefox but even then I can't do anything regarding secure sites. Also I'm completely unable to update or install any software that requires a connection despite my connection obviously working (since I'm posting this).

Chrome seems to work in safe mode with networking but AVG is still unable to install as it keeps saying I require an internet connection. Also my laptop which uses the same connection appears to work perfectly. I'd like to think it was a Chrome only issue but I'm unable to view https pages or update software regardless of what browser I'm using. Really baffled and frustrated

Using XP and SP3.

I've tried the following:

- Checking hosts file
- Winsock fix
- Releasing/renewing IP
- Malware etc scans
- Rootkit scans
- Disabling any firewall/antivirus while making sure Chrome is a trusted app
- Ensuring that the browser settings are set to automatically detect instead of connect via a proxy
- Router is not blocking anything
- Uninstalling/reinstalling Chrome

Hi there,

I like to think I'm quite technical but this problem has me stumped.

IE7 will not display any web pages. When I run IE7 I get the message "IE cannot display the webpage".

I've ran the "Diagnose Connection problems" link and IE7 reports that my internet connection is working. IT IS! I can run Skype, Email, online games etc. so it's def not the connection.

FIRE FOX WORKS! I installed Fire Fox to see if that would work and it DID! First time! Fire Fox displays websites no problem.

I have a second PC on the same desk and IE7 works fine on that so its not my router.

I noticed the problem shortly after doing a Windows update which installed several new files (27Mb worth). I've tried going back to SIX different restore points but got a message saying "Could not restore to that point" each time.

Even though I quite like FireFox I HATE to be beaten. Here's what I've tried:

1) I downloaded the 14.7Mb "IE7-WindowsXp-x86-enu.exe" and installed it. IE7 still did not show any web pages.

2) I then installed the update for IE7 (KB928089). No difference.

PS: I ALWAYS reboot after installing ANY app, patch or update etc.

3) I ran WinSockXPFix (before I installed FireFox) but that did not fix IE7.

4) I've ran IE7 with all Add-Ons DISABLED. That did not make any difference.

A:IE7 wont display any web pages, FireFox works fine!!

I've just noticed one more thing.

When I first run IE7 I get the message "IE cannot display the webpage". The page it's trying to show is http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=74005.

When I type any valid URL into the address bar I get the message "The address is not valid".

Also, I cannot set my home page to www.Google.com. It insists on defaulting to http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=74005. However if I click the home page icon it tries to load www.google.com and says "IE cannot display the webpage".

I think the message "The address is not valid" is very relevant rather than it just always showing "IE cannot display the webpage".

Hello everybody.
I'm no computer noob, and most computer problems I've encountered I've been able to solve myself or with information from the Internet.

However, this one leaves me no choice but to humbly ask your help, since I've lost any clue on how to figure it out.

Here's The problem:
For a few months now, ineternet Explorer is not showing any pages.
Whatever page I ask it to show, it shows the "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" page instead.
I click "Diagnose Connection Problems", and it finds no connection problems.
The strangest part here, is that Firefox, and any other online programs work perfectly, with no problems at all.

I'm running Windows Vista Basic with Internet Explorer 7.0.6.16575. I'm not sure it's the latest version, but can't check for updates, since the update checker is IE-based, and doesn't work on firefox.

I have Kaspersky Internet Security installed and fully updated on my computer. Made a full scan and found nothing. Tryed turning off firewall, to see maybe it is causing the problem, but no success. IE still showing no signs of life.
I have tried restoring IE settings to default, but it didn't help either.
I have tried playing with the network setting, but nothing worked either.
I've tried connecting through other wireless networks, but nothing ever works.
IE can't even connect to my router.

I've run a DSS scan, and there's nothing there I can see.

Hi,
 
I appear to be having trouble with my firefox browser.
 
My operating system is Windows 8.1. I have an Acer Aspire V3-772G which I bought some 18 months ago.
 
