Firefox has been working fine and suddenly won't open and gives the message:

proxy server is refusing connections
Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections.
* Check the proxy settings to make sure that they are correct.
* Contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working.

So, what did I do? How do I fix it?

Probably nothing.

You received two answers already.

I would start with the second one.

For those wondering why I am bumping this:

I went to split a useless quote off this thread. At the same time, another Moderator beat me and split the useless quote. I based the split off of the last post in the thread. In doing so, I split off a post by dickvl.

Since I cannot re-attach dickvl's post, I am going to quote what he said from the split post.

I'll repost it to get the thread back in 'My Posts'.

If you do not need to use a proxy then select:
Tools > Options > Advanced : Network : Connection: "Direct connection to the internet"

I use automatic proxy and Firefox 4 keeps switching to manual proxy and gives proxy error....madness.
Earlier version of Firefox never had this issue.
