I was running BitDefender at the same time and uninstalling it fixed these issues.
I just started using Webroot on two of my PCs and I started to see strange things right away, most of them attributed to the Identity Protection aspect, and I'm afraid this is going to continue further.
The sign of a good antivirus program is to not realize it's there, and I understand how difficult this can be, but I also know it's possible by working with popular programs to stabalize features, and I would say Chrome and Firefox fall into those categories.
Here are my two issues:
- Firefox downloads would instantly stop when loading a new page in private browsing
- Chrome would not connect to any pages until ID Protection was set to "allow".

I was searching and there seems to be a conflict with Bitdefender and WSA together so that could be your issue as well? http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=353920&highlight=Bitdefender notice post 12!!
