This morning some type of update automatically began occurring on my computer, shortly after turning it on. I was in a hurry, so I quickly closed the box without reading more about the update. Ever since then, Firefox (my preferred browser) won't connect.
Fortunately, IE is working fine, so I'm able to post this question. My modem also seems to be working properly and the control panel shows a strong connection. I tried to download and reinstall Firefox 2 from Mozilla's site (I hated Firefox 3 when I tried it) but the same thing occurred - a message that says "Unable to connect - cannot establish a connection with the server."
Any ideas? I have Windows XP, good virus protection (thanks to this site), no previous problems with Firefox, and have not programmed any automatic tasks like the download I saw this morning.
Thanks for your help!
