my laptop wont load firefox, it keeps saying my proxy server could not connect firefox. Why is this, it was working earlier.

Every time i try to open firefox my laptop tells me "The proxy server is refusing connection". This has never happened before. I updated my norton antivirus and firefox has not worked since.

Re: my laptop wont load firefox, it keeps saying my proxy server could not connect firefox. Why is this, it was working earlier.

In Firefox 3.6.4 and later the default connection settings have been changed to "Use the system proxy settings".
You can find the connection settings in Tools > Options > Advanced : Network : Connection
If you do not need to use a proxy to connect to internet then select "No Proxy"

See "Firefox connection settings":