System details:
 
Processor: Intel® Core i7-4202MQ 2.2GHz with Turbo Boost up to 3.2GHz
Installed Memory (RAM) 16.00 GB DDR3 L Memory
System  type: 64-bit Operating, x64- based processor
 
A few days ago my firefox browser, which for no apparent reason at all, just seemed to slow to a stupendously very slow loading of pages. I had recently just been working on an issue in which I posted a thread regarding whether there was a possible virus/malware after google chrome terminated with the following message from Hitman Pro Alert:
 
 
Attack Intercepted
'Google Chrome 49' has been terminated to prevent execution of malicious code. Please check your computer for malware and software updates
 
As it happened, it appeared to be because of a conflict somewhere in the Google Chrome, Trusteer Rapport and Hitman Pro Alert combination, and so the only way was to change the settings on Hitman Pro Alert as advised and shown in my thread:
 
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/611273/possible-virus-or-malaware/
 
However, there was no malware or virus detected by my own Avast or Malwareware bytes tools, and the tools used as instructed in the thread also showed my system to have none. Also, google chrome works fine, and my computer has not slowed in any way. My fir... Read more

I suppose the title says it all, my computer has some sort of infection where every search in google in both firefox and internet explorer redirect the searches to random pages. Additionally, typing in certain addresses simply won't load where I know the page should work, such as certain links on microsoft.com. Furthermore, I have enabled Automatic Updates and it tells me that it is not enabled even though it clearly is in the settings and going to the update page through internet explorer simply does not work. I have read through various other forums here at bleepingcomputer.com and followed their instructions but nothing has fixed the problem so I figured I'd post as well and start fresh. A huge thanks in advance to whomever is able to help me out. So, where do I begin?

So, now I have: OPERA as default, FIREFOX and IE. OPERA keeps redirecting to a blank page, but the other two (not default browsers) work...

Not just the text or the links, but the actual orange graphic as well. It's like they don't exist. In IE, everything appears. I can't think of a setting that's causing this.

I did not suspect that this was a virus.  But while Google-ing for a solution I came across a post here that resoved the issue. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/511425/virus-scan-failed-in-chrome/
 
Based on Chrome support forums suggestions:
1. Even though IE and FireFox can download files I have tried to disable the scanning of download.  via a registry change under MS\policy key.
2. Disable Anti-virus
3. Renaming AVG8.dlls and rebooting.
4. Running Malware AntiBytes
5. Uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome.
 
My futile attempts to clean the machine:
1. I have tried to disable any toolbars (AVGSafeSearch)
2. Uninstall all AntiVirus appliactions.  I found traces of AVG8, AVG9, Advast, and AVG2104.
3. When that failed I loaded MS Security Essentials
4.  Check for multiple firewalls running
5. Installed new copies of IE and Chrome
6. Ran windows update, just to be up to date.
7. Ran SFC /Scannow
8. Ran SuperAntiSpyware
9. Ran Spybot S&D
10. Ran TDSSLiller
11. Ran HitManPro 3.7
 
The registry has strange random numeric entries that I believe came from a virus.  I am in over my head and need the help of a professional volunteer.

The fact that Internet Explorer and Firefox aren't exhibiting this problems makes me suspicious of Google Chrome being corrupt.
 
I would try uninstalling Chrome in the Control panel under Programs and Features.
 
I would then type regedit in the Search programs and files box and press Enter.
 
When the registry opens click on Edit and then click on Find.
 
In the find search box type Chrome and then click on Find next.
 
This should show up as highlighted in blue, right click on this and choose delete.
 
Do the same with Google Chrome.

I am running windows vista 64-bit with firefox 32-bit. This is a reinstalled version of vista on a clean Dell Inspiron 1545 that was completely wiped and redone about a month ago.
Everytime I go to http://www.canadianfreestuff.com the website shows the old, cached version of the page; previously it was always from a particular date, (Oct.15) but has now moved forward to the Oct.17 page. (today is the 19th). Between those occurrences, I had done a windows update. The problem does not change whether I reboot my computer or not.
I have gone into about:config and made sure my setting for browser.cache.check_doc_frequency is at 1, so it SHOULD be checking for the updated page everytime I go to the site, but it does not. I have also overridden the cache allowances to 0, as according to http://kb.mozillazine.org/About:config_entries#Browser.
I have also set the Options->Advanced->Network tab to store maximum offline cache as 0MB.

