    Mozilla Firefox makes all the connections to the www.:) IE doesn't, reports "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage", for all webpages including my homepage that Firefox does connect to:eek:. Also, cannot upload pictures from Firefox to Flickr or Photobucket. Photobucket complains about "A network error caused your upload to fail.":( I have recently removed Norton/Symantic 2003 and installed Microsoft Security Essentials.:rolleyes:

    Microsoft solved this. They had me reset IE. I followed these instructions

    Method 1: Reset Internet Explorer (IE) & register files
    =================
    Please note: this step will set all the IE settings to default state. Some personal information, such as homepage and cookies will also be affected, but your Favorites will not be reset. I suggest we first backup our personal files before we proceed.

    1. Click Start, please type “inetcpl.cpl” (without quotation marks) in the Start Search bar and press Enter to open the Internet options window.
    2. Switch to the Advanced tab.
    3. Click the "Reset Internet Explorer Settings" button.
    4. Click Reset to confirm the operation.
    5. Click Close when the resetting process has finished.
    6. Uncheck the "Enable third-party browser extensions" option in the Settings box.
    7. Click Apply, click OK.
    8. Check the result.
