I installed FF yesterday and it seemed to work aok. Curiously today (after switching the machine back on this am) it comes up with this error message when I open up FF.
My homepage is a htaccess password'd folder on one of my domains, but even if I try to go to any normal domain it bounces back the same popup error msg. Any ideas? BTW IE is working normally.
tks v much
The particular problem I get is that FF hangs at the point when the routine they use.. requires me to click after having changed parameters ( dns servers ) ..at that point I am breifly sent to a "secure server" where the info is processed and then returned to a "some items are secure some are not" type page ...
As soon as the switch to the secure servers begins FF hangs and there is no data exchange ( but I get no warning panels or dialogs )...Switching to Ie 5.5 with 'doze 98II and the sequence goes with no problem and I get the usual "you are about to ..with a secure server etc " ..data exchange is about 800k ( again too lazy to hack and see exactly whats they are saying )...return to "you are now leaving ...etc ..to page with safe and unsafe etc " ....
Maybe you are falling foul of something similar on your own site ..have you or your host set up to allow acces to flavours of IE and MOZ ..but not allowed for FF in the rules ..?
<edit>..just saw that its not that in your case ..if you have zonealarm ..the conflict may be there ..what does your screen actually say when you try to connect?)..</edit>
It could be, eg:
- The server did not respond (server downtime)
- No URL like that was found on the internet (typo)
- Your internet connection was down
- Some weird proxy settings issue
- Some windows-internal conflict between IE and FF

with zonealarm you get asked twice about FF ..
Once ..are you Ok with it as server ( after a note from isitreal ..I now say OK and it goes smooth ..
Second time ...do you want it to connect ...
Mine is now "default browser" ...
I wonder amongst the tweaks ..you didn't "tweak" it's access to the modem did you?
I think there is an issue with NIS (Norton Internet Security) and FF on my machine. If I reboot the PC and try FF I get the usual error.
However if I then open up NIS, click on Personal Firewall (set to 'On' btw as normal) , then Configure, and click on OK **without changing any settings etc** FF will then work, as if looking at the Config of NIS Firewall is enough to gee something into life, then letting FF do its job. While in the config I looked under Programs and firefox.exe is in there as Permit All status.
Not sure why this happens or how to correct though! :-/
