From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.0.3705) BuildID: 2002031104 When attempting to view a web page using HTTP, Mozilla resolves hosts but then just sits, failing to load any information (it just says 'connecting to mozilla.org' forever). FTP connections work fine. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Start Mozilla 2.Wait... 3.Wait... 4.Repeat forever... Actual Results: Mozilla loads into memory, and then it says 'connecting to mozilla.org'. That is all that happens, it never actually downloads anything. Expected Results: Download and display mozilla.org. It doesn't load or display ANY HTTP pages, but on a wild leap of intuition, I decided to connect to a FTP server. I connected to ftp://komodo.mozilla.org without a hitch.
Are you using some kind of proxy? If so: Please see the release notes about proxies and try setting preference for debug/networking to HTTP 1.0
Reporter mailed: --------- "Hello, I tried using it with AdSubtract and without. Perhaps AdSubtract isn't compatible with Mozilla, and selecting direct connection to the internet doesn't really do 'direct connection to the internet', because closing AdSubtract allows Mozilla to function. Oddly enough I hadn't thought of doing this before. And stranger yet is what happens when I closed AdSubtract (which forced Mozilla close), and then restarted AdSubtract and Mozilla. Everything worked normally. Mozilla seemed to correctly find that I was using a proxy during install, and put the correct information in. I don't know what happened, but I am sorry that I hadn't figured out this 'workaround' without bothering you. Thanks, Garrett Heres a synopsis of what I found: With AdSubtract running, installing Mozilla doesn't correctly set up Mozilla to operate with the proxy. Restarting the computer doesn't help. What you need to do is close Adsubtract while Mozilla is running. Adsubtract recognizes Mozilla as a browser and says that they will close it so that Mozilla will work without Adsubract running. I then started Adsubtrac, and then Mozilla. I checked the Mozilla proxy settings and Adsubtract was still configured as the proxy. I loaded msnbc.com and Mozilla correctly downloaded the page and Adsubtract filtered the ads. All fixed...if that makes any sense!" ------ Bug 127845 is vaguely related: Adding "AdSubtract" to summary. Resolving this one as WFM per reporter's comment.

Okay, this is scary. Some of the behavior I cannot explain, but what I did understand is this: If you have AdSubtract running, it is a proxy, so if you do the net-install, you specify it as the proxy and it installs. If you are running mozilla, then it takes the proxy prefs and works. (Nobody has ever said that all-proxy.js worked for them.) Then again, there are some interations where it did not work well, install;uninstall;install;(works). That might actually be related more to the actual bugs in all-proxy.ja, so, whatever. VERIFIED: we'll conquer this problem for the next person who reports it, and learn more.
