Hi

I fixed this myself after all that I think the problem was with my wireless router because when I rebooted the internet connection from within the admin pages I can access that page again.

Still have no idea what happened or why this fixed that issue I was just trying everything I could think of anyway problem solved.


One thing if someone could help when I was mucking around with firefox I restored my bookmarks just they are now missing all the Favicons (little icons beside the text).

So what I want to know, Is there a quicker way to get them all back other than click on them one by one or is that the only way.



Thanks to all who looked at this post and hope this somehow helps someone

Regards
Paul

Seeing the alert does not necessarily mean that the website you're visiting is trying to trick you into believing it is a different website - it means that Firefox isn't able to verify the identity of the website, and that you should proceed carefully.


You should only bypass the warning if you're confident in both the identity of the website and the integrity of your connection - even if you trust the site, someone could be tampering with your connection. Legitimate public sites will not ask you to add connection rule exceptions - an invalid certificate can be an indication of a web page that will defraud you or steal your identity.

On the warning page, click I Understand the Risks.
Click Add Exception.... The Add Security Exception dialog will appear.
Read the text describing the problems with this site.
Click Confirm Security Exception if you want to trust the site.


Hope this helps.

You could try FavIcon Reloader Add-on. I've not used it myself, but worth a try.
