If you are behind a corporate business (or similar environment) firewall, Firefox may be disallowed for some reason.

In my organization, youtube is blocked by IT administration by using open DNS.

Ask them why they block it.
Ask them if it's permissible to view YouTube, especially if you need it for your job.
There is probably a reason they block it; like they don't want people fooling around looking at YouTube instead of doing their work ;-P

Now if you want to watch YouTube or have access to other sites they block (and risk loosing your job) then you can use a "proxy".
You might be able to use a free proxy like, or there are pay proxy services from around $10 USD a month.
Finally if you have internet at home you could setup your home computer to act as a "proxy server" while you are at work.

Neither Internet Explorer or Firefox will connect to internet. Firefox say it cant connect to proxy server. How do I check proxy settings?

Open your Internet Explorer,
Go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Connections "Tab" -> LAN Settings -> Proxy server, uncheck the box -> OK

Restart your Browsers ie IE or Firefox, you don't need the proxy server if your are a home users.

Hope it helps.

How to open blocked sites

You can try Proxy Servers, but I can't guarantee you, it may or may not work, depends on how the security is set up on the server.
(Click Here), open the link and type in the website in the box and click "Go". You'll be able to open up the blocked webpage or at least you'll be able to know the site information.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Even though Java is installed in my computer, it's having issues because it can't proceed w/ the current internet connections. I tried the website instructions to fix it, but nothing worked. Now, internet...

It sounds like you activated a firewall somewhere in there. Calm down and go find out about your proxy server if you were using one in the first place.

Also, what website instructions do you think you followed, anyhow? Lots of websites, lots of've given no indication which one you chose.

Firefox server refused connection .how do I check if my browser proxy configuration is correct

1. Open Firefox
2. Go to Tools then Options
3. Open the Advanced Tab
4. Look where it says Connection and Open settings.
5. Adjust your settings as desired. (If you are hard wired I would just use no proxy).

If you have any other questions please ask.

I cant log on to the internet on my other computer it tells me minimal or no connection

Please ensure that your security settings are correct. Also make sure you have entered the correct password in your security enabled network (sounds like you are using a wireless connection). If you are behind a firewall or proxy server ensure that the internet settings are correct. If your are using IE go to tools - internet options- connections- LAN settings to setup your proxy if you are using Firefox go to tools - options - advanced - networks - settings tab to configure your proxy. The steps are almost identical for all browsers.

I can access all other google not at .com

sometimes it happens because of the server RESPONSE "BUSY".
and try cleaning your cookies and CACHE.
clean your temp FILES.
else ask you ISP to open all the ports.if not opened.

and check whether you firewall is blocking.
scan for viruses that restricting your browsing. You can also try a proxy site to check if it will show Google sites.
