Network error - tcp error - a communication error occurreed

Over the past few days, on logging in to www.imgsrc.ru, the following error message appears:

Network Error (tcp_error)

A communication error occurred: "" The Web Server may be down, too busy, or experiencing other problems preventing it from responding to requests. You may wish to try again at a later time.

For assistance, contact your network support team.

I contacted the website managers, and they say there is no problem at their end, and suggested I contact you.

Does this occur on another browser? Also, please see Websites don't load - troubleshoot and fix error messages

Try to clear the cache and the cookies from sites that cause problems.

"Clear the Cache":

  • Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"

"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:

  • Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

I clear caches and cookies on a regular basis. Did the same again as you suggested, but with no results in using the site in question. For the last 12+ hours Firefox has refused to make the connection at all. How do I override the red warning in order to gain access? There doesn't seem to be any easy way to do it

I installed Opera just to see if that would work - it didn't!

If you receive the same error on another browser then it is not Firefox's fault. It may be due to a firewall of yours. Please make sure your firewall isn't blocking.

Re: Network error - tcp error - a communication error occurreed

Firefox is clearly being efficient (no bad thing!) but it's always allowed me access in the past, simply by being able to choose "go there anyway". Now I don't even get that option. And I've explored the Firefox panels to find a way of cancelling their blockage, but can't find a way. How do I do it, please?
