Updating to moz 1.0 RC1 (Build ID 200204193) from 0.99. Immediately after the first installation all worked fine and I could also retrieve my email, but after restarting my computer Moz is no longer cooperative. I now get the error message "The connection was refused when attempting to contact ... " every time right after starting the program. The error msg applies to all sites and this behaviour renders Moz completely useless -- as an email application as well since I get the error msg "Could not connect to server ... ; the connection was refused when trying to retrieve my email. Moreover, the Mozilla net install is no longer able to start downloading and complains that the connection was dropped. Talkback is likewise crippled. As this seems serious I went back to my pre-Moz W2k installation from Ghost backup and installed Moz 1.0 RC1 -- again with the same results. Opera fetches Mozilla net install ok, install runs ok, Mozilla starts and email is ok. First Windows restart breaks Mozilla in the fashion described while the other browsers (Opera, IE) continue to function ok. see bug 130077 for a bit similar problem
Maybe some program is setting the browser proxy upon windows startup? Have you checked Advanced -> Proxies for anything irregular?
Advanced -> Proxies is set to Direct Connection to the Internet. Removing prefs.js has no effect either. Perhaps Comment #5 to bug 130077 describes the same problem?
actually, bug 130077 itself describes this same issue. Do you mind if this becomes a dupe of that bug and we'll try to find the cause inn the other bug?
No problem. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance in tracking this down.
