Comment (by cypherpunks):

 I have found the problem.  It is the Demdex.net rule, the certificates for
 that domain are not a match for the urls used on foxnews, thus Firefox is
 throwing a 'CommonName mismatch' error and stopping content from loading.
 Disabling the Demdex rule in https everywhere solves the issue.
