When I start Firefox I receive this error message: The proxy server is refusing connections. How can I fix this.

Posted

My internet connection is through WiFi and my other computer can access the internet with Firefox. I am currently using Flock as the only browser that will work on my computer. Help!!! I have worked with my internet provider and my internet connection is working properly. I have been using Firefox on this computer with this Wifi connection on this internet provider since May 2010 with no problems.

Did you check the connection settings?

See "Firefox connection settings" in Server Not Found - Troubleshoot connection problems

You can find the connection settings in "Tools > Options > Advanced : Network : Connection" If you do not need to use a proxy to connect to internet then select No Proxy
