The proxy server is refusing connections on a user name on my desktop. How do I repair that?
My computer has 2 users on here. Under my username when I try to go on the internet I get a pop up that say "The proxy server is refusing connections. Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connection." I have tried going into my control panel under internet options and changing my LAN setting to automatic and that did not work. I also tried to place where is searches for the proxy and I am unable to connect on y user. I can switch users and go under my daughters and then I am able to connecto to the internet.

If you have problems with updating or with the permissions then easiest is to download the full version and trash the currently installed version to do a clean install of the new version.
Download a new copy of the Firefox program and save the DMG file to the desktop
- Firefox 5.0.x: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html
- Trash the current Firefox application to do a clean (re-)install
- Install the new version that you have downloaded
