I am trying to download firefox because I am unable to access hotmail, US yahoo, and have just had a problem logging in to another site. I went throuh the Mozilla download process and ended up with the message below - everytime I try to connect. I wanted to check my firewall but I have no idea how to check what firewall my computer is using and whether it's denying access to firefox. Can anyone guide me in checking it out? I'm hopelessly non-Geek - is firefox a good idea for me? Thanks.
Unable to connect
