Some web pages are not loading correctly, or have long delay's after clicking on a bookmark. This does not happen to all web sites, only ones with detail. IE (http://www.newsday.com/
) is one example, there are many more.
The first time I click the bookmark it will retrieve some of the web page but not all of it. On other affected sites it will show it going to the site but then just hangs.
If I stop the current request and refresh the page in Firefox it will load correctly.
Firefox appears to have trouble receiving some web pages (Windows BBS & Craigslist load correctly every time) but only when first accessed, once the web page comes up it will load correctly on repeat requests to load the page, unless I exit Firefox and restart the program.
This problem does not happen when using Internet Explorer, or when using a different computer on the same modem/router.
I have tried disabling all add-ons and extensions, and started Firefox in its safe mode.
I have even deleted all the Files in C:\ Programs Files\Mozilla Firefox, and reinstalled Firefox's latest edition. (same version I deleted). No Joy..
I did extensive cleaning of the computer with ATF, CCleaner, and RegSeeker, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, & SUPERAntiSpyware but that was only after the problem started.
I also tried to do a restore to a earlier date but never was successful due to error message stating the restore failed despite trying 2 of about 10 dates available.
Java is up to date, as is all my other programs per Secunia PSI program.
One item that may or may not have caused the problem is.... I downloaded a new cleaning program to see what it was all about.. It had among its many fixes... a option to adjust the computer network, browser, and maybe the TCP
setting for "optimum internet, optimum browser / computer speed" depending on if I wanted gaming or regular use of the computer and my problem surfaced shortly after.
I tried reversing the "optimum" setting using the program "go-back" option but no joy by doing that.
I also reset my computers network connection setting using the utility program SG TCP
Seeing that everything works OK when using IE, I believe the problem is only with Firefox and how it requests and or receives data vie the internet and how it handles that data.
Given that I reinstalled Firefox and also started the program vie Firefox's Safe Mode with all add-on disabled and I still have the issue.. could anything in my Firefox personal data files or bookmarks (any files not deleted and then reused in the new install of Firefox be causing the problem?) Any cookies in those files I amuse were deleted as my option setting is to delete everything except passwords when Firefox closes.
thanks upfront for any help..
