How do I reset Proxy settings?

Posted

A few minutes ago I got a warning from Windows Defender saying that I had a virus. I had removed the virus and when I went on Mozilla FireFox and it said that it couldn't connect because it was either the proxy settings or my Internet Connection. I had just reset my proxy settings on Internet Explorer and it was restored on Mozilla Firefox. I just want to know if there is any way to fix these on Mozilla Firefox. This had happened before because I remember resetting my 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
