I get this error message:

The proxy server is refusing connections

Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections.

   Check the proxy settings to make sure that they are correct.
   Contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working.

What do I have to do to fix this?

Do you intend to use a proxy or VPN ?

You can check the connection settings.

  • Options/Preferences -> General -> Network: Connection -> Settings

If you do not need to use a proxy to connect to internet then try to select "No Proxy" if "Use the system proxy settings" or one of the others do not work properly.

See "Firefox connection settings":
