Dear Experts, I have a weird problem with RDweb and Outlook.

1). Firefox is opened fullscreen on the screen.
2). Above Firefox is Outloko fullscreen aswell.
3). When I hover my mouse over a email and stop moving for 2-4 second. Outlook minimizes
4). At the moment I click or move my mouse again. Outlook jumps back to full screen.

All of this is happening via RDweb.

I may think that this pop-up has something to do with it.
I have a customer who switched their website over to SquareSpace and use a calendar that derives its information from a Google Calendar - everything was working fine until about a week ago when only one person can see the calendar on their system - and only on Firefox, not IE or Chrome.  Other people get a permissions error or says it cannot display in the frame.  I have had them try different browsers, clearing cache/history but same issue.  The link is:
I do not want my users to right in a iFrame and save the file onto the  computer.

I was able to control it on Chrome web browser but only version 60 and 64 versions of Chrome. I am able to right click in the iframe and save  the document in Internet Explorer and FIrefox browsers.

How can I disable right click in an iframe that display a PDF file or is there any way to ensure that the PDF file being viewed can disable the save/print options.
I am running the ATT Speed Test ( in Internet Explorer and Firefox.

The download test works great (54 Mbps) . . . but the upload test (20 Mbps) appears then all of a sudden this message:

"Error:  Test Cancelled due to browser tab switch"

What does that mean?
My domain a 2008 R2 server on a 192.168.0.X.
I can nearly view all webpages but there are a few that have recently started to give errors when I try to access them.
I get the error in firefox or similar on other browsers:
We can’t connect to the server at
If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

    Try again later.
    Check your network connection.
    If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

I suspect it may be a DNS issues bu tsince I can view any other webpage just a few specific how can I tell?
Hi everybody,

I have only one Exchange 2016 CU9 server with all roles. It's working fine.

I have one problem with OWA from external. The external IP of the Exchange server is a NAT in internal server IP.

When I'm in external, if I go on the OWA, I have the form that ask me for the username and password.
I enter the credentials and I have this error. Same problem with Firefox and Chrome.  

If I click on "Refresh the page", owa is displayed and working fine.

I did a lot of tests.
If I did the same thing but i'm waiting 2-3 second before enter my credentials, owa is weel and immediately displayed. It's like there's a timeout.

I don't have problem with Outlook and autodiscover, only this "timeout" with owa.

Do you have an idea ?
Many thanks for your help.
Best regards
Win7Pro/64. Firefox latest version. Friend was copying some data from my machine and using Firefox. Next day, the Firefox screen was in the middle of my dual monitor setup, 1/3 on one side of bezels, rest on the other. I've read about this problem on single monitors where only a third or half of the FF screen comes up. I tired all the suggestions - deleting the two files always mentioned, looking for something in the FF profile that might affect this. I can grab and move the screen, but the position will not stick after FF shutdown and restart - only half the window shows, or in my case, window split between two monitors. Again, I've tried all the Mozilla forum suggestions save a reset/refresh. This does not happen with any other program.
I am running my desktop on Linux Mint 19.0. Recently when I use any browser (Firefox, Chrome), uncountable tabs appear which I didn't request. I re-installed Firefox and Chrome, I have rebooted the machine but to no avail. Does anybody know what the problem is and how to fix this?
I need to find out if my desktop can be fixed for free, using my own skill level and get my pop ups and get the virus out of my computer.  I do not have  much savy on computers and i really like using but the last two years or longer, it's been going on. Linus 17 has kept every type of self help from being done. That's why i am here, because i am at my wits end. Can you help me at all, for free, or is it out of the question?  Desperate in the Hoosier state, and i do not mean maybe.

Firefox has been a dog on my Windows 10 computer for the past six months.  I closed it out and Chrome just seems to keep on pluggin.  I've done some uninstalls/reinstalls of the application a couple of times as I tend to try bounce  between the two.  I was wondering if other people experience high memory usage and general slow response for page loads or is it just me.  Any steps to correct this beyond, cache, cookies, and some other basic steps?     I removed all plugins and there is no Flash on my computer beyond the built in Chrome one.  Some sage advice would be appreciated.
Bandwidth much more narrow in Firefox than other browsers..?
When making a bandwidth check with or from Edge and Chrome I get 110-125 Mbps in download, while only 15-40 Mbps in Firefox.
PC with Win10 (up to date with Windows Update) and Firefox (also up to date).

No plugins/addons in Firefox to limit bandwidth. No difference when starting Firefox in safe mode either...

Any ideas?

So I have find the id names on my projects in

CSS file as below:

.delete-for-reals img,
.delete-for-reals input {

.delete-for-reals .rsuite-message {
  vertical-align: -2px;

	.rsuite-message {
		vertical-align: -2px;

Open in new window

So totally the id available in .css, .hbr and .less files.

Please help me on this. Thanks in advance.
When a stored response is used to satisfy a request without validation, my browser is not showing me the HTTP reponse header field: "Age"?

Just take a simple test.html file, which is chacheable by default. Now visit the page 2 times, so the second time the file is shown directly from cache without validation.

Firefox shows me response headers like this:

Date: Mon, 12 Mar 2018 16:05:18 GMT
Server: Apache/2.4.17 (Unix) OpenSSL/1.0.1e-fips PHP/5.6.16
Last-Modified: Mon, 12 Mar 2018 12:24:12 GMT
Accept-Ranges: bytes
Content-Length: 143
Content-Type: text/html

Open in new window

But why Firefox does not show me the "Age" header field?


