Why is it the only web site that will not load on my PC is allears.net, using Firefox?

Posted

allears.net, will not load.. Every other web page does without a problem.. I have trouble with it before and it came back on its own.. It is doing it again.. I followed suggestion you gave, using ctrl, alt and H, to bring up history for that site and to delete them.. Well allears.net came up once and now not at all, even with repeating the suggestion.. can find no blocking on my firewall, I am stumped.. Please help, cause I really like that site..

I had no problem. What happens when you try? http://www.ehow.com/how_11385212_troubleshoot-reset-connection-firefox.html https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/server-not-found-connection-problem https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/secure-connection-failed-error-message https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/connection-untrusted-error-message '''http://kb.mozillazine.org/Error_loading_websites''' '''This Connection is Untrusted''' is sometimes caused because the computer system clock is wrong. Check the time / date / time zone settings.

Question owner

Same problem as before. allears.net, would sign on, now it will not.. All of a sudden.. Tried on AOL and would not either.. Both times it stated they had timed out.. I am confused, especially since it had happened before and came back on it's own.. Where else can I look??? Am not a computer geek, but can follow direction pretty well...

If there is still a problem, Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} While you are in safe mode;

Under Advanced, Select General. Look for and turn off Use Hardware Acceleration.

Poke around safe web sites. Are there any problems?

Then restart.

Boot the computer in Windows Safe Mode with network support (press F8 on the boot screen) to see if that helps.

Can you load the website via a site like Google Translate with a random not English source language?

You can remove all data stored in Firefox from a specific domain via "Forget About This Site" in the right-click context menu of an history entry ("History > Show All History" or "View > Sidebar > History") or via the about:permissions page.

Using "Forget About This Site" will remove all data stored in Firefox from that domain like bookmarks, cookies, passwords, cache, history, and exceptions, so be cautious. If you have a password or other data from that domain that you do not want to lose then make sure to backup this data or make a note.

You can't recover from this 'forget' unless you have a backup of the involved files.

If you revisit a 'forgotten' website then data from that website will be saved once again.


Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problem.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over problems.
