Question about Mozilla Firefox

1 Answer

Every time I try to access internet explorer, it closes.

Every time I try to access internet explorer, it says it is connecting, but then it immediately closes. My biggest problem is my e-mail. Every time I try to connect to a link in my e-mail, it tries to access the link with the internet explorer, and then it crashes. Can you help me with this?

Stop using Internet Explorer. It is not a safe or reliable browser to begin with. See this article.

Here are the steps:

  1. 1. Download and install Firefox. It is an amazing browser and is surprisingly light weight and safe. Download here.
  2. When Firefox asks you if you want it to be your default browser select "YES".
  3. Delete the shortcuts on your desktop to Internet Explorer and start using FireFox!
You are done!

Today I can't access Yahoo at all, why?


Hi. If you cannot access Yahoo but can access other websites, what I can suggest for you to do is to reset your browser settings. Here are the instructions depending on you browser on how to reset settings.

INTERNET EXPLORER Version 7 & 8:
Click TOOLS > Internet Options > Go to Advanced Tab > Click RESET button > Reset > Wait for it to finish loading, then it's going to ask you to restart your browser. Just close out all the Internet Explorer Browser that you have open. Open a new Internet Explorer then try accessing Yahoo again.

INTERNET EXPLORER Version 9
Click the gear icon on the upper right part of the internet explorer window > Internet Options > Go to Advanced Tab > Click RESET button > Reset > Wait for it to finish loading, then it's going to ask you to restart your browser. Just close out all the Internet Explorer Browser that you have open. Open a new Internet Explorer then try accessing Yahoo again.

MOZILLA FIREFOX Version 3.0 & 3.6
Click on TOOLS > Clear Recent History > On the dropdown box, choose EVERYTHING. > Clear now > Wait for it to finish loading, then it's going to ask you to restart your browser. Just close out all the Mozilla Firefox Browser that you have open. Open a new one then try accessing Yahoo again.

MOZILLA FIREFOX 4.0
Click on FIREFOX on the upper left part of the mozilla firefox window > HISTORY > On the dropdown box, choose EVERYTHING >Click Clear now > Wait for it to finish loading, then it's going to ask you to restart your browser. Just close out all the Mozilla Firefox Browser that you have open. Open a new one then try accessing Yahoo again.

If you cannot connect other websites besides Yahoo, contact your internet provider.

Hope this helps! Have a great day.

Can't access the internet through internet explorer


Hi,

There can be number of reasons but one thing you can check is proxy on the browser.

To check it click on start >> control panel >> internet options >> connections >> LAN settings >> uncheck all the boxes and click ok >> open a new browser and check if it is working.

Note : It will only work if you are able to go online using orther browsers



Good Luck

When using my D-Link-655 router, I can't access some Web sites, but I can access others. This applies to all computers on my network. I can, for example, access my work (company internal) websites and use...


Have you isolated the problem by directly plugging your computer directly to your modem, bypassing your router? If you have done this but still cannot browse some websites, then this is a DNS problem with your Internet Provider. Try using Open DNS, 208.67.220.220 as Primary and 208.67.222.222 as secondary. Then try to browse again. But if you have plugged directly to the modem and was able to access those websites, then there is a restriction on your router and you may need to press and hold the reset button to reset it back to factory defaults.

It wont let me sign up. It just loads and caput! doesnt do a thing. Just kind of loads nothing. Does nothing makes me mad.please help me thankyou


First, try to access the web site in a different computer that is connected to a different network. There are times that the site itself has the problem and not the computer.

If you can access the site in a different computer, then the problem has something to do with the internet browser that you are using. Try to use different internet browsers (i.e. Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera). OR, you may optimize your browser. Here's how:

* For Internet Explorer:

1. Run Internet Explorer and click on 'Tools' menu.
2. Go to Internet Options and locate the Browsing History section.
3. Click the 'Delete' button and delete the Temporary Internet Files, Cookies and History.
4. Close the Internet Explorer and re-open it.
5. Access your e-mail.

* For Mozilla Firefox:

1. Run Firefox and hit 'Tools' menu.
2. Go to 'Clear Recent History' and click the drop-down arrow for 'Time range to clear'.
3. Select 'Everything' and then click the line beside details.
4. Check browsing & download history, form & search history, cookies, cache.
5. Click "Clear Now" button.
6. Close and re-open Firefox.
7. Access your e-mail.

* For Safari:

1. Open the Safari.
2. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) and select "Empty Cache".
3. When asked "Are you sure you want to empty the cache?", click "Empty".
4. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) then go to "Preferences".
5. From the security dialog box, click "Bookmarks".
6. Click on "Show Cookies" button and then hit "Remove All" button.
7. Select "Done".
8. Access your email.

Thank you and good luck!
