Hi, I need more info about this issue : have you tried to open a website with another browser? What's the status of your Internet access?

What's your computer system and Firefox version?

Some problems occur when your Internet security program was set to trust the previous version of Firefox, but no longer recognizes your updated version as trusted. Now how to fix the problem: To allow Firefox to connect to the Internet again;

  • Remove Firefox from your program's list of trusted or recognized programs. For detailed instructions, see
