I recently upgraded from Mozilla 1.7.1 to 1.7.5 and now I cannot access anything via Mozilla. All connections are refused.
After successfully using Firefox for a month now, suddenly I am getting the same "The connection was refused when attempting to contact [misc. URL]" ALERT message every time I open Mozilla. I have the latest 1.7 version. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing but it's not helping. I cannot access ANY Web pages using Firefox. I cannot figure out how to FIX this problem! Can anyone tell me how to resolve this? firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks
