Mozilla Freeze On Load Or No Load On Some Pages

Q: Mozilla Freeze On Load Or No Load On Some Pages

Just started two-days-ago. Mozilla and IE 6.0.2900. I did a system restore back for two weeks to no avail as "nothing changed."

Mozilla and IE, through Mozilla, either takes long to load or no load. If it does load does so without .gifs or some links. Some links are broken. Some will load the login page fine then freeze on the next page.

The perplexing part is that it affects only a few pages but not the whole site: my hompage, Nasdaq.com; ebay.com (after the login page), espn.com takes a while, 240 sec, to load then only partially load.

Network fine, signal strength fine, I've killed Symantec, no difference. Switched to Windows firewall, no difference. Killed Adblock, no diff. Ran Spyware Doc, nothing; NAV scan, nothing.

I'm lost. Anyone have an idea?

Thanks in advance.

Preferred Solution: Mozilla Freeze On Load Or No Load On Some Pages

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Mozilla Freeze On Load Or No Load On Some Pages

Ive been having the same problem. Im with Virgin and they were useless with the advice they gave. Try reinstalling your modem. My line has recently been upgraded to 8.1meg from 2.2 and i think the modem hasnt quite got the hang of it being this quick yet. It seems to work for a while but my line keeps changing. At first it ran at 7.6 and the problems with pages started so i reinstalled the drivers from the disk and it shot straight upto 8.1. Its been a pain for the past few days with some sits(even my homepage of Virgin) so i reinstalled it again and all the pages now come up.

What Anti-Virus and Firewall are you using?

Hi all!!

This is my first time on a forum so please excuse me if i do not give enough information. Let me know and i'll post it again

My problem is related to the Internet Browsers Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. One day I opened my Laptop as usual and Mozilla Firefox wouldn't open any webpage. It simply said 'done' in the bottom left hand corner. Sometimes it would open a page but it will be painfully slow and the pictures and videos wouldn't load at all.

Skype and Messenger connect but are extremely slow and it seems that the wirless connection is only receiving half of the packets it sends.....

I really am at a loss with this. I have no trace of Norton Anti Virus anywhere on my laptop. (after searching through a basic find file and folders search on my computer). In addition The windows firewall allows Mozilla Firefox and the proxy settings are all ok (Unchecked). Is there a chance that this could be a virus??

Any help would be very much appreciated :)

Thanks a lot !

About a week ago my computer started to run slower than normal. Programs would load at, what I thought, was the normal speed, and run just fine. Games worked fine. Loading of web pages worked just fine as well.

But as I said, about a week ago, my computer started running slower. Startup is fine and still fast. What has changed is the loading of programs will off and on be slow. When I do something within the program, sometimes it will freeze for just a moment before continuing with that process.

With the internet - web pages take extremely slow to load now. And when I click through pages on any website, myspace, facebook, gmail, cnn, whatever, each page within that site takes a while to load. A couple of times Firefox, of all things, has had to shut down unexpectedly. Sometimes it will give me an error message, and sometimes it just closes without any warning.

I have defraged my hard drive, scanned my computer with spybot, adaware, and Trend Micro Anti-Virus. And aside from the few 'low' security bits and pieces here and there, it hasn't picked anything up.

I have 1 GB of RAM on a Windows XP, AMD Athalon 3200+, EMachines computer. My computer is three years old. I have a large hard drive. I'm kind of at a loss and don't know what to do. I'm almost to the point of possibly just going out and buying another computer, but I thought I'd try this as I've heard positive things with the Hijack This program, so I am hoping with this progr...

