Firefox has never connected by itself, I always have to connect first (normally by opening Outlook).
I am not aware of having made any changes, apart from the normal Microsoft automatic updates.
I use Windows XP firewall, and neither Windows Defender or AVG virus scan show anything abnormal.
I have tried resetting various settings and passwords in IE and Outlook definitions, but to no avail.
I am interested to know if this is widespread and, more importantly, if anyone knows of a fix.
Microsoft has a fix for a similar problem "...when connecting Outlook to an HTTP server" but that doesn't cure my problem.
