Firefox problem by raistlin

Can anybody help with this one please?

Firefox (latest update) is having trouble opening certain random websites and just sits there mutely until it decides that the server is not responding.

However, using Internet Explorer (YUCK) I can open the website instantaneously.

Any ideas please?

Thank you
Paul

If using Windoze 7 Paul I have similar here. Have reverted to Safari / Chrome and IE9.

Thanks John.

It must be a new Firefox "improvement" then :(

To me it looks like quality isn't a priority anymore. There's a tight schedule to develop new versions these days. 4.x has been released in March, a few weeks later it has been 5.x, now it's already 6.x ... That's just crazy. :(

BTW Now they intend to hide the version number from the users. :roll:

Well, I used to like Firefox but it's diabolical now.

I think of IE as about the same level as a virus.

Chrome is fast but unintuitive :( Unless I've not used it enough

I've had to revert to using FF again (older version) as Chrome is just too unstable for viewing the Community forum. Its ridiculous, having to swap browsers for different websites.
I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.

OK. This is a conspiracy :(

Having convinced myself that IE 9 was far better than previous versions I was just starting to get along with it.

Then I went to tidy up my "Favourites" folder and found today's deliberate error

Error 100. Invalid class string
which, of course, being so plain and intuitive, immediately lead me to... WTF.

SO decided to research it on the 'net and wish I hadn't. What a load of old bollox.

OK chaps. Does anybody know how to get round this error in Windose 7 64-bit please?

Oh well, back to Firefox 3.6... and it works perfectly :) So much for the "improvements" in Firefox 6 but when you talk to them they deny that there are any problems with it, even in the face of evidence to the contrary on the 'net.

Make sure your connection settings are correct. If you have Internet Explorer and it works, compare Internet Explorer's connection settings (e.g., Control Panel -> Internet Options -> Connections: LAN) to those of Firefox (Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Network / Connection -> Settings) or Mozilla Suite/SeaMonkey (Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Proxies).
If your connection settings are not correct but any changes you try to make are not saved after restarting your Mozilla application, make sure you don't have a utility program such as "Hide IP Platinum" that modifies your connection settings. Even if the utility is no longer installed, the user.js file may still contain the modified settings [1]. To resolve this problem, open the profile folder and look for a user.js file. If found, either remove the user.js file or edit it to remove any "proxy" settings it may contain as outlined here, then reset the connection settings.
