If you're having troubles accessing a single website, it's possible something changed your hosts file to redirect you to another site. Tell me if you're using a Mac, or a Windows PC (and what version) and i'll show you how to check it.

Cannot view photos using Firefox


Do you already have Mozilla Firefox 3.0.1 (latest version)?
If not, download the latest version of Firefox here:

http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/

Another solution would be to try uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, because Mozilla Firefox works perfectly with Yahoo Answers.

If all else fails, I would recommend that you get Apple Safari browser, which I also use when Mozilla Firefox lets me down and has trouble opening some websites, also known as compatibility issues.

I can't see my messages, comment, poke, or chat wit anyone...what do I do?


You need to check your internet connection, make sure all other webpages work fine.
If your internet is fine (and at a decent speed), try a different browser. Safari http://www.apple.com/safari/ Firefox http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/new/ Chrome www.google.com/chrome

How to view full screen browser


In short, it's not built in to Safari. You can either install a plug-in for Safari or try a different web browser such as Firefox or Camino.

Some plugins that may help:
  1. Saft (http://haoli.dnsalias.com/Saft/index.html) adds a new preference pane in Safari called Saft, and two extra menu items under Safari menu, just above the "Preferences...", called "Full Screen" and "Max Screen".
  2. Megazoomer (http://ianhenderson.org/megazoomer.html) will install for any program (not just Safari for web browsing) and allows you to put any window full screen.
Other browsers to use instead of safari include:
  1. Firefox (http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/internet_utilities/mozillafirefox.html)
  2. Camino (http://caminobrowser.org/)
I believe both of those browsers allow for full screen functions.

Internet crashing- what's the problem/ solution?


Sometimes for what seems to be a very difficult issue, can in fact have a simple solution.

These browsers have preferences lists in their directories which if corrupted adversely impact the functionality of these web browser applications, so try these steps:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
-REMOVING SAFARI & FIREFOX PLISTS-

font.f1 {font: 12.0px Helvetica} • From your desktop, click anywhere on a blank space on your desktop. Now you should see Finder listed near the Apple menu icon.

• From the Finder menu, click on Go, then Home from the
drop-down menu. This will take you to your Home folder.

• Locate and open the Library folder

• Within Library folder look for the Preferences folder and open it.

• Locate and remove to the Trash, these files:
com.apple.Safari.plist
com.apple.Safari.RSS.plist
org.mozilla.firefox.plist

Once you have removed these files to the Trash, click the back button on the open Finder window.
• This will return you back to the Library view where you now will need to locate and remove to the Trash, the folder entitled "Caches".

*Once that folder is removed to the Trash, close all applications and open windows.

* Next, click on the Apple menu icon (upper left corner of your screen) and select from the drop down window, Logout<username>. This will take you the main login window. Simply log back in to your current user account.

* Before testing your Safari and Firefox browsers, perform one more procedure in order to repair folder/file permissions.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
font.f1 {font: 13.0px Myriad Pro} -RUN DISK UTILITY FIRST-

Go to Finder Menu bar
• Click Go > Utilities > Disk Utility and open up Disk Utility app.
• Click on Macintosh HD volume (or on the name you have changed
this volume to.)
• Select "Repair Disk Permissions"
**Let Disk Utility run this repair permissions process, until completion.

Once Disk Utility is complete and there are no errors in red in the completion summary (if there are errors listed in red, re-run DU to see if those error will clear- if they don't reply back to this post right away and let me know what the exact error message is), quit Disk Utility.

• Once this is completed, now you should relaunch
both Safari and Firefox to see if they will now launch.
Update me if these processes did not help.

Thanks!

Regards,

Cannot access farmville.Error handler already exists


Zynga games are designed to be used with most browsers, however there are several documented issues surrounding Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) and Flash Content.
If you are using IE8 we suggest that you try a new browser such as Firefox 3+, Safari 4, or Google Chrome. Internet Explorer v.6 or 7 should also be acceptable.
Firefox is available here:
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/firefox.html
Safari is available here:
http://www.apple.com/safari/download/
Chrome is available here:
http://www.google.com/chrome

On Farmville, when I go to collect gifts, these messages always come up and it won't open my market or collect gifts. Please help! Webpage error details User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0;...


You can try three things, first, download and install the latest version of Flash
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
If that doesn't work, try reinstalling your browser, from that error code it looks as if your using a Mozilla based browser, probably Firefox, Sea Monkey or Flock?
Download the latest version of Firefox here: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/firefox.html
Download the latest version of Flock here: http://flock.com/
Download the latest version of Sea Monkey here: http://www.seamonkey-project.org/
Third you can try downloading and using a different browser. there are several that I would recommend:
Safari: http://www.apple.com/safari/
Google Chrome: http://www.google.com/chrome
or Opera: http://www.opera.com/
Hope this helps!
