Have you tried to uninstall it and then re-install it?


Open firefox, press ctrl+shift+a --> opens add-ons window

Or open firefox, click tools (menu), click add-ons

Check if shockwave flash is "Always enabled"


(I'm using: win 8.1 x64, FF25.0.1, shockwave flash 11.9.900.152 - 11.9 r900)

Inside firefox tools, options, advanced tab - general (sub)tab, untick use hardware acceleration when available, click ok, close firefox, start it and try to navigate those websites...

If this works, you could find a similar option inside the other browsers (if you want to use another browser that it is not firefox, nor MSIE).

Have you tried with the firewall disabled?


It seems that some antiviruses not correctly uninstalled could cause this behaviour. If this is your case, run their special uninstaller for their programs.

Just as an example: if you have used Norton antivirus --> download and use Norton removal tool (for Windows)


Another try (I use firefox as an example, but you can do the same for the other browsers):

close firefox

go to C:\Users\your-user-name\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

rename the present profile

example: Mine is q3m3lfud.default --> q3m3lfud.backup

Are you using ipfilters? Peerblock? Peerguardian?

Are you using/changing your HOSTS file?

Are you using any special antispyware program, like, just as an example, spybot search and destroy?

Which programs have you recently installed on your system?

Are you using p2p programs? If yes, are these programs running when the problem appears? Or does your problem appear even if your p2p programs are not running?

Have you tried to scan your PC for malware?

For example, with these programs:

adwcleaner (click)

Junkware removal tool (click)

superantispyware free (click)

sophos virus removal tool free (click)

MBAM free (click)

stinger 32 bit (click) or stinger 64 bit (click)

(according to your windows BIT version)

MS Safety Scanner 32 bit (click) or MS Safety Scanner 64 bit (click)

(according to your windows BIT version)

Have you tried to start firefox in safe mode ?

(press and keep pressed shift on your keyboard, click firefox, click start in safe mode)

Have you tried to perform a Windows clean boot/startup?

Have you tried to start Windows in safe mode?

Thanks to you for having said the culprit ;)


Problem was: Google chrome (31?), mozilla firefox 25, opera (18?), safari (5.1?) weren't loading some webpages, like imdb.com, youtube.com, facebook.com, ign.com (and so forth).
Only MSIE 11 and torch browser didn't have this problem (they were not affected by it)

After a lot of tries, just starting the pc in safe mode revealed that the browsers were working good.

Culprit program was Ad muncher.

Why? Don't know... Maybe it was incompatible with some other installed programs on zikoeidos's pc.
