Windows 7: Incomplete displays on some pages using Firefox and Windows IE

02 Nov 2014   #11

Windows 7 Pro 32

It's JavaScript related and nothing you can or should do anything about. Developer Tools can be used for many things, but I only meant you should use it to see if any content couldn't be loaded successfully. Stick to the Developer Tools in IE. To analyze JavaScript is only confusing and won't help.

HTTPS and HTTP Javascript links

The HTTPS link returned the following:
This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.
What Should I Do?

If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue. uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for (Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)

The HTTP link did return a lot of text. Here is the preamble:

Your HTTPS and HTTP results are the same I'm getting, so nothing unusual there. But if the page you're having problems with is dependent on this JavaScript page loaded with HTTPS, the page won't function properly. When you try the HTTPS one and see the message you can click "I understand the risks" and make an exception for it. That way it'll ignore the warning and load it. Not sure if it would fix your problem though. Or to put it this way: if this is the root of the problem then other people would have the same problem with it.

As for the Program List I'll leave that to ThrashZone, but I noticed a tweak software. They sometimes tweak too much and cause problems.

Personally I would get rid of java both versions and reset both browsers to default and delete any personal settings,
Then reuse tfc and shut down and restart,
If still no joy do a repair install,

Export Favorites to html file before resetting Internet explorer/ just to be safe.

Thank you Tookeri and ThrashZone!
The problem has been fixed. Here's what I did:
1. I followed Thrashzone's final recommendation and uninstalled both Java versions, reset both browsers to their original default settings, ran TFC, shut the computer down and restarted it.
Unfortunately, that did not fix the problem -- both browsers still refused to show the contents of the buttons and banners.
2. So I went into control panel -- appearances and changed the system display colors to windows classic from the high contrast setup I had been using. That fixed the problem. Both browsers now display properly.
(The problem was that I had selected a white type color that didn't show against a white page background).
The real problem, of course, was my own clueless stupidity.
I apologize for putting you guys through all that back and forth. I must say that your willingness to pursue this problem with excellent suggestions and prompt followups has completely sold me on Windows 7 Forums. You guys are terrific. I've actually learned a lot just by doing what you told me to do.
So thank you very much! I truly appreciate your help.

Great, and thanks for reporting back! You're not the only one that learned something here. I would never have been able to figure out it was an appearance thing

How to get web pages to open with Firefox?
I've been using Windows 7 since it came out, and up to a month or so ago, whenever a program opened a web page for me, it opened in Firefox, my preferred browser. For the last few weeks -- possibly since I installed SP1 for Win7 --- web pages now open in IE rather than Firefox. I'm not...
