firefox browser wont open the message I get is "unable to establish connection to server" even though I am online
I was in the middle of a firfox browser sessions, but had to close it down as computer was playing up with other pograms I had open. When rebooted the system, I could not use the firefox browser and had the following message:
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at search.findeer.com.
The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
moments. If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection. If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.'
i then uninstalled it restarted my computer reinstalled it restarted my computer and had the same message come up when trying to open it.
A possible cause is security software (firewall) that blocks or restricts Firefox or the plugin-container process without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program.
Remove all rules for Firefox from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full unrestricted access to internet for Firefox and the plugin-container process and the updater process.
