After a couple of minutes I get a "Secure connection Failed" screen.

It worked back in February and since then I have not changed anything.

Fred I have been in touch with Dish people and they say it is my ISP. Firefox gives me other things to try. Why am I having problems now when this was never a problem before???????????????? I will contact my ISP this morning.

Fred I cannot find where to unflag my question as UNSOLVED. I cannot find a link "to the right". This forum is very confusing to me. MY PROBLEM IS NOT SOLVED FOR EVERYONE OUT THERE.

Fred......FYI My ISP says everything is good on their end. I tried using my cell phone and guess what....I can access my Dish account. This leads me to believe this a Firefox problem. So when will the BIG GUYS fix my problem?

Since it is happening in more than one browser, I am thinking that it is an issue with the computer's cache. In order to flush the locale cache you may need to run this command in the cmd.exe prompt.

/flushdns

clearing the cache as suggested did not work. I did that before and it did not work then. Thanks to everyone that tried to solve this problem, but nothing has worked. I am giving up. Since I am a seasoned senior I have spent more than enough of my time on this problem. Life is short and so I don't need to see my dish account on my PC or Laptop. Thanks again
