Firefox says "proxy server is refusing connections" after Mozilla update

On 1 July Mozilla generated an automatic update. Immediately after, I received the message"proxy server is refusing connections." I am unable to get online on my computer. How can this problem be solved?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== 1 July 2010 after a Mozilla update

Since I can't access the net, I can't use the TOOLS etc. path to correct the problem. Can you give me some more help or advice?

As long as you can open Firefox, you should be able to access the Tools menu. Can you not open Firefox at all?

This is a sign of MALEWARE. Go into safemode with networking. Then TOOLS, then Network, then Proxy Setting and choose to turn them off. I just did this for a cleint and then ran MALWAREBYTES.
