    I downloaded a new version of firefox, deleted the previous version and then clicked on the icon to launch firefox, my Norton firewall poped up and gave me the option to block the processes or whatever and I clicked "block" out of habit. Well now it wont connect to any sites. Explorer works except it wont let me click some links. I tried finding something in Norton to allow firefox connectiontions but didnt find anything. Any ideas?

    I would but I don't feel like getting assraped with spyware or viruses. Does anyone have any other ideas? it's not under blocked sites.

    lol norton is trash. 90% of virus disable norton as its first step.

    uninstall it.

    download "avg free" from download.com

    get the latest updates, for free.. for ever...

    get a good firewall or use a router or something... hell, the windows firewall in xpsp2 is good enough...

    and stop using IE. thats where your spyware comes from.

    getfirefox.com
