Re: Suddenly Mozilla Firefox Wont Connect To Internet - Why?e

Firefox->Tools->options->General->Connection settings perhaps?

Compare them with your internet explorer settings.
IE->Tools->Internet options->Connections->Lan Settings->Proxy server.

Hi
As a non user of G gle.I wouldn't know how easy it is. Too much crap comes with it.

I'm sure there was a discussion on this one a few years ago.

One of the conclusions was that Maxthon was just a skin for IE.

So Maxthon inherits all the bugs & security flaws of IE.
You might ask for Mr B's opinion of Maxthon

Mate. That's very interesting. I never thought of that. I have been testing Maxthon and about to give FF the one finger salute. Thank you for the big tip. I would not use IE if they paid me.
(My opinion on this one is not humble either)

May be a bit obvious... but is it behind your firewall?

Sorry newtoburners, to have hijacked your thread.
yes i did like Firefox...until someone shared their great experience with Opera with me...
then when i started having problems logging into cdfreaks with FF....i gave Opera a whirl..and left Firefox in the back.....I like the options you have with Opera...ie...you can let your brower on anypage appear to be Internet Explorer.......then no more funny looking pages..or waiting for pages to load ...

Re: Suddenly Mozilla Firefox Wont Connect To Internet - Why?e

Ahhh ... and in my experience, several times now .... that's the other great thing about firefox ..... when they release the new version, the old versions that have been installed seem a little sluggish, or problems crop up .....


Is firefox traffic being monitored or something?

Thank you SS. I am now testing Opera and so far so good. I like the feature that once your password is saved it auto log you in. FF saved only some PWs. not all of them. (notice I'm already talking in past tense).
Thank you for the tip. I highly regard your opinions.

I am also having trouble connecting to the internet using firefox. It worked fine until about 2 days ago, now I just get a message saying "unable to connect". IE still works, and Safari works. I tried uninstalling Mozilla, then re-installing the newest version, 4.0.1., but still no luck. I checked the firewalls like was suggested in an earlier post, but firefox wasn't listed. I also made sure that "working offline" was not selected, which it wasn't. Why the sudden problems when nothing has been changed?

I am not very technically savvy, but I can usually muddle through something and eventually find my way. By the way, we have two other laptops and they both connect to the internet just fine using Mozilla. I would appreciate any help from people that are a lot more knowledgeable on the subject than I am.

Thanks
