Hello there:
Normally if you have this message that pops up what it is trying to tell you is that youstill have a program that is running off the internet
so look on your taskbar and see if you have any applications that is using the inter net like desktop weather or messenger or things like this if so simply right click on the application and select exit program or it may also have the quit application
You can also do a end task to see what is all running and shut things down from there too ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Remove toolbars from dropdown menu


Clear the Dropdown Address Bar For security and privacy's sake, you might want to clear the drop-down address bar in your Firefox browser. You can do so in just a few steps. Note that these entries will not be retrievable after they're deleted.
Launch Firefox browser and click your cursor inside the address bar. Begin to type in the address that you wish to delete, but do not press "Enter" or click "Go." You will see the drop-down list auto-populate. Using the up or down keys on your keyboard, scroll down to the item you wish to remove from the listing. Press the "Delete" key on your keyboard to remove it permanently. Your browser will now be free of specific items that you wish to remove. Remove Unwanted Toolbars Permanently Web toolbars are add-on programs that enhance functionality of your browser. Usually they improve your online searches, offer quick access buttons to favorite websites and some provide pop-up blockers. However, there are spyware programs that only pose as toolbars. Yet other toolbars, although not harmful, install themselves without your consent. You can easily remove these unwanted toolbars permanently from your PC.

Go to the "Start" menu and click "Control Panel." Click "Uninstall a program" under the Programs area. Scroll through the list of currently installed programs, select the toolbar that you want to remove and click "Uninstall." Follow the step-by-step prompts to uninstall the toolbar. Restart your computer when prompted at the end of the removal. b> Firefox Launch Mozilla Firefox, click the "Tools" drop-down menu, select "Add-ons" and click "Extensions." Click the toolbar you want to remove in the new window. Click the "Uninstall" button. Restart the browser.
Clear the Drop Down Menu in Mozilla Firefox b> Firefox's "autocomplete" feature helps speed up your Web browsing experience. Whenever you type in the browser's location bar, a drop-down menu appears. This menu may contain a mixture of previously visited websites and entries from your bookmarks collection. Although this feature makes it easier to revisit old sites, you may want to clear this drop-down menu when it becomes too large. Clearing the menu can reduce its and prevent others from viewing your browsing history if you share the computer.

Launch Firefox and click "Tools" to display a drop-down menu. Click the "Clear Recent History" option to view the "Clear Recent History" pop-up window. Click "Details." A list of options appears. Remove the check marks from all options, and place a check mark next to "Browsing & Download History." Click "Clear Now." b> Clear Bookmarks Click the "Tools" button again, and then click "Options" to display the "Options" window. Click "Privacy" and find the "Location Bar" section near the bottom of the window. Click the drop-down box in that section and click "Nothing." Click "OK."

I can't watch videos


Firefox is a very popular web browser that enables you to search and navigate the web. It allows you to run a number of components, such as toolbars, download managers and video players, to enhance your browsing experience. However, you can run into occasional display problems and crashes that require some troubleshooting. With some simple guidelines, repair common Firefox problems and improve your browser.

Print or write these directions down before proceeding. Close down Firefox and click the Windows Start menu on the desktop. Select "All Programs" and navigate to the "Mozilla Firefox" folder. Click "Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode)" in the folder. This launches Mozilla Firefox Safe Mode. In Safe Mode, you can repair Firefox issues. Select the areas you want to repair on the "Safe Mode" window. For example, select "Reset toolbars and controls" if you want to remove third-party toolbars. Select "Disable add-ons" if you want to disable plug-ins such as download managers. Click the "Make Changes and Restart" button to repair the web browser. Restart your web browser normally after you complete the repair process. Step 5. Uninstall and reinstall Firefox if you are still having problems with it. To do so, go to the Mozilla Firefox download page and click "Free Download" (see Below). http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ie.html When prompted, click "Save" and save the browser installation file on your desktop. Click the Windows Start menu and click "Control Panel." Double-click "Add or Remove Programs" to launch the programs list if you are using Windows XP. For Windows Vista and 7 users, launch the programs list by clicking "Programs" and clicking "Programs and Features." Click "Firefox" and click "Remove/Uninstall" to remove the web browser from your computer. Double-click the Firefox installation file you downloaded in Step 5 and click "Run" to reinstall the web browser on your computer.

When I sign onto Mozilla Firefox we get a message that states that we get errorcode: sec_error_expired_certificate for xml.freecause.com443


Looks like this error can be caused by any number of third party toolbars.
For me, the offending toolbar was the "gamers unite snagbar" -- which I haven't used for about a year so I uninstalled it.
To uninstall the offending toolbar you will first need to change your computer's date to a date before the expiration of the certificate showing on your error message.
Click on "cancel" on the error message.
Then, go under "tools" and choose Add-Ons>>Extensions and try uninstalling whichever toolbar you think may be causing the problem. Restart Firefox. Hopefully you will no longer have the error message.

Whenever i attach a picture file, firefox does


your browser must have corrupted files, if you cannot repair it thru reinstall, try to have only one web browser, uninstall other browsers and try to attach a picture file. Conflicts are sometimes one of the reasons for page shutdowns.

Update of avg softwears


Older versions of AVG won't update anymore. What you should do is uninstall your old version and download the latest version.

The firefox issue may be solved by uninstalling firefox. You could also try to download a newer version of firefox and install it.

You may set Internet Explorer as your default browser by starting it and choosing 'internet options' from the 'extra' menu. At the 'programs' tab there should be a possibility to set Internet Explorer as standard browser.
