I'm getting the following message:

"The proxy server is refusing connections"

I did go into the Tool/Options/Network/Setting and change it, but everytime I restart Firefox, it doesn't remember the settings.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

I tried that, but I have no clue as to what I'm looking at.

I can't tell if there is or isn't a conflict.

Does it work if you start Firefox in Save mode?

In Firefox 4+ you can use one of these to start in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode:

  • Help > Restart with Add-ons Disabled
  • Hold down the Shift key while double clicking the Firefox desktop shortcut (Windows)

Let me repeat:

I can't tell if there is or isn't a conflict.

I need a HUMAN to walk me through this.

Give me a phone number so someone can.

I've tried the live support, but no one knows how to read a clock there. It says it closes at 4PM PST, but it's 4:46 EST

No, the network setting DO NOT change in Safe Mode.

Are you kidding me? That's not help.

I'll say it again, I can't tell if there is or isn't a conflict.

Is there a reason I can't get an answer to the above???
