Today I am able to access ProZ only with Internet Explorer. Mozilla either does not respond at all when I click on the bookmarked link, or gives the annoying "Proz. com could not be found".
Mozilla works perfectly with all other sites, though.
I wonder if this is a global problem or something is wrong only at my end...

Fault on your side Jan 2, 2006

There must be something wrong on your side as I've been browsing with Firefox all day and didn't have any problems to access ProZ. However, I use a personalized build which might make the difference. Best to wait if the same is the case tomorrow and if, maybe reinstall Firefox.

Good luck,

I think it is some problem there, because I access it without any trouble with Mozilla Firefox, no customization or anythingicon_smile.gif.

I think maybe you should try again, if it does not work, re-download and re-install.

Best of luck,

my mozilla stopped working right today too Jan 2, 2006

All of the sudden, I can't get onto most sites with Mozilla and have to use Explorer. The sites say that Mozilla is not showing them the cookies and I have to re-set it to show cookies. Don't know why. It was working all the other days...

It might be a temporary prolem Jan 3, 2006

I think it is a temporary problem and will solved automatically. Nowadays my Mozilla Firefox works nicely but few days ago suddenly it stopped work.But the problem stays only for two-three days and I have to work with IE.But after those days I never faced any problem with firefox.

Happy New Year.

Upgrade? Jan 3, 2006

I recently upgraded to Mozilla Firefox 1.5, and I am not having this problem. If yours is an earlier version, maybe upgrading would solve it for you.

Try scanning for spyware Jan 3, 2006

Hi Tina,

I downloaded and scanned my system with Adaware and Spybot last night as I’d noticed Firefox was getting slow and waiting for Servedby messages appearing on the status bar. Servedby is a data miner and if your computer has caught one (or several) of these or other adware/spyware, your browser can get so slow it will be useless.
After scanning the browser is back to it’s usual performance.

They’re both free progs:
