Hi, 

thanks for taking the time to report a problem.

I wasn't able to reproduce it on latest Nightly (Firefox/33.0 ID:20140709030201) on Debian x86_64.

Could you please try if the same happens in Safe Mode (Help → Restart with Addons Disabled)?
And with a clean profile? (see here how to create one: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_Manager)

Cheers,
Francesca

Rayyanrashadhodges,

Are you still able to reproduce this in the latest version ? I cannot reproduce this in the current version.
Have you tried with a fresh install ? Thanks again!

Your user-agent says you use Chrome, not Firefox. Are you reporting a bug in Chrome, or just using Chrome because Firefox isn't working for you?

What is the URL of the page you actually go to? Go to the address bar (Ctrl-L will get you there) then select and copy the whole thing and then paste it into this bug.

Symptoms like this are typical of some malware. You might have a bad extension ("add-on"). If that's the case running in safe-mode or with a fresh profile (see comment 1) will temporarily "fix" it. If that does NOT fix it then the malware is more embedded on your system and is hijacking your network connections. You will need more intensive help to fix this.