When a stored response is used to satisfy a request without validation, a cache MUST generate an Age header field

And see:

However, lack of an Age header field does not imply the origin was contacted, since the response might have been received from an HTTP/1.0 cache that does not implement Age.

A browser's cache is not HTTP/1.0, so the response headers must contain an Age header field. Firefox is not showing me "Age"?

Are browsers only showing the response and request headers of the server? But if that's the case then they had to show no response headers at all, because there was no response from server in case of "200 OK (cached)"?

So I don't understand this? What's the logic behind this?

P.S. The example was about Firefox, but for example Chrome is doing the same.
I just did a test in Firefox. I have an PHP file (without sessions). The reponse headers do not contain a validator or any other caching related headers, except:

Cache-Control: no-cache

Open in new window

When pressing the back button in Firefox followed by the forward button, the file is coming from cache when coming back on that page.

With "Cache-Control: no-cache" (and no validators), usually you would expect a request to the origin server, resulting in a "200 OK" response (NOT from cache).

I know that there is some different caching behavior with the back / forward button. See:

6.  History Lists

User agents often have history mechanisms, such as "Back" buttons and
history lists, that can be used to redisplay a representation
retrieved earlier in a session.

The freshness model (Section 4.2) does not necessarily apply to
history mechanisms.  That is, a history mechanism can display a
previous representation even if it has expired.

This does not prohibit the history mechanism from telling the user
that a view might be stale or from honoring cache directives (e.g.,
Cache-Control: no-store).

Here they are saying that the freshness model does not necessarily apply to history mechanisms. So when using max-age=0 or something like that (Expires), I can understand that the back and forward button can serve stale responses.

But no-cache is not part of the freshness model or is it? …
Firefox on more and more windows 10 Pro machines after Firefox updates give the following error and block ALL sites.  As per Mozzila - it isn't them.

sec_error_bad_signature only via proxy for https website.  I keep seeing this more and more at different sites.  Antivirus totally disabled even.  Chrome/Edge/IE work fine.  Also seeing what appears to be a huge memory leak on Firefox, a browser with no third party plugins and 5 tabs shouldn't use over 2 GB of RAM after a few hours.  Any one have a fix for all sites being blocked?

Hi there:

I have set up a printable page using css which renders well in chrome. However, in Firefox, the header is printing on every page. I tried to switch the tag to div with a class "header" and I got the same issue.  Is there any way to keep the header from printing on page 2 and beyond in firefox?

here is my code:

<!DOCTYPE html>

<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html"; charset=utf-8" />
<meta name="keywords" content="los angeles, hollywood" />
<meta name="description" content="talent and literary management in Hollywood" /> 

<title>XXXXXXXXXXXXXX </title>

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="newreelresumecss.css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="newreelresumeprint.css" media="print" />

<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" href="archetypeico.ico" />

<link href='' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>


<a href=""><img src="largelogo1.svg" width="325" height="69"/></a>
<div id="wrapper"><div id="clientname">XXXXXXX</div>

Hello Everyone:

I am sure some of you have run into this.

I have a locked down environment where users are not allowed to install software onto their PC.  Mozilla Firefox provides users the ability to install Firefox into their C:\Users\%Username% directory.

I am sending an SCCM package to uninstall Firefox, however I am deploying the uninstall package to be run only when the user is logged on so it will remove the entire program with the user's rights and to also remove the program from their C:\Users\%username% profile and HKCU registry keys.

When I try to run the Firefox uninstall program using the recommended "helper.exe -ms" command line, I am immediately prompted with UAC inquiring: "Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device?" and the following command line is shown when I click on to "show details"

C:\users\%username%OneDrive\Firefox\uninstall\helper.exe /UAC:2C090A /NCRC -ms

If I click on the No button in the UAC window, Firefox will get installed.

The million dollar question:  Is there a command line parameter I can run with helper.exe with "user rights "so it will run silently without prompting with UAC?  It seems it is uninstalling Firefox with user right because I am clicking on "No" at the UAC prompt, but I would prefer to avoid to have the UAC screen from appearing.  For the Chrome "user" uninstall, Chrome provides "--user-level" to used on their uninstall command line and UAC is not prompted at all.

Any thoughts on how…
I run 3 different browsers (Edge, Firefox and Chrome)

For some websites Chrome and Firefox display content garbled, and I have uninstalled, reinstalled them both, checked fonts, cleared caches, deleted browsing history, deleted all content and the issue just doesnt go away. It only happens for some websites (Facebook being one)

As an additional symptom, when I View source I get the same results - which would suggest its font related...

I dont want to rebuild (its my machine) but I am out of answers.... so throw something at me.
What the?

Hello everyone! I'm new here and I hope that you can help me.  I have problems with search redirects in my browser. Some sort of virus redirects all my search request’s to misleading search[dot]queryrouter[dot]com website. I use Firefox 51.0.1 along with Google Chrome and story is the same in both browsers. I have tried several methods:
-AdwCleaner -
-JwRT -
-Manual removal guide -
-Create new Windows account.
I performed full system scan’s and performed manual removal in Normal Windows mode and in Safe Mode with Networking – but this virus appears after first reboot again and again.
And only new account helped me to get rid of redirects and surf without any problems. But it is not a best way out. So I want to ask you how can I remove this virus from my main Window account?
Thank you for your assistance!
