Hi: I've googled for about 2 days and then sent my question to fedoraforum.org but didn't get any useful responses atleast yet. Then I started looking on the mozilla forum and it seems that this problem has been encountered before but I'm not knowledgeable enough to understand how to fix it. I went through both documents that explain about ipv6, dns prefetching, clearing you cache etc but still no luck. Here's my problem, but like I said, I think other people have had it also.
I am learning how to write code to access data from github by using the github api. It is actually an on line course assignment where the problem popped up. no pun intended. I am using linux fedora 19. At the github application site, you need to specify a callback url so that github has some place to send the data that you retrieved back to you.
( this is atleast how I understand it. this is all quite new to me. my understanding could be incorrect ).
So, then I googled and found a note where someone recommended using http://localhost:1410 as the callback url
in the github api where you get the secret key etc. So, I use http://localhost:1410 as suggested. But that person might
use windows or internet explorer so I don't know if using localhost:1410 is correct. Maybe I should be using something else ?
To make a long story shorter, when I use that localhost:1410, I get the error that mozilla cannot access that site.
Like I said, I've seen other threads on mozilla support with similar issues but the solutions weren't clear to me.
I am not using a proxy so my connection settings are basically blank except that No Proxy is filled in.
My other thought was that maybe I'm supposed to type 1410 somewhere on the connection settings page.
It also says No Proxy for localhost.127.0.0.1 but it's very light so I don't think that's actually enabled.
If anyone would be willing to help, I'd really appreciate it. I've spent the better part of two days and my knowledge is limited so I'm pretty stuck. Also, if you need any more information or need me to do anything, I'll gladly be as helpful as I can possibly be. Thank you very much. The fact that mozilla has this support forum is very kool. I never knew about it until today. Thanks again.
