Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections, happens only with Google. The no proxy is checked, have scanned and rescanned.

I've tried all the suggestions from previous postings about this issue. None of them have helped. It is only google. I cannot do a google search, my google + won't load.

Re: Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections, happens only with Google. The no proxy is checked, have scanned and rescanned.

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.


Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.

Thank you. This seems to have fixed the issue. A bit of a pain to get my add-ons going again, but definitely worth it in the frustration realm. Now, if I could just get the pin app tabs working when my browser is re-opened I'd be thrilled. Thank you again!!
