Description

16 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0.2) Gecko/20030208 Netscape/7.02
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0.2) Gecko/20030208 Netscape/7.02

I just installed Mozilla (several versions - none work) and when I try to use
the browser, I get a can't connect error message - that's it. Netscape works,
email works, etc. I've tried ~ ten URLs - none work. I disabled my Norton
Internet Security and it still didn't work.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start mozilla
2.type in URL
3.

Actual Results:  
Error dialog - Can't connect - server refuses connection

Expected Results:  
Open the URL
This seems to be a firewall problem.
Are you sure that you disabled Norton correctly ?

If you open a cmd Window while Mozilla runs do you see 2 loopback connections if
you run "netstat -n" in a cmd window ?

Example : 
TCP    127.0.0.1:1035         127.0.0.1:1036         HERGESTELLT
TCP    127.0.0.1:1036         127.0.0.1:1035         HERGESTELLT


This works for me and many other people. This should marked "worksforme" and it
doesn't block Mozilla development (no blocker)
Severity: blocker → normal
WFM Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040125

Marking WFM as per comment #1 and the fact that this problem hasn't been present
in any of the Mozillas I've ever used.  Reporter: reopen the bug if you can
still reproduce this in recent builds
