Please explain the problem in detail. What happens? What are the exact error message(s) ?


Some problems occur when your Internet security program was set to trust the previous version of Firefox, but no longer recognizes your updated version as trusted. Now how to fix the problem: To allow Firefox to connect to the Internet again;

  • Make sure your Internet security software is up-to-date (i.e. you are running the latest version).
  • Remove Firefox from your program's list of trusted or recognized programs. For detailed instructions, see

Configure firewalls so that Firefox can access the Internet. {web link}

It started when firefox asked to be my default browser. I clicked yes and then settings came up and everything stopped. I can not open any of the shortcuts and can not even open the start menu. The last time something like this happened I needed to sign on to firefox. Now I can't see how to do that.

. . . . settings came up and everything stopped

Is that a Windows or Firefox setting?


Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?


Start your Computer in safe mode with network support. Then start Firefox. Try Secure websites. Is the problem still there?
