User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98; Win 9x 4.90; 1.21.2 ; .NET CLR 1.0.3705; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050317 Firefox/1.0.2 I upgraded to the latest build of Firefox and now I cannot connect to any sites with it at all. I have tried over a dozen sites and none of them load. I get the message "my.yahoo.com could not be found. Please check the name and try again." The previous build worked flawlessly right up until I did the "upgrade." Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.enter website address in address bar 2.hit enter 3.get error message Actual Results: exactly the same thing every time. whatever site I attempt to connect to I get an error message that says "<blank>.com could not be found. Please check the name and try again." Expected Results: Loaded the site entered.
Could reporter please check that he can connect to these sites currently using other software?
Reporter, do you have a firewall installed ? That's the most common cause of these problems, because they might allow your old version, but refuse to give access to the next version.
It was a firewall problem.