Also before anyone asks, YES I have cleared the AppData temp files, the Windows temp files, and the History->Clear Recent Data->Everything->All Entries option. I have searched my harddrive numerous times for any leftover Mozilla, Firefox, Cache, Temp or any other sort of files like that and found no more, but there MUST be.

I have had this problem previously, before I had to get my hard drive replaced for being old and cranky, but I do not know how it was resolved. I have contacted the webmaster who reports no other conflicts.

Did you check what program the .pdf file is associated with? It may be Firefox is trying to open it.

Go to your Control Panel > Folder Options > File Types - now scroll down the list until you find PDF and make sure it is associated to the Prog you have for that type of file, Adobe Reader, Foxit etc. by clicking on it and it will show you 'Opens with'

First and foremost, a BIG thank you to anyone who helps me, as I know this is a freee service and there are people out there charging good money for this exact same thing! So, yesterday while on the internet (IE) I suddenly noticed that the pages stopped loading and instead were acting as if my connection had given out. This was not the case as my connecton was fine, and I eventually found that Firefox began doing the same thing after a few hours. I realized it wasn't the Firewall either since it did the same when that was disabled. This is when I became a little suspicious and ran MBAM, which couldn't update because of some error that had to do with "user not allowing to connect to internet" or something like that. That was when I realized that it's a likely virus. I still ran MBAM however and even Avast, but neither found anything. Also, I am running Windows XP and this is a desktop computer (I'm posting from a laptop now).

Once I type in the URL and hit go, on the bottom left corner the process remains at "Waiting for (URL I'm trying to load)".

Since then I have updated my virus definitions in Norton 360 and complete a full system scan. I have used Spybot S&D to try to get rid of the problem also. To no avail, the problem loading certain webpages on Firefox 3 and IE 7 still persists.

I downloaded Firefox last night as I've heard great things about it, particularly after my battle with Begin2Search. However, it's not loading pages- at least not with any workable speed. I'm able to get into my yahoo mail okay, but any other pages I've tried to reach with it- including this one- take so excruciatingly long to load that I end up using IE anyway. I have SBC DSL and I think it's something in my computer that tends for pages to load slowly anyway (sometimes have to hit refresh multiple times) but IE will at least load the pages after a few refreshes. Firefox doesn't seem to respond at all.

Is there any way to fix this or do I just concede and reset IE as my primary browser? :-/ Also if anyone has any ideas about the slow page loading in general I'd be very happy- it's quite annoying (although downloads work great, so I don't think it's a bandwidth issue..we do have a router if that makes any difference).

Thanks!
 

A:Firefox 1.0.1 not loading pages

The router should makes thinks run faster, does it have the modem built in or as a seperate external device. I would check all the connection settings for firefox, it is posssible if this is not set correcct speeds can be affected.

Can you try a ping on your router. You would need its local IP address though. You should be able to get this from its web interface. When you have the IP go "START" and "Run" type "cmd" then "ping XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX". If you get a really high time then you know there is a problem with you connection to the router

What kind of router is it, how is it linked to the pc's

It sound like you have content or keyword filtering enabled in Norton 360 that's blocking access to certain websites based on keywords. Go into Norton 360 and turn off content blocking and/or parental controls. See if this helps.

I'm on Windows XP w/Service Pack 2 and Firefox 2.0.0.12.

Firefox takes too long load image heavy sites or load embedded videos. It has the potential to, but it acts like the process of loading a certain page stops another, or something. All I know is that when I go to an image-heavy site like IGN.com, FF takes forever to load, if it does at all. An embedded video I click "play" on will try to load but just keep trying until I give up.
This strange behavior started last week. I unplugged my router because I thought that was the problem. Things worked a little better, but not much. I know this is a firefox problem and not a general internet problem because Internet Explorer loads pages just fine. Even IE Tab pages within firefox load just fine. That's what gets me the most.

