I cannot Access the website "Speedtest.net"

Hey, i am trying to access the website said in the title. I just keep recieving the same error message, Whish i have attached to this thread. I have also tried a lot of googling and trying out all the answers people have to offer. But nothing seems to be working. I have also sent an email to the ookla, hopefully they get back to me soon as possible and ill update here.

Here is a SCREEN CAP aswell:

If the link is dead, please let me know and ill update the link.

I am able to access their support site: https://support.speedtest.net/home

EDIT 1: Here is another thing that pops up if i dont get the other one: http://vvcap.net/db/GpUownenMN-PjyIsSMr-.htp

EDIT 2: I don't really want to give up on this but its looking more and more like i will have too. Because it strange. My brother (lives in same house) can access Speedtest.net by Ookla - The Global Broadband Speed Test. Is that strange? could it be mearly a setting that i have on my pc that is blocking it? or could it be an issue that i read the other day from some guy, that Speedtest has banned my Ip for some reason and that i should Change my mac address and reset the router to see if that fixes it <<<< should i try this? or not recommended?

No problem if that does not resolve the issue Adobe could be the cause ...

I thought adobe was the issue to start with. So I did a clean install of all their browser products.

I would highly suggest before doing all this you install a anti virus program first.

I use MSE.

Download Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows

It probably has nothing to do with Adobe's flash - at least not directly.

If you look at the path in the error message you will see a part that says omni.ja! Everything in the path after the exclamation point is referencing the path of stuff inside the file omni JAR file. That JAR file is a compressed file that contains tons of stuff. It also contains the text/code for the error webpage named netError.xhtml.

If everything had worked as it should have, you should have seen this:
I cannot Access the website &quot;Speedtest.net&quot;-error.png

Instead, your Firefox (FF) browser probably received some (but not all) of the speedtest website. FF does not always handle partial page loads well. FF was going to tell you that it could not load the page, but there was a problem with FF processing the few lines of info that it did get from speedtest and FF's internal code that presents the "can't load the page" image shown above. When this conflict happens, FF just barfs out the error that you posted. This has been an issue for years now. (Notice the 2010 date on this bug report and notice the modified date of 17 Oct 2014.) FF's developers don't seem to be able to fix the issue.


As an aside, you can copy the file omni.ja named to your desktop and rename the ja extension to ZIP. Windows (file) Explorer will then let you snoop around the Chrome stuff that is a part of Firefox.

Having said all of that - I would suggest that you abandon Firefox as provided by Mozilla and try Pale Moon's Firefox build (which is optimized for the Windows OS). I'm using the 64bit version of Pale Moon. If you transition to Pale Moon, you won't get the parsing error that you showed in your first post because Pale Moon's developer does not use the omni.ja file. See the debate in this thread.


If you really want to stick with Firefox as built by Mozilla, then I cannot suggest anything that will prevent you from sometimes seeing the parsing error that you mentioned in your first post. If you Google "omni.ja", you will find lots of forum threads with no real resolution. Most say to just re-install Firefox. Doing so probably won't help you.

I have no idea why the speedtest website did not fully load for you when using the Firefox browser. When I have issues with websites via Pale Moon*, I fire up IE and/or Chrome and see if it is browser specific.

*I cannot even recall the last time that I had any problems with Pale Moon... but you get my point.
