In Firefox sometimes Advertisements or flash objects fail to load leaving me with:


Ex. (hotmail):


"Error: Host Not Accessible

The web host rad.msn.com is not accessible."

Ex. Myspace:

Error: Host Not Accessible

The web host as.casalemedia.com is not accessible.

Possible sources of this error:

* The host name is invalid
* There was a DNS error
* The web site may be unavailable



Is there a way I can either get rid of these annoying objects of error, or make them work.

I dont use firefox myself but....

Do you have any anti advertising extensions installed at all, or do you have a host file installed which could prevent the adverts, one other thing comes to mind.. why do you want the adverts ?

As for CasaleMedia - CasaleMedia.com is found both in MVPS Hosts file and in Spywareblaster's Restricted Sites list. :whistling:

Thats what I thought at first, but I checked my Firefox extensions and nothing there was flash or anti adverts.

I did try these sites in IE, I think it worked, but IE is annoying I don't like using it.

lol I rather have a complete web page with adverts than it say "ERROR" everywhere I look.

Ex: On myspace I want to know if its me that doesnt see any advertisements or can everyone see my webpage as I see it.

Try using Flock or K-MELON . Both of them are based upon FF . U can also use Opera

Another browser you could try is Opera Browser

As for your problems with FF, I would wait and see if anyone who has more experience with using FF than me replies I cannot really advise you much further here myself. One thing you could try is taking out all your FF extentions and see if the error is still there. If I remember right there is a safe mode version of FF too when FF is installed, have you tried that ?

Sorry I cant help further :whistling:

EDIT:

Ex: On myspace I want to know if its me that doesnt see any advertisements or can everyone see my webpage as I see it.

Other people should be able to view your myspace without problems - depending on the level of security blocking they have in place on their computer.

If other users who view your page/s have the MVSP host file or other progrmas to block ads, then the ads will be blocked at their end too but there is nothing you can do about this!!
