User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1) Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 I updated my mozilla to 1.4 from 1.3 last night. Ever since then, I have been getting "Connection Refused" errors no matter what site I try to go to. I have uninstalled, removed mozilla profiles and cache, deleted mozilla registry entries, and I still get the same problems apon reinstall. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open Mozilla 2. Attempt to go to a website 3. Actual Results: the connection was refused when attempting to contact mozilla.org Expected Results: Loaded the mozilla.org homepage Generic windows xp os, no special addons to mozilla, just the plain vanilla 1.4
Have you installed Mozilla into an empty directory?
Do you use a firewall like Zonealarm ? (possible disabled..) doesn't block development
I have no firewall software running, and I installed Mozilla to a clean dir. I had a feeling that I might have had profile issues causing these errors, so I went into documents and settings/mozilla and deleted the entire folder, including the profile after the last uninstall. I reinstalled again to a clean folder just about 20 minutes ago, and I am still getting the connection refused errors.
Does mozilla work locally, i.e. displays any html-file you are loding from your harddisk? How do you connect to the internet? Dial-Up, LAN, Broadband?
Reporter: Do you see two loopback connections if you open a cmd window and run "netstat -n" while Mozilla is running ? Example : Proto Lokale Adresse Remoteadresse Status TCP 127.0.0.1:1035 127.0.0.1:1036 HERGESTELLT TCP 127.0.0.1:1036 127.0.0.1:1035 HERGESTELLT
Mozilla WILL display locally stored HTML files. As for the loopback, it looped normally, showing my current IP address and all open connections with 3 local IP's at the end, with port addresses ala 127.0.0.1:1745
oh, and I use Dialup. Sorry for the double-post.
this is no mozilla bug. i've senn this behavior on win xp, it happens because a extrange way of handling dial up connections, and or because modifications made by foreign software i.e. spyware etc. i'll do research about this. greetings.
