    That means your are not connecting to the internet. Your connection to your ISP (internet service provider) is not working.



    Did this just start happening?

    Is this a new laptop?

    Do you have a wireless router or are you using a wire to connect?



    How is this computer that you typed to us here connected to the internet ?

You need more detail, is it a laptop or desktop, if you have windows the nit must have worked at some point to get fire-fox, the message you are seeing is one that means the web server hosting that web-page could not be contacted usually meaning your internet connection is down, or not connected or a bad url or a site that is no longer hosted. however it looks like its happening as soon as you open Fire-fox based on the url you mention, meaning that its you internet connection, are you connected wirelessly or via ethernet, ethernet looks a lot like a phone cord but thicker and the end looks like an oversized phone cord connector, the cord can be just about any color, if you are wired then make sure the cable is tight at both ends, try restating the pc if its wireless you should have some software that allows you to choose which network you are connecting to, then you will need to use it to select your wireless network.

First check your network adapter settings )make sure that it is set to 'obtain ip address automatically'). In network and sharing center, make sure that you are not using a public network. Also, in control panel, internet options on the connections tab, make sure that use a proxy server is not checked in LAN Settings.

Firefox Tweaks - Speed up the firefox


Yes, firefox is already pretty damn fast but did you know that you can tweak it and improve the speed even more?

That's the beauty of this program being open source.
Here's what you do:
In the URL bar, type “about:config” and press enter. This will bring up the configuration “menu” where you can change the parameters of Firefox.

Note that these are what I’ve found to REALLY speed up my Firefox significantly - and these settings seem to be common among everybody else as well. But these settings are optimized for broadband connections - I mean with as much concurrent requests we’re going to open up with pipelining… lol… you’d better have a big connection.

Double Click on the following settins and put in the numbers below - for the true / false booleans - they’ll change when you double click.

Code:
browser.tabs.showSingleWindowModePrefs – true
network.http.max-connections – 48
network.http.max-connections-per-server – 16
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy – 8
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server – 4
network.http.pipelining – true
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests – 100
network.http.proxy.pipelining – true
network.http.request.timeout – 300


One more thing… Right-click somewhere on that screen
and add a NEW -> Integer.
Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set
its value to “0”. This value is the amount of time
the browser waits before it acts on information it
receives. Since you’re broadband - it shouldn’t have to
wfsait.

Now you should notice you’re loading pages MUCH
faster now!

While accessing mail i am getting message (error code:ssl_error_rx_record_too_long_


Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long Your SSL website may fail to load and display the error

Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long

This usually means the implementation of SSL on your server is not correct. The error is usually caused by a server side problem which the server administrator will need to investigate.

Below are some things we recommend trying.

- Ensure that port 443 is open and enabled on your server. This is the standard port for https communications.

- If SSL is using a non-standard port then FireFox 3 can sometimes give this error. Ensure SSL is running on port 443.

- If using Apache2 check that you are using port 443 for SSL. This can be done by setting the ports.conf file as follows

— clip —
Listen 80
Listen 443 https
— clip —

- Make sure you do not have more than one SSL certificate sharing the same IP. Please ensure that all SSL certificates utilise their own dedicated IP.

- If using Apache2 check your vhost config. Some users have reported changing <VirtualHost> to _default_ resolved the error.

Firefox refuses connection with ultrasurf's proxy


Well Ultrasurf obviously does not want to work with your internet connection (like mine)

For now you need to remove Ultrasurf. Go to Tools>>Add-ons>>UltraSurf Firefox Tool>>Disable OR Uninstall.

That should at least get your internet working...

As for a working proxy, try using a "Web based proxy"

Google it.

Thanks,
Ted

Proxy Server Refused Connection Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections. ...


If you're using Firefox, click on "Tools" at the top of the page, click on "Options" which is at the bottom of the list that comes up, then click Advanced, choose Network from the four tabs below that. There should be a sentence "configure how Firefox connects to the Internet". Click on the button next to it that says "settings". and make sure that "Auto-detect proxy settings for this network" has a dot in the little circle. If not, click on it and click on OK.
You may have to shut down Firefox (your internet browser programme), then try getting in again. Should have sorted it.
