So I just updated Firefox and now I can't access the internet with that browser. It just says unable to connect. I've tried to troubleshoot by changing the proxy, adding it to my firewall list, and uninstalling it and reinstalling it and still no dice. Chrome works fine but still no damn Firefox. What's the deal?
What's your security software?
Ugh, that shit sucks. But from what I can find in the forums, that's the problem--Norton doesn't trust the new version of Firefox. Does your version of Norton give you the option of temporarily disabling the Firewall?
Now it's being ridiculous. When I try to open up the Norton Internet Security, it refuses to open. No message or anything, just nothing opens up.
Just uninstall that piece of utter shit that is Norton Internet Security. Install Microsoft Security Essentials. Call it a day.
Uninstalled it and it's still not connecting.
Any other options?
Sorry, this thread got knocked off the front page and I forgot about it. Um... that's a fucking mystery, man. I'd remote into your machine and take a look if you want, but I don't know what else to tell you to do on here.
I've changed it to no proxy and still nothing.
Nope, it still says unable to connect.
It was already unchecked. This is so damn weird. I've done all the troubleshooting I could think of and it won't connect for the life of me. Chrome is fine but Firefox is just what I'm used to.
I have a MSI laptop (under warranty) which stopped being able to read disks.
Found out MSI RMA policy sucks.
Any suggestions on how to avoid being without my laptop for weeks and chancing it getting damaged in the mail?
Read disks in what sense? CD/DVDs?
External CD drives are pretty cheap off of Amazon if you absolutely can't go without the laptop.
On a unrelated side note that isn't computer help but I finally used Windows 8 the other day on a computer I was working on and while the touch screen aspect was cool I absolutely hated the UI of it.
MSI responded to my inquiry with an RMA but I would like to avoid the horrors of sending my laptop in the mail for something like this.
