I am using IE7 and Firefox3, until a week ago when I am having problems uploading files and pictures on my email and friendster. So, I go back to using IE6... now, I can attach email files but still unable to upload/attach pics. I also reinstall firefox 3 but worst, still cannot attach files and pics (yahoomail) and l cannot upload pics to friendster etc. I keep receiving " connection interrupted, connection error, connection reset, and connection not encrypted." I already tried to check my firewalls and also the stuff everybody is talking about changing run time changing it to 30 seconds (about:config), BUT to no avail. Also, my firefox speed is slowing. This really is frustrating me. I have been uninstalling and reinstalling programs already. Can anybody help me make my firefox work same as before? I am not a computer savvy... can you detail the process?
I was having this issue, for me doing the following worked.
Edit > Preferences > Advanced, Click on the Encryption Tab and uncheck Use TLS 1.0. Ok it, and try the sites you were having issues with. Maybe even close and reopen the browser if this doesn't work right off.
Hey thanks. I have browsed a dozen sites where this problem is mentioned and no cure worked. I had on my own cleared cache and forms but not cookies. I still don't see why cookies should cause that behavior but it's a relief to have back the few sites that I had been locked out of by this consternating error.
I had this problem. It happened in all my Firefox profiles, some of which didn't have any extensions. It didn't happen with Safari, ping worked OK, etc - nothing to do with the router or network.
In a clean (no extensions) Firefox profile, I disabled all the multimedia plugins - Flip4Mac, Quicktime, ShockwaveFlash and Silverlight. Re-tried Facebook, and it worked. Re-enabled the above plugins one by one to see which one it was - it still works now, with all four enabled. Cleared caches etc, still works.
So I figure somewhere, some content has caused one of the above plugins to save some state which prevents it working, and that some advert on facebook's main page uses said plugin to stream some content. Turning the plugins off and on again has presumably reset the plugins configuration state to default.
It's possible that whatever corrupted one of these (notoriously vulnerable) plugins might have been an attempted exploit, so I wouldn't advise ignoring the problem.
Recommended fix, given network is OK and problem is actually with Firefox:
1) Disable all multimedia plugins
2) re-enable or, preferably, update them with new ones, sourced independently
(by independently I mean not via their own update checkers - chances are,
any exploit is trying to replace the plugin with a zombie of some sort.)
