I have recently downloaded firefox 3 and it won't let me connect to the internet. I have tried it from both the website and the pcadvisor dvd. Opera 9.5 which I also got from the dvd does not work but IE and Safari both work perfectly. Can anyone help me with this?
Tbh, I'm not familiar with Symantec security suites. A good firewall would automatically offer you the option of allowing a program to start for the first time, but I know from experience that they don't always.
If the Symantec product you have includes a firewall, I would expect it to disable Windows' own firewall.
I haven't installed any firewalls on my computer that didn't come with it and I think it only came with Windows firewall and Symantec although I'm not too sure what that does. I turned Windows firewall on and made an exception to let Firefox through but it still doesn't work. I'm not very experienced with comeputers so even the most basic advice might help.
