Why can't I access the Internet since Firefox updated?
When I went to open Firefox on may laptop I got a box that said - Firefox will start in a minute after it finishes updating (not verbatim). After it opened I can't access the Internet through it or use any of my quick links. It just keeps refreshing to the Firefox homepage.

I tried the steps listed there and added Firefox as an exception to my firewall but still nothing. For the android ? - I probably miss hit the right spot on my phone when selecting since that's the only working Internet source I have right now. I've never had issues before so its weird. My computer says its connected to the Internet & I have working wifi on my phone.
Okay, lets start over. What is the system you are running? Win, Mac, Linux . . . . . . Version What Firefox? Are other programs accessing the web?

- Remove Firefox from your program's list of trusted or recognized programs. For detailed instructions, see
When I went to restart my computer after fixing the firewall issue I saw there was a windows update so I ran that and now Firefox will work again. Weird! Thanks for the suggestions.
Glad to help.
