Question about Mozilla Firefox

1 Answer

Whenever I go onto any search engine it always says "the connection has timed out" or "page cannot be displayed" on both firefox and IE. Its mostly Google since it's the only search engine I use. But I have tried Yahoo's search engine and Bing, and I get the same thing. I also tried clearing my history and cache.

Your proxy may have been altered due to a virus or malware.
Scan for both, i use malwarebytes for my malware scanner.
Check your proxy settings, control panel / internet options / connections / lan settings / i do not use a proxy, so for me this is unticked, if you use a proxy, make sure it has not been changed .

Make Google and Mozill firefox my home page


you can have two or three or more but you need to have that amount of search engines on desk top ie; google internet explorer then google chrome as another and what ever one you want to use for that time it opens as normal and you can use one for mozill firefox and other google as you cant use two home pages on one search engine or use your droptab in internet explorer to use a preference choice but will need to change each time for the serach engine its a pain doing it that way so prob best just to down load two or three different search engines and then use your preferred engine choice using your homepage on each search engine hope that makes sense...

How to set goggle as default browser


Google is a search engine not a browser.
You can run any browser such as Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox and get them to default to Google as the default search engine or you can save Google as a Favourite in IE or a Bookmark in Firefox.

To set Google as the default home page in IE.
Open Internet Explorer then enter www.google.com when Google page opens then Click on Tools - Internet Options
In the General tab click Use current.
Now when you open IE then Google automatically opens.

To set Google as the default home page in Firefox.
Open Firefox then enter www.google.com when Google page opens then Click on Tools - Options
In the General tab click Use current pages.
Now when you open Firefox then Google automatically opens.

If you are using any other browsers then setting up Google as the default page is configures in a similar method.

I hat live window, just i need hotmail.com home page.ch-khaliq@hotmail.com . how do I use only hotmail.com?


That would depend on what web browser you are using (IE, Firefox, Opera, etc..).
For IE:

Go to the website you want to set as your homepage (in this case, www.hotmail.com)
Click on Tools > Internet Options.
Under the General tab, you will see Home Page.
Click on Use Current.
Click Apply, then click OK.
Whenever you open IE, the first page will always be hotmail.com

When i use the IE8 for surfing n working on some important pages the system gets restarted offen... pls suggent any solution for tis as soon as possible. pls


the main reason that ie keeps crashing is because more and more web pages are becoming more dangerous which ie tries to avoid. here are a few suggestions that will help though.
don't open more than 6 ie windows at a time.
Block 95% of popups
Don't open too many applications at a time when running ie.
Increase your Internet Security
stay away from Spyware
Clear up your Startup Programs

You always have the option to download Firefox which seldom crashes and seems to avoid most virus and some spyware automatically. Firefox has a cookies tab in privacy that you can set

Internet Explorer 7 does not connect


Try doing an update from the Microsoft website.
If you have, do you have an antivirus or firewall running? Turn off one at a time until you can see your browser.
I would recommend Firefox as well. Just for added security.

Everytime I go to youtube, IE says cannot display the page.


You could try FireFox... You can get it from www.mozilla.com/firefox
Then you will need the latest flash players for it. Try googling "firefox flash player", that should work
