Windows 7: Web pages not loading properly in IE & Firefox

Web pages not loading properly in IE & Firefox

I've been wrestling with this problem a while now and none of the solutions I've found so far has worked.
I'm having problems with IE 11 & Firefox 27.0 displaying web pages properly. I get tons of "This page can't be displayed", "The website declined to show this page" and additionally in Firefox only - "The connection was reset". but I can refresh the page and it loads correctly. I'm up-to-date as far as Windows Update & Flash Player are concerned.

Also, IE plays videos on youtube with no problem but can't play them on vevo. Interestingly, I added vevo to IE 11's compatibility view and got a popup saying "Looks like you're using a version of Internet Explorer that we no longer support. Please upgrade to Internet Explorer 10 or later, or try using a different browser, and come back to VEVO.com to start watching new and classic videos".

Firefox plays videos on both youtube and vevo without problems.

Anyone have any ideas on what's going on?

Thanks,

Hi welcome to SevenForums,
Update your browser is common for a website that doesn't recognize comp-view when it's being used by Internet explorer,
Press the F12 key when you get the popup message and verify what is being used,
For ie9-10 Click Browser mode and check ie10 if not checked.
You might see this to get rid of what ever comp-view lists that exist on your machine,
This applies to All versions of ie,

Web pages not loading properly in IE & Firefox

Appreciate the help.
I made a mistake using the word popup, the page just changes to show the message. Unchecking "Use Microsoft compatibility lists" and rebooting doesn't help. I'm wondering if it has something to do with video drivers or a problem with Flash and IE 11. Something else I noticed was in System and Security in the Control Panel it shows Flash Player (32-bit) even though when I downloaded Flash it said I was getting the 64-bit version.
I would try updating the video drivers but HP hasn't released updated drivers for my video card in years and the ones on the ATI site won't install and tell me I need to see my PC manufacturer for the driver.

thanks,

If you think your driver is not quite working,
Switch to Software rendering,
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/149063-internet-explorer-gpu-hardware-acceleration-turn-off.html
Otherwise I wouldn't worry about the 32 bit flash listing it's perfectly normal ie11 uses mostly 32 bit processes by default,
Unless you've activated Enhanced protection mode which if so I would doubt any videos would play,
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/280434-internet-explorer-10-enable-32-bit-64-bit-ie10-windows-7-a.html
There's another option for flash though,

But ultimately verify Gear symbol on the top right and Safety,
Make sure Activate x filtering is not effecting video playing on Vevo,
Cheers.

You would need to delete your browser history to complete getting rid of the comp-view lists from Microsoft,
I've personally never had to add a site to the comp-view list before ?
Clear your cache,
Open ie,
Use Ctrl+Shift+Delete or Gear symbol/ Safety/ Delete browser history,
Check All of the boxes/ Uncheck the very top box and Delete,
Close and reopen ie.

Try the same websites in Safe Mode with Networking. It's a quick check to see if the issue is with windows in normal mode only.

Safe Mode

If the problem does not occur in safe mode, try a clean start to see if there is a conflict.

In Safe Mode with networking & IE I get the same old "...using a browser we don't recognize..." message as stated above. Sometime in the last few days vevo quit working in Firefox too. Problems with having to reload pages before they display properly persists.

Post a link to the site where the issue is occurring,
Also use the Fill in your system spec's link above my hot signature,
So we might be able to see if there are any drivers available,
Cheers.

It is easy to check - just look at task manager.

The 32bit flash app is the control panel applet. It can be used to set the properties of the 64bit flash app.

The 64bit flash app is what plays the videos.

Vevo has a problem. I could not get a video to play using IE11 (64bit or 32bit), Pale Moon 24.3.2 (64bit), Chrome 32.0.1700.107 32bit.

Notice that even with EPM off, IE's 64bit parent process loads a 64bit flash player into a 32bit child window.

Attempts to play the video at this link...

Are shown in the screenshot above and the screenshots below:

The only version that did not give that error was IE11 - but it still would not play videos.

The featured videos played well,
The video you posted I used the search for it and after going into full screen mode with the F11 key found it here,
