I'm completely at a loss with this problem, so I really hope someone's able to help me.

Since the 19th of December, I have been unable to post to my Livejournal on my computer, but as far as I know, it works on my friends computer. I can occasionally post updates if they're only a couple of words, but not anything longer than a sentence or two. I also can't edit old posts or my userinfo. I filed a support request there, but they haven't found any problems as yet, and no one else has the same problem.

I was away for the holidays, so I took a break from it - now that I'm back, the problem is the same, and I'm also having problems with Gmail - I can't save or send emails longer than a few sentences.

This is very odd, as I am having no problem posting to forums or emailing from my college email. I can also receive email no problem, and I can comment on LJ.

I keep getting different errors in Firefox - occasionally "the document contains no data" and sometimes "the connection to the server was reset", but generally just a blank page, or it gets stuck on the same page. It also doesn't work in IE, and I get a "cannot find server" error.

I have Norton Internet Security 2006, but I disabled, uninstalled and reinstalled it and tried it each time and it had no affect. Disabling firewalls also has no affect. I've done virus scans and I have none, and no spyware either. I also tried the programs in Safe Mode and I've done a "system restore". Nothing has worked.

It seems to be a problem with just these two websites, but as they're unrelated and my computer is the only one with the problem, I'm getting very confused. I haven't changed any settings since they worked last.

This problem now seems to be fixed, but I really don't know why - I'd love if someone could fathom some sort of explanation for me.

I have a proxy connection that I use to log into my college websites, that I switch off for other sites as sometimes it affects the download - and always affected posting on LJ. But now, when that's on, Gmail and Livejournal work no problem. Does this make any sense whatsoever?