Our users have IE 7 and 8. We keep them locked into place by pointing IE to our firewall product (tools > internet options > connections > lan settings), so that only approved sites are the ones that our people can access.In the last few days, several of them report issues with specific websites loading very slowly - load times of over an hour just to get the log-in screen to appear.Troubleshooting Steps:1.) Unchecked the "use proxy server for your LAN" under the IE menus---> Site resolves instantly, as it should---> This pointed me to the direction that perhaps the site wasn't configured for our firewall2.) Re-checked the "use proxy server" box, and specifically configured the site in our firewall---> Site continues to resolve slowly, with the same load times as before performing step 1That would normally indicate that the problem is on the vendor's end. Something may be wrong with their site. And that's the line of thought I was pursuing until I was reported back to that the users are having the same problem on other websites. These new websites they're having problems with are, and have been for a long time, configured properly in the firewall.I'm not sure what my next step is to pursue. What am I looking for now? I don't know enough about networking to figure out where to track next.

I've just started having this problem and its killing me.

I have 2 computers. My server is running windows 2000 server, and the secondary computer is running xp Pro.

The internet was working fine on my secondary computer, and then one day, it just started becoming slow, and it would not load pages (images wouldn't fully load, some pages wouldn't load at all). If i type in a url in the address bar for IE it would load the page quickly (probably from cache), but then proceeding to click links would cause "Page not found" or "timed out" errors.

I know that i can reach these sites, i ping them and get normal responses. It seems that IE is just not displaying them properly or something. The internet on my server computer works perfectly fine.

I have 2 nic cards in the server computer, 1 recieving the cable modem, and one receiving a LAN cable from my Hub.

Anybody have any ideas? Like i said, it worked on my secondary cmputer before. Also, i hooked up another computer to my hub and the internet was working fine, and then i installed Service Pack 3 and it started crapping out like mentioned above.

This is driving me NUTS!! ahhh. please help.

A:Doesn't Always Connect And Pages Don't Always Load Or Load Right


Sorry for the delay, this forum is very busy right now.

There is a program from a company called SearchHelp, Inc. on this computer. Sentry at Home or Sentry Remote. From the information I can gather on the Internet, this is a legitimate application aimed at allowing parents control over their children's web surfing habits. Judging by some of the lines in this log it uses a proxy server and several other techniques to filter internet content. This might explain why you have trouble connecting to some web sites.

If you are the owner of this computer and installed this program, I would suggest disabling it temporarily to see whether your problems persist.

Whether they do or not, post a fresh HijackThis log along with the results of this test.

A:Web pages wont load or load completely

Do you have more then 1 computer connected to your modem/router? If so, does this happen on them? If not, can you connect a separate one (ex: friend's laptop) to test?

Normally when you get errors like this it's best to rule out a problem at the modem/router and provider before going crazy over trying to fix a problem (that may not exist) on your PC(s).

Also just a couple of other questions:

Who is your internet provider (ISP)?
What connection type do they use (Cable/DSL/Fiber/Fixed Wireless/Mobile Wireless)?
What is the make and model of your router and modem?

Hey Guys!

So, I've run into a bit of a problem. For the past couple of days my Internet Connection seems to be acting strange.
Sometimes i can load pages almost instantly, for example google or wikipedia, and a minute later i have a loading time of above 30 seconds for the same page.
On the other Hand, when I start a large Download and it has to run for an hour or more, it wont abort, even when I can't connect to other Websites in the meantime.

The weird thing is that this happens on every Device in my Network. I've done a ping test in this little "downtime" and half the packages timed out.
Wireshark shows that somehow I keep sending out packages but for like 15 - 20 seconds I get no response at all.

I really don't know what to make of this and would appreciate some help^^
Thanks in Advance!

A few days ago I noticed that some of webpages weren't loading correctly. It was shortly after updating Java. Web pages that I visited like Yahoo, Adobe, and Facebook started to load plain text (no graphics of any sort). The Microsoft site wouldn't load at all until I read instructions somewhere on this forum about enabling secure sites. Most other sites loaded perfectly so I figured it had to be some sort of malware that was blocking me from certain sites. I ran a lot of scans using several anti-malware and anti-virus programs. I ended up finding about 3 trojans that were removed. That didn't solved my problem though. I got fed up and decided to reformat my computer hoping that whatever was wrong with it would get fixed, it didn't. Since I formatted my computer I tried updating Windows but I kept getting an error: "WindowsUpdate_8024402C". Wouldn't work in Normal mode even after I followed the instructions given to solve the error. Figured I'd give it a shot in Safe Mode with Networking, but it still doesn't work. Now I can't access the Microsoft website again. *sigh* I've tried pinging it but my requests keep getting timed out.

