Firefox refuses to go online

I have used Firefox for over 2 years but Firefox all of a sudden refuses to go online. It comes up with the error: 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.

The strange thing is that I connect directly through my ADSL Modem to the Web, not trough a proxy. Any ideas? I am now forced to use IE8 again, which has no such problems.
