    Can you describe what type of activity you were doing in the browser when the error message occurred? (E.g., Were you trying to send email from a web-based email service? Or submitting a form on a website?) And prior to the problem, did the browser open up normally? Any other problems with the browser besides this one error message?

So I assume you were using a web-based email service (such as Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo) in your Firefox browser.

Have you tried sending email messages from that same webmail service while using a different browser -- such as Internet Explorer or Chrome? That would help to indicate whether there is a problem with your webmail account, or simply a problem with the Firefox browser.

try to delete all Send messaged in your Sent folder in your Outlook. Because there is limitation of 2GB per folder, and if you reached it then all messages in Outbox can not be sent because they can't be copied to Sent folder.

New message always on; touch keyboard disappears; no saved messag

This is a glitch found in many htc's due to windows programing once you have downloaded, saved and sent certain documents the phone spases out on tweak functions that would usually run just fine. Delete any file not being used and it should gradually start to work right and the are also know for overheating on the charger and long term use. Due from poor ventilation on the phone just like any lap top or computer.

Ignore the message and let it install. It just means that Windows hasn't approve the driver because Zonet probably didn't sent it to Microsoft to be approved. This is a typicall message for new drivers in XP.

Firewall settings

This usually happens due to missing or corrupt SharedAccess reg key, which represents the Windows Firewall Service.

Download sharedaccess.reg (for Windows XP SP2 only) and save to Desktop. Then double-click the file to merge the contents to the registry. The Services entry will be created. Restart Windows (mandatory step, otherwise the following NETSH command will display an error message).

After restarting Windows, run the following from Command Prompt (cmd.exe)


Launch firewall applet from Control Panel, and then configure your Windows Firewall settings.

If nothing helps, as a last-resort solution (before reinstalling Windows XP Service Pack 2), give these two commands a try. Click Start, Run and type:

rundll32 setupapi,InstallHinfSection Ndi-Steelhead 132 %windir%\inf\netrass.inf

Restart Windows, and then run this command (from Command Prompt):


Attempt to start Firewall applet. Start the Windows Firewall service if prompted.
