Thanks for your reply I just today found it! I would have thought that when you sent it I would have been notified. I had tried your suggestion before unfortunately it wasn't the problem.I have narrowed it down to when I eliminate some the plug ins for F.F. It goes away but with all Mozilla's updates it comes back right away. It doesn't exist on IE I just don't like using IE so I don't. It's one of those problems that I may never figure out! It's a control panel>internet options>connections> settings> LAN settings Delete thing! It sure gets old but after all this time it's become a routine. Most annoying but I've spent more time chasing the problem then I have had luck correcting it. I do want to thank you though in months and months, on several different forums your the only one to offer any help.

Sorry to hear that no one is replying to your posts. But that usually just means that no one has come up against anything like what you're asking about before and don't think they can help by talking about it.
Myself, I have a problem with FF turning my proxy server OFF every time I start it and I have to go into FF settings and retic 'use a master password' in my security thingy so that FF will remember to log me in at sites like this.
I need to go re-read your post to refresh my brain on your problem. Talk to you later Boo.

Yes FF is set as my default and the connection setting is no proxy.

"have you tried switching to the Auto detect or using the Manual settings and entering your proxy settings there?"

I don't know what a proxy is exactly.
Would it be FF or Google?
how do I Google my proxy setting.
Should I try using the ones you use?
Like I said I don't know what proxie settings I need to use and know even less about ports!

I came across this link what do you think of the info does it apply to my situation?
I have been on the phone with Comcast for the past several hours. Since my connection has been down for a day and a half, I figured I would ask about the "detecting proxy settings" nag. She said most people who have trouble with this are former "@home" customers. Her solution was:
1. Remove all @home software!
2. run this script at the run command
regsvr32 -u ahiehelp.dll
copy and paste this in the start, run box and press enter.
This removes a registry edit from @home and removes the http://8080 from the automatic script settings.
This works with former @home customers only who get the "detecting proxy setings" for long periods of time when opening their browser
Hi Boo, Like I've said before, I'm no expert on this stuff. I do, however, go click happy when playing around with my own machine from time.
But then that's my PC and if I break it I can just say "Huh-Oh...!" and take it to the shop for repair.
Now, as I believe that I have suggested this once before, I'm going to copy paste the contents of this PM into a reply to your topic. That way someone, with more technical know how than myself, might read it and be able to provide an answer to your dilemma.
Or better yet, you could start a new thread "Here". That forum deals with web browsers and you might have a better chance of someone coming across your question who could provide the answer you need Boo.
