Hello all, I hope all is well!

Firefox will load my homepage without a problem but when I click on a link it just will not load. Now this forces me to use IE which I do not like. I didn't change any settings on the firewall or AV so I'm stumped.

Please if anyone can shed some light on this subject.

What version of Firefox are you using? Are you certain that you have Firefox allowed in your firewall?
Are you certain you have Firefox set to operate ONLINE. Go to File and click and make sure there is NO checkmark next to Work Offline
We need more info on your computer itself and the programs you are using; Operating System, Anti-Virus program, Firewall and any other security programs you may have running.
Have you rebooted the computer and tried again to use Firefox?

Firefox version 3.0.4 and yes firefox is allowed and not offline. I did reboot and uninstalled the program then reinstalled, it now seems that it won't work from google.ie/.com but will work for yahoo or some other search engine.

I am not certain what you mean here "IT" won't work from google.ie? What won't work? If you mean you cannot use google but you can use other search engines? You are using an old version of Firefox, current version is 3.5.3.

Yes that is correct, I tried the new version and had the same problem. I went back to the older version because some of my addons didn't work

Just a thought but it may be your proxy settings. Go to Tools>Options>Advanced>Network>Settings and see what is there. Try setting it to No proxy or automatically configure.

Yea thanks but it's not set to a proxy.

It turned out to be a badly needed update of which I received via automatic updates. So thanks for nothing Lol.

I am having pretty much the same trouble. Firefox will not load up at all. I have not made any changes either. It just won't load up. Can you give me some help? I tried to download the 3.6 version just to get it to load up and it would not finish the task.

Thanks for any help.
