Try turing the Poxy off, someone sugguest this and it worked for me. Open firefox to the page where you get that message about refusing to connect. go to TOOLS then OPTIONS then ADVANCED then NETWORK tab then SETTINGS tab and select the options NO PROXY click OK and OK again. Now close firefox and reopen it and see if it works.
