Working with firefox 28 on WinXP. https sites load well, but http sites do NOT load at all. Same happens on other browsers
I've tried uninstalling, downgrading, upgrading Firefox (from version 17 to Aurora) and still the problem persists! I've shut down firewall, performed malware checks, cleared cache, history and cookies, started in safemode, and still nothing!! 'https' sites (such as Facebook) load perfectly well, as opposed to 'http' sites that do NOT load at all, getting the following error:
«Firefox could not establish connection to server in www.example.com. - The website may be temporarily unavailable or busy. Try again in a few moments. - If you can't load any page please check your computer Internet connection. - If your computer or Internet connection is protected by firewall or proxy, verify if «browser» has permission to connect to the Web.»
I have the same version of firefox running on win7 on other computer and it works normally!
Some 'http' sites will load if I insert an 's' after 'http' making them apparently 'https'.
Help please!! Thank you!!
Well, the only problem is that it is on norwegian because i'm from norway, but if you maybe can translate it and are able to find out which error message it is.Read this answer in context 👍 0

Try setting your Proxy connection to No Proxy.
Go to the menu click Options > Advanced > Network > Settings
Select "Use System Proxy Settings" or if that's checked, try switching it to "No Proxy" to see if that makes a differencce
Boot the computer in Windows Safe mode with network support (press F8 on the boot screen) as a test to see if that helps.
Solved it! It was an old Firewall (not windows') installed that was blocking http traffic. Just uninstalled and it works normally! Thanks to everybody who bothered to reply!
Yeah, when i tries to go on a site that starts with http now, i get a error message, it worked fine before today, but it must have happened some scramble-
Wait what do you said you did?
But that's exactly what problem i has
What error message do you get?
Can you attach a screenshot?
Use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot.

well here it is, but are you able to...., but how big can you see this image, or are it just to load it down to paint, well here it is, and as i said, you must translate it, or you must tell me if it are possible and how i change the language, because this was downloaded on norwegian.well, as i said here is it!
The thing is that i can get on sites that start with https but not with http right now
hmm, but i get on some sites there it is a grey warning triangle, but warns me to search on some things because it will be sended over an uncrypted connection.
This happens in all browsers
