Today our power got cut off and we got it running again, and started it up like normal. Firefox won't load but programs like AOL will. Also I'm connected by a router and the other connectors are fine. I tried restarting the computer, the modem, even the permissions, but no dice. Anyone have any idea or had a similar experience? :thumbsup:

I tried this link and I tried everything on there to help the problem but nothing is working. Today firefox just started working randomly without me doing anything. But it brutally slow, would freeze and lag often. I even tried IE and that was even worst, ten times worst. I'm not sure what brought this on, this has never happened before. My lights went out and that is when it started. Whenever the lights or computer would go off I would get connection issues but never browser problems.

Hi Jade Knight,

Sorry to hear you are still having problems.

On the lights went out issue - ever considered getting an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to avoid the power failure hard crash? Hard crashes can cause file corruption, loss of data and other headaches.

On the brutally slow and freezes computer problem, with both Internet explorer browser and firefox browser, this can be caused by a number of issues:
1-badly defragged computer - regularly defragging will speed up your computer
2 -too many startup programs - take a look at what is starting up and always running in the background
3 -if you don't already use a tool like ATF Cleaner to clean out temp files

Lots more issues can cause a slow computer see this for more help

If this was recent, a system restore could possibly help.
