I am with NTL 10 mb and for the past hour I cannot connect to the internet with Firefox unless I go into tools-options-general connection settings, the manualy proxy connection is ticked and some ip address is there, if i change it to direct connection to tje internet it connects fine but when i shyt Firefox and restart it , it goes back to manual proxy connection, and i have to change it again, any ideas as to why it wont stay on direct connection please..By the way internet explorer works fine

You sure you are clicking Apply then Ok when u change the settings - this is usually the cause

If it's any consolation I've had the same problem, possibly a bug in the software.
