computer not working at all.

I was using my desktop . Then I was gone for a day. When I came back my desktop said, unable to connect to proxy server. I couldn't figure out what that meant. I deleted my Mozilla thinking that's what I needed to do to reinstall it. So now I can't get it to do anything except keep saying unable to connect to proxy server. Please help me, I can't afford to call someone to come out to fix it. Thanks

Sorry.I just read that you had desktop but firefox system detail showed me you were using SAMSUNG SCH-I545 4G.In that case try right clicking the taskbar network icon from start and click "troubleshoot" and repost if any problem found.

It is possible that your firewall or other security software blocks or restricts Firefox or the plugin-container process without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program.

Remove all rules for Firefox and the plugin-container from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full, unrestricted, access to install for Firefox and the plugin-container process and the updater process.

See:


Boot the computer in Windows Safe Mode with network support (press F8 on the boot screen) to check for issues caused by your security software.
