Mozilla will not connect to any site

If you are using a firewall - check its settings so that Mozilla is allowed to connect.

Note: Even a deactivated firewall (software) may block traffic.

If you are using a proxy - check the settings. If things are working with Internet Explorer or any other browsers - transfer the settings from there to Mozilla.

When Mozilla accesses a secure site or mail server, it needs to access the Personal Security Manager (PSM), but some firewalls mistake the internal communication as an attempt to set up a local server. If you are prompted about this, you may safely grant Mozilla access.

Other things to check:

  • Is this a problem with the internet connection, your ISP having problems?
  • Tried clearing the cache?
  • Tried a new profile?
  • Have you installed any plug-ins and/or extensions lately that just might have caused this?
