I recently downloaded the Mozilla browser because I heard a lot of goof things about it, and so far I'm pretty pleased that I switched from Internet Explorer. But since I got it, I've had an error message when I try to go to a different website or click a link. It says, for example, "the connection was refused when attempting to attempt to the-w.com," or "connection failed...," or something similar. This isn't a huge deal, but if anyone knows if this is a problem or knows if it points to other problems, I'd appreciate the help.

Does this happen every time you click a link?

This generally indicates a problem with the website's server (down, not responding, connection problems). I think IE would generate an in-browser error message in a similar situation. Does it always happen on particular sites, or is it more random?

Orangeman: It doesn't happen every time I click a link, only sometimes. And actually, it also occurs when I manually enter a web address into the browser (again, not all the time).

Fried Egg: It's pretty random. I've had it happen a few times on this site, which is usually one of the faster loading sites that I visit.

I belive this is something within the browser because I can usually go to the link if I try to do it with IE.

Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

So the motherboard crapped on my laptop. Shot. And frankly, technology has advanced considerably since this thing was built. Relative availability of parts combined with labor and what I'd really still be able to do with it...
