My Firefox has let me down since I have last updated it. Thing is it was working perfectly before I decided to update it to have more add-ins. And now nothing works, it tells me that I have to download the latest version of Firefox but I have it already. I hate using IE itâ€(TM)s slow and I cant download properly with that. Thank you for your help.
Firefox connection settingsIf you connect to the Internet through a proxy server that is having connection problems, you will not be able to load websites. To check your Firefox proxy settings:
1.At the top of the Firefox windowOn the menu bar, click on the ToolsFirefoxEdit menu, and select Options...Preferences....
2.Select the Advanced panel.
3.Select the Network tab.
4.In the Connection section, click Settings....
5.Change your proxy settings:
?If you don't connect to the Internet through a proxy (or don't know whether you connect through a proxy), select No Proxy.
?If you connect to the Internet through a proxy, compare Firefox's settings to another browser's (Such as Internet Explorer. See Microsoft's guide to proxy settings) (Such as Safari. See Apple's guide to proxy settings).
6.Close the Connection Settings window.
7.Click OK to close the Options windowClick Close to close the Preferences windowClose the Preferences window
I did all the things they told me to do and nothing worked. I uninstalled Norton security and it finally worked. Even when you turn off the firewall in Norton there is still a firewall working in the background. So I just completely uninstalled it and now everything works. AVG is free and better anyway. This has been going on for months and finally got everything to work by doing that. Maybe the same problem if you have McAfee.
The same thing happened to me tonight, but this worked for me :
http://support.mozilla.com/... I am not computer savvy by a long shot, had two IE browsers open so I could keep checking each step. Hopefully the above link will take you to the right spot and you right click on the taskbar (on a blank spot) and follow the directions.
Good luck, hope you have the same success I did!
hi.. I am having the same issue as you guys are I updated to the newest version and then it won't establish a connection anymore.. I unistalled the program and tried re-installing it and it still didn't work.. Also I tied downloading and installing an older version of it that I had before this one and it still won't establish a connection.. Wondering if it has anything to do with windows vista? Which doesn't make sense because the version before 3.0 worked just fine on my computer.. If anyone could help me I would be most appreciated..
I think I fixed the problem. The problem is the new version of Mozilla after the recent update. I uninstalled the new version of Mozilla firefox. I also deleted all the Mozilla program files found on the C drive. Then I downloaded and installed an older version of Mozilla Firefox....3.4. Just did a Google search for an older option. Now everything works perfectly. My bookmarks were all automatically transferred. I don't know why the new updated Mozilla wouldn't work. Seems like Mozilla should work out those bugs or provide a warning before we accept an update.
what version of firefox are you using?
How does it not work? is it not starting or, giving error messages or, not connecting to the internet or something else?
Try uninstalling firefox and download and install the latest firefox.
My computer is not a "BESTBUY" special, it is XP made by DK SYSTEMS in Santa Rosa, Ca.
So, they didn't make the "C" drive the main hard drive (that was called the "I" drive. The CF slot was the "C" drive.
Now, if you want to load flash (http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/alternates/) you need to put a card in what ever is the "C" drive (right click start, click explore, find your "c" drive.
What is confusing is the error message. It tells you to free up memory vs "your drive is empty, please insert card"
Bless the coder's but the lack of common sense is, well, ya know!
I had the problem ever since I loaded firefox. My videos will not play. I found a solution and it has work.
Download the flash player and pick your OS and browser type ( Firefox ). Save the download on your desktop and then install. It should work.
I have the same problem, on a brand new laptop, after 2 weeks, right after I updated mozilla, it stopped working. I have chrome too, that one doesn't work either, only IE, but I hate IE. Vista sucks. I tried uninstalling the last updates for vista and still nothing. I keep getting the error message, that mozilla couldn't connect to the server, although other programs are fine, e.g. IE or steam work.
I have this same issue as you guys are with my Vista system. My Firefox won't establish a connection anymore, Chrome and Safari browsers don't work neither, only IE works. I tried downloading and installing an older version of mozilla that I had before this one and it still won't establish a connection. I think one of Microsoft update did it... my guess is they don't want us to use other browsers.
If anyone knows how to get around it please post.
