    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.

Internet access


don't use IExplorer, use firefox or chrome. You do not need to know any proxy. Stay out of Lan settings. Make sure your ethernet cord is plugged in tight on both ends. That cord should show a green light when you look directly into the ethernet jack on your computer. You should be good to go then and connect to the internet.

If you do not know how to deselect some of the factory defaults before connecting it to the internet, you will be setting yourself up to get hijacked or worse. Have someone who knows a bit about PCs to help you.

Firefox speed up


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 wait.

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

Computer says server not found when trying to download leapfrog application


I tried the webpage you listed, and it transferred me to another page. You may want to try this page.

http://www.leapfrog.com/en/pages/support/product_pages/leaptop.html

I tried to download the PC version and it came up fine.

Can you download anything else from other websites with those settings on your computer?

Firefox error for a week (msg is below). IE works but how can I firefox? Unable to connect Firefox can't establish a connection...


Hi

You don't say which operating system you are using.

It sounds as if something has affected, changed or corrupted your Firefox Browser settings.

Uninstall firefox and all its components from add or remove programs > restart computer > use IE to log on and download and install the latest version of Firefox, watching out for any firewall permission boxes > test firefox and set it as the Default Browser, if you want to.

start > Control Panel > (Add or Remove) Programs > (uninstall a program) > highlight Firefox > Remove all its components > restart computer.

Remeber to regularly downlad and install upgrades, updates andsecurity patches for both browsers to protect from malware.

Download and install good Spyware and Browser protection software such as, for added protection:

Malwarebytes (www.malwarebytes.org)

SuperAntispyware (www.superantispyware.com)

I hope this helps.

Must restart computer to open the internet again


Seems like you need to configure the Power Saving settings so your Network card does not go to sleep. Alternatively, set the hard disk to "Never Sleep", so your drivers don't go offline.
