Proxy server is refusing connections
Returning from a four day vacation I tried to load facebook but the error message that the proxy server is refusing connections popped up. I tried to access the help but was unable. I signed off my log on and logged on to my husband and everything works perfect. I accessed help and read other replies and fixes to the same problem. I started in safe mode with no luck, I disabled all add-ons with no luck. I am stumped. I really don't even know what a proxy server is..... please help.

Check the connection settings.
- Tools > Options > Advanced > Network : Connection > Settings
If you do not need to use a proxy to connect to internet then try to select "No Proxy" if "Use the system proxy settings" or one of the others do not work properly.
See "Firefox connection settings":
I tried all of the above yesterday with no luck. What I do not understand is why I can sign on with my husbands log on but not mine.
I fixed it myself!!! I uninstalled Spybot and the computer now works!!!
