Would someone please tell me why Firefox keeps telling me that Flickr.com doesn't exist? This has been a continuing problem with FF for some time now. It's the reason I'm not using FF after years and years of being a happy FF user.

Posted

WinXP Service pack 3

FF will get me to the Google search site, but won't recognise the Flickr site.

Do a malware check with some malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.
You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.
Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.
