No I only get this message and problem on Firefox. As indicated in my last screen shot sent to you, I get a different response saying that the page cannot be viewed, but that may be another problem completely, not related to the issue at hand.

OK as it is Firefox only the best bet would be for a full clean install. You will loose bookmarks and extensions (although you can back up the bookmarks)

Are you game for that ?

Are you referring to a Wiondows XP install or a Firefox re-install?

I have been reading the documentation conerning un-installing Firefox and saving Bookmarks, but was wondering how when Firefox is re-installed, that the bookmarks are re-captured to Firefox.