Firefox is my pal, and it used to only act like this if I had around 15 tabs open, each with heavy amounts of images to download (not "healthy", I know, but the awesomeness of certain sites will have a whole "pamphlet" open).

I know how to do a clean install if one is needed. What I don't know is if there's any way to save my extensions (and their settings) in case I need to start from scratch.

So, if anyone has advice, it would be appreciated.

Okay, here's the story.

Last night, my PC was running fine. It's been running fine since...well, forever. I wake up this morning and check my email on my laptop (2 computers in one room...handy XD) and yep, everything's fine.

Then I move to my PC to play some MMORPG and for some reason it wont connect to the internet.

Well, more specifically, it will connect to the internet, but my browser wont display any web pages. My Guild Wars 2 client wont connect to their servers. Steam wont connect. Mumble wont connect.

I went into cmd prompt and pinged google.com: "Destination Host Unreachable".

I've turned everything on and off again, waited the obligatory 10 seconds, I've reset my browser settings (IE is having the same issue) switched from wireless to wired connections...the list goes on.

Now, the ONLY thing I can think of being an issue (or being the only thing that's changed) is this: before I turned my PC on I opened it up to see if I had space for another HDD in there. I turned the PC off at the master power switch before hand. There was a fair amount of dust in there, but I didn't touch it, save to blow some clumps away. Task completed, I put the case back together and turned the power back on. a small 'pop' or 'crack' was audible, but I put this down to the connection being made.

Turned the computer back on, booted up no problems. Internet? No go.

I'm writing this post on my laptop, which accesses the internet fine (obviously).

Can someone please help?... Read more

Hello im new here.
My problem is this:
Sometimes firefox wont load any pages. When i click on a link it does nothing at all. So i thought i'd try IE and it has the same problem only IE gives me a cannot load page. But when i click on a link a few times both browsers will load it eventually, only without any pictures loading.
This only happens once or twice a day or it might not happen at all.
Also the other computers on my network seem to be loading pages just fine.

I have firefox 3.0.4 and IE 7 with windows xp

Thank you for your help

Hello, I just got a Lenovo Ideapad S10 with XP. The first thing I did was install Firefox, as well as flash player directly from Adobe. Then I got to work uninstalling Norton Internet Security using the Add/Remove Programs tool in the Control Panel. Since uninstalling Norton I am unable to use IE7. It will say that it is unable to load the web page and when I try to refresh, all that appears in the address bar is http:/// While I don't generally use IE7 for the web, I do want it to work properly. Any thoughts on what may be wrong? Thanks in advance for the help.

Hey,

I am using Firefox 4.0.1 and every time I close my browser with multiple tabs...or even
no tabs just some website I was viewing...when I go to start Firefox up again it will bring
up that last website or tabs of web sites that I was viewing.

Does anyone know how to prevent this and have it so only my chosen homepage will
show when I start up Firefox.

I've already gone into my Options/General and When Firefox Starts: show my home page is
set...but that doesn't seem to do anything
I've also tried to follow some advice about typing about:config into my browser and changing some
settings

CHANGES
browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes;0
browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo;0
browser.sessionstore.max_windows_undo;0
browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash;false

ORIGINAL SETTINGS
browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes;1
browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo;10
browser.sessionstore.max_windows_undo;3
browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash;true

again, these changes didn't seem to do anything...after I made the changes I closed Firefox
via the little X in the top right hand corner of my browser...when I started Firefox up again
all the web pages I didn't want to see were there staring me in the face.

appreciate any help thanks

When I try using Internet Explorer I get the error "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". I have no trouble with Firefox though. I use TrendMicro PC-Illin Security software and when I turn off the Personal Firewall IE works. I do not understand why it blocks IE though since in the "Program Control" section I specifically have Internet Explorer enabled. There is a "Network Control" tab which has a number of options not checked (enabled). Is there a specific one I should try enabling?

