    In this good article antivirus conflicts are not taken into due consideration; after migrating from IE 6, I had Error 102 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED) and couldn't get to a solution by following most common hints. I didn't had confirmed my subscription to Norton and I am using Avast; I was aware of conflicts, and disabled Norton without uninstalling it, believing it was enough, but only once I thoroughly uninstalled Norton, Firefox (and other browsers I was trying, all with the same problem) started working perfectly.

    Hi vottrioolivati. This article is about errors while logging in to websites (i.e. when you need to enter a username and a password), not loading websites. If you have comments about error 102, make them in the discussion forum of Websites don't load - troubleshoot and fix error messages.
