Troubleshoot when computer won't connect

Posted

I'm sending this from my phone because my computer won't connect. I have version 38.0.6 and that it says Funnelcake June 2015, under that is says mozilla37-1.0 It says up to date. Everytime I try to type in an address it says Unable to connect. Can't establish a connection. It won't let me report or troubleshoot because it can't connect to mozilla.org. It's been like this for 30 min. I've tried the refresh, restarting without add ons. Nothing. Help!