After reformatting I uninstalled all the bloatware, and reinstalled updated versions of Java, Adobe Flash Player, and Shockwave (thru majorgeeks as I couldn't download them directly from their sites). I've ran more scans but nothing comes up. I'm thinking maybe there's something wrong with my winsock2 but I'm not touching it O_o. I forgo... Read more

Hi everyone. I've got a very strange problem that just began happening out of no where. When browsing the net I can no longer go to websites such as www.zone.com, I can only check my e-mail when I'm lucky and the website decides to load without displaying "the page cannot be displayed" error message. More than half of the images on everyone webpage display as not loadable little X marks, even on this website. When attempting to open random websites after searching on google for example, more than 3/4 of the web pages I click on give me the "page cannot be displayed" msg instantly without even trying to load. This problem just began recently out of no where. Windows firewall has always been off and never had problems untill now. I run Aluria Security Center and have never had problems. I also have tried adding these sites to my trusted list and it does absolutely nothing. Hope you guys can give me a solution. Thanks ahead of time.

A:Pages don't load, images don't load?

My computer is doing the same thing. Out of nowhere, there's a whole ton of webpages that don't work. I went to read my comics yesterday morning and Yahoo news didn't load.

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.

hello all

i have started noticing "hijacked pages,"

and that (so far, only when using "chrome," which is outdated - NOT by choice but because i am stuck with windows vista and GOOGLE will not longer support it...),

sometimes chrome will "hang" when attempting to perform operations such as "clear browsing data,

and then if i attempt to close chrome, it will make it so that system processes(?) such as my toolbar, ctrl+alt+del/task mgr, and restart will not work, forcing me to need to manually power off my computer,

and now as of today, most pages are not loading ("err_connection_failed" in chrome, but ALSO IN FIREFOX a lot of pictures in pages are not loading),

so i fear i have malware...

okay, here is the sysinfo readout:

Hi newbie here so go easy on me :wave:

My mum has a realtively newly built PC (about 2 weeks old), and has XP Professional installed along with Norton Antivirus 2003.

She is using dial-up internet with an external modem, and although her default homepage (bbc) loads straight away after that browsing becomes progressively slower and slower. Some pages do not load up at all after a while and she is forced to turn off her connection and try again. She cannot access any secure sites at all (for her internet banking and buying things). She has cleared her cache to no avail.

I have been told to see if a firewall is blocking secure ports 443, 84 and/or 8443. I'm not sure how to check that? I'm not even sure she has a firewall installed at all?

Should she try Mozilla Firefox? Should I install Norton?

I've checked her dialup internet provided (lineone/tiscali) and there appears to be no problems?

When you say they won't load, what exactly happens? Does it give an error message of any kind or just hang on a blank page?

On my laptop when I try to load IE or Mozilla the program opens but won't load webpages, even though my wireless connection states connected and signal strength 'excellent'. Using the phone line I get the same thing.

Here are the messages I get:

IE: Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage.
Mozilla: Server no found - Firefox can't find the server at my.yahoo.com

I have already visited a forum that works on malware and they have told me that is not what is causing my problem and they recommended I come here for help.

I appreciate any help you can give me. I need my laptop for school which is starting back up again next week and worried I won't have it.

Thank you

Maybe extension problems?

Open Fire fox in Safe Mode - Start > Programs > Firefox > Firefox (Safe Mode) - now open the Add-On's manager and disable all your extensions. Close Firefox.

Open Firefox normally and re-enable your extensions one or two at a time until you discover the problematic extension.

