    Hello,
    Firefox and IE not opening certain sites. I'm running Windows XP, Zonealarm, Symantec and Avira Anitvirus, GhostSurf, and SpyCatcher. What's going on. All was fine 3 weeks ago. Also, Firefox seems to be eating IE??? Even when it's not set as the Default connection.

    I Got Your Six... Mouse!

    Firefox cant open some websites. Thats just a sad fact. For instance windows update website REQUIRES IE.

    As far as I know, there is no fix for this issue.

    What web pages are you having problems opening with IE?

    yeah, give us specific websites and we can check em.

    i only run firefox at home, and rarely have an issue. some lame 'designed for IE' sites look funny in firefox, but other than windows update, i've never had that issue.

    i'm wondering if your host headers are whacked or something.

    About a year ago, I had sites that could not be viewed, but only the big ones. Google, yahoo, msn. Stuff like that. It turns out my internet was hijacked. If this is the case with you, you need to get HIJACK THIS and run it. Ounce you get a hijack log, post it on G4 tech support forum, and one of the professionals there will tell you whats wrong.

    But make sure that the people that tell you what to chnage actually know what there talking about.


    thats how i did it anyways

    AND make sure you read the sticky at the top, I think its called Hijack this, or spyware soemthing or other.