Hi. I am having a problem loading pages in Firefox. It shows that the page is loading, but nothing loads. I am also having the same problem in Avant Browser (an IE-based browser). However, IE works fine...

This seems to have started after a recent Windows "Security" Update for Windows XP (KB912919). I tried uninstalling the update, to no avail... I can't seem to get any browser to work, except IE. I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox.

I have tried configuring my firewall (Norton). But that doesn't seem to work either.

Perhaps it is coincidence, but when I try to update MS Antispyware (beta 1.0) and SpywareBlaster they both stop responding...

Any ideas, so that I may return to the wonderful world of tabbed browsing?

A:Firefox won't load pages

So do you eventually get the "page cannot be displayed" error? And regardless of the page you request? Sounds like IE isn't wanting to share the internet connection. But I'm not sure how to tell you to check it in windows.

My hoimepage is set to Google. When I open the browser, it looks like Google is loading, then in the top tab, it looks like it loads again. This happens on some other Web sites, also. I re-set Firefox, but the problem continues. I do not have any add-ons or extensions in Firefox. I also tried setting the homepage to Yahoo, but this never seems to stop loading - the loading page wheel just keeps spinning. I have Windows 7 - 64 bit for the OS and have MSE, MalwareBytes, SuperAntiSpyWare and Spyware Blaster installed which I run every day (except Blaster which doesn't have a scanning feature). They don't find any issues, except SuperAntiSpyware which finds anywhere from 30 to 90 "threats" when I run it. What's the problem? Any "easy" fix?

A:Pages loading twice with Firefox

Reset Firefox to factory defaults. 
 
Scan the entire computer with Malwarebytes in Safe Mode (after you updated the program)
 
Go from there.

Normally, I'm on the fixit side of things but this is more than I can manage. I'm working on a system that had a virus about a week ago. The viruses were removed with Malwarebytes, F-secure Online Scan, and other malware by Spybot was also removed. I've scanned the system to death in the last 3 days but this last problem persists. I've made use of the Trend stuff (not my favorite ) and AVG. Did I mention the system picked up the actual Viruses with AVG and Zone Alarm running. I didn't put it there that was what the client was running. The speed of the system performance is now just fine, FIREFOX is spastic. If I search either in the toolbar OR just on the www.google.com page I get a list of google search results. HOWEVER -- When I click on any of the choices on the page I go to a RANDOM page. If I click the Back button, about 50% of the time, I am sent back to the search results. The rest of the time, I"m sent to the result page I was expecting. I have removed the 2 bookmark sync add ons, and disabled the Skype add on. I also removed the .Net extensions just in case but no luck. I installed the Ad-Block Plus today ( if anyone is reviewing the file and needed to know ) Firefox also does this if it is running in SafeMode. Problem does not exist on Chrome. However, Chrome does not have a working ad-blocker so it isn't the browser of choice for me. I've run HIJACK This and there are NO wierd entries, I had a few things that were ... Read more

in fact ANY browser besides windows internet exploiter will not work anymore on my machine =(

it all started with allowing scripts and downloding the new firefox 3. somthing
version 2 worked fine. then a windows update to fix firefox 3 (haha) and now its even worse.
I have tried: 1: uninstalling firefox and re-installing, nope. 2: reinstalling fire fox version 2 and that wont work now either. 3: tried removing the windows update, nope. 4: installed safari for windows xp only to have it tell me the same thing "can't find internet" even tho its connected and on. 5: installed opera for windows xp and the same problem...

SOooooooooooo it leads me to believe that windows xp is blocking all browsers except its own IE somehow. Which is Horrible since its the worst, slowest, and most annoying browser out there.
(not to mention it seems illegal to do something like that, or at least it should be)

can any one help me???
anyone else have this problem??

thanks for your time and efforts - jorge