I have noticed on my Windows XP Home edition SP3 a problem using Mozilla Firefox just starting today. I was just recently on it using it fine on Saturday doing some college classes online (with multiple windows) and had no problems. Seems everytime I attempt to open this program now it will not load. I checked the task manager and can see it is eating up 100% CPU and of course just never loads but notice if I end the process the CPU usage goes back to normal. I have searched around and for some answers and here is what I have done so far. I have run Norton scans, my spybot S&D and even downloaded malwarebytes that all except for Spybot found issues that I corrected or removed. This was all to no resolution so I proceeded to upgrade my Mozilla from its older version and now currently have the 4.0 but this didn't help as well. I tried loading Mozilla firefox in safe mode but this even uses the same resources and the process has to be stopped. I tried uninstalling my Flash and Java and reinstalling without resolution. I did read your forum suggestions before posting and used the autoruns to make sure unneccesary programs are not running at start up taking a look at the most common and unchecked them. It doesn't seem that anything I am trying is helping. I would love some advice on what maybe my next steps could be?

I have Windows Home Premium OS on a HPDC5000 Pentium (4) CPU 2.80GHZ 1.24GB RAM with a 40GB hard drive and about 15GB available at this time.

So, my browser won't open since recently. I've been using Firefox via Sandboxie and neither would open, so I uninstalled both programs and reinstalled just Mozilla but that didn't help.
Explorer is working just fine.
When I open Windows Task Manager it displays firefox as an active process with 32.428 K of memory usage but not as a current application obviously.
I tried runing firefox in safe mode and sometimes it opens, sometimes not.

So, any thoughts would be greatly appreciated since I really don't like using Explorer!

I have Mozilla and IE 9, and for some reason neither of them are working when it comes to watching videos via youtube.com or even vevo.com. It's getting to be quite ridiculous. For instance, when I open IE 9 and go to youtube to watch a video a prompt pops up saying I need to install Adobe Flash. I do so, and it shows that it has successfully installed, however, the next time I shut down and restart my lap top up it does it again. It is not staying on my computer. Is their a way to fix this or what can I do to make it permanent? It is quite annoying. Thanks in advance.


A:IE 9 and Mozilla won't load videos, HELP!

Flash could be corrupted. The best way to find that out is to use the uninstall tool at the link and then install a fresh copy.

Hey guys,
I've done my fair share of lurking on this site, some exceptional information! I do have a minor problem with my Firefox though. I've searched high and low, the annals of the internet, and haven't found nothing that has helped. I've compressed my Mozilla .dll files in the Mozilla directory using UPX, that didn't help. I have prefetched my Mozilla shortcut target, no go. Lastly, I have altered my Mozilla shortcut to be compatible with a Windows 2000 set-up, still no improvement. Every time I completely exit out of Mozilla, and click back on it, it literally takes 10-15 seconds for the program to load. Any other suggestions?

A:Mozilla Ridiculously Slow to Load

How many add-ons do you have installed for it? Excessive add-ons will slow down the browser. Also, how much RAM do you have? I used to have 448MB of RAM and I would hesitate to open Firefox, because it took so long to open.

Dear Friends,

Hope all is well...

It seems like it takes an extreme amount of time when I start my computer for the first time. Or if I restart it for everything to operate properly.

It the last thing in the taskbar that loads is AVIRA..it takes a long time to get there though.

Also please note the "odd" icons I get every so often.. Just one of these came with a website today

Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.

I just downloaded Mozilla Firefox 1.0.6 and I can't get any pages to load PERIOD!

Everything worked fine before I made the upgrade - and I even tried IE, and everything seemed to be working there, so the problem has to be with Firefox.

I'm getting really pissed off. Everytime I install an update with Firefox, I encounter some weird problem.

I even tried uninstalling this and then installing it directly from the homepage, and still the same problem. I can't get any page to load.

I have a HP Pavilion zv5000 laptop running Windows XP. Whenever I view a picture on the internet, the picture loads very fuzzy and looks like a lot of the pixels in the picture have merged together into blobs. This makes the pictures hard to see and basically useless. This happens when I am using both Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.

