I've been using Firefox with no problems on two computers. Downloaded it to a laptop yesterday and now I get the following error message when trying to visit some pages and I can't access the site.

"If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web."

Can anyone tell me how to make sure Firefox is permitted. OS = Win XP

Thanks,
LLD

A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Mine has wandered off and I'm out looking for it.

Guess you missed the Sticky that says Read Before Posting - consider yourself nagged.
