I can't access my hotmail account among some other websites since upgrading to 3.6.8 on my macbook. I get the following message: "The proxy server is refusing connections. Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections. Check the proxy settings to make sure that they are correct. Contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working." I can't even find the proxy settings anymore.

I'm using a MiniMac with O.S. 10.4.11. It's an old 1.42 Ghz. pre-Intel chip. I'm using Firefox 3.6.6, and when I attempt to go to Kijiji, for no reason whatsoever, Google analytics shows up at the bottom left of my screen, and the load bar shows about 3/4's of being done. And that's where it freezes COMPLETELY. The existing blue line on the load bar doesn't even have the auger turning, indicating that it's working. Please fix, but whatever you do, don't tell me I've got a worm, or something. I'm sure it's just Google's spyware screwing up.

Upgrading Firefox, i mistakenly moved my old profile to my desktop to save it in case something went wrong. When trying to put it back where i stole it from, i forgot which file it came from and went to where i thought it came from and found a new profile existed there. Error message says two browsers can not be open at the same time. Can't turn off the FFX browser because it won't display as open. i have trashed everything labled Firefox using apple command find and then attempted to install a new downloaded copy. Still gets same message as if the newly downloaded copy is already running.

Firefox (& Safari) redirect both Google searches and web addresses to an undesirable Chinese website (www.5542.com). They have both become very slow and often give a 'Server not found' message when accessing various sites. I believe it could be malware(?) or similar. I've tried to block the unwanted site but it keeps on appearing. I'm running two macs and it's happening on both of them. I'm not especially experienced with web jargon etc. so please speak slowly with any instructions! Thanks for your help. Andy