When I save a picture to my hardrive and open using a picture viewer, the picture still looks fuzzy. However, if I take a picture with my digital camera and import it onto my hardrive, it looks fine, crystal clear and not fuzzy at all.

Amazingly, about once of out 100 times I start my computer, this problem doesn't occur and the pictures load perfectly clear on Mozilla Firefox and IE. However, the next time I start my computer, the pictures are back to loading fuzzy.

Any ideas on what is wrong and how to fix it?

Recently, a bunch of glitches appeared within many of my internet applications, like IE7 (some websites don't load, some plug-ins don't install), Firefox (After maybe 10 minutes of surfing, links/new pages will not load, and the firefox.exe process cannot be terminated by task manager. As a result, Windows cannot properly shut down, and about 50% of the cpu is used up.), utorrent and Ares (both often freeze/do not work). There are also a few other small glitches that I don't have off the top of my head.

I suspect that there is some malware on my computer, but I cannot find/remove it. I have CA Internet Security installed and its full scans turn up nothing. I have also tried AVG and Ad-Aware but it seems to also find nothing (that fixes the problem).

Can anyone help?

As of 5/22/08, my firefox won't completely load. Also, when I click on 'Bookmarks', it won't completely load. When I access 'managing bookmarks', and exit, then 'Bookmarks' will load and show all bookmarks. Also, half the time, Mozilla won't respond at all from my desktop. I have not had any problems prior to a couple of days ago. My wife has, over time, loaded a large number of bookmarks into the computer. Is it possible that I am running out of RAM and need to remove some of those bookmarks? I have 2.7GHz, 2GB RAM. Thanks - hawkeye777

First of all let's check you have no extension issues causing your problems. Start Firefox in Safe Mode (from Start > Programs) and if it loads normally and your bookmark access is trouble free then I'd suggest it was an extension problem. If so, disable all your extensions (while in Safe Mode) and close Firefox. Re-open Firefox normally and enable your extensions 1 or 2 at a time (then close and re-open Firefox) to find the culprit(s).

It won't be a RAM problem but what do you mean by large number of bookmarks? I have over 1500 and no real problems.

So I've been having this problem intermittently for around 2 months, it used to be minor but has progressed to full blown hair tearing now.

Randomly (there seems to be no reason for setting it off) My webpages will suddenly stop loading, I could be half way through a website, or loading a new one, it does not seem to matter.

I will get

The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Sometimes I can no longer load anything at all, sometimes it will just be that website that I can no longer load, sometimes it will be some pages will not load and some still work fine.

Up until right now, I used to be able to reset the router and I could then again browse websites, until the problem would resurface in another 2-30 minutes, it really seems totally random. However now it seems I can no longer access some websites even after restarting the router several times. This has happened with a myriad of websites, such as facebook, google.com trademe.co.nz (nz trading website) Kongregate.com and the list goes on. It seems to be totally random as to which sites it will affect at any given time

Have you attempted to use any other browsers, to ensure that it's not your computer's fault?

There are twenty or thirty sites I visit regularly.

Recently I've been having some problems. Some sites I can visit like normal, but some sites I can't. I get "cannot find server" errors.

I cannot visit 9/10 websites on the internet because of this.

I have run Search & Destroy, Spyware Doctor, HouseCall, HijackThis, and the virus scanner on pcpitstop.com. I've run some of those in Safe Mode as well.

I cannot ping a website with cmd, but if someone else gives me the ip for a site url I can't visit, and i put the ip in the address bar, it will work like normal.

I've tried using IE and FireFox. I'm currently running FireFox (on XP) because I'm concerned about the security of IE during this problem.

I've done a system restore to before the problem but it didn't help.

There are three computers in my house, two of them are affected, one isn't. So I don't think this is an ISP issue, but I could be mistaken.

Is anyone out there familiar with this problem?

Keep in mind that any links or such you provide me I will most likely not be able to follow, because the page likely won't load. If you suggest I download something please provide a direct link to the zip/exe file.

Thanks in advance.
