View Full Version : Need Help Computer Studs...
I have a website that I am trying to access from home for work purposes. I use Mozilla Firefox, and every time I go to the site, it gives me an error message reading, "If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web."
Does anyone know how to enable a firewall to allow the site to show up/function?
Rep to the first one to solve my problem!!

1. What OS?
2. What version of Firefox?
3. Do you have a hardware router/firewall at your house?
4. What is the url?

It just means you can't connect to the site, not necessarily anything about a firewall. According to mozilla-
Can't connect to this address
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at %address.
* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
* If you are unable to load any addresses, check the computer's network connection.
* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
Can you get to the site with IE?

afterwards just right click on any page and choose "view IE"
It's the latest version of Firefox. I do have a router at my home. I can access it through Internet Explorer, however my IE is all screwed up and has been for years. It only let's me view parts of a page. On here for instance, IE won't let me click on any buttons, just view the pages.

Why bang your head against a brick wall?
Make it easy on youreself. Go IE!
Cause IE sucks, and mine does not work worth a crap anymore.
