I have been using Mozilla for some time as one of my browsers and have never had a problem until now. Upon the release of 1.4 I did an install with disastrous results.

After an (apparently) successful install, Mozilla would not launch but would crash. But the worst is that other browsers I use no longer connect even though they will launch OK. For example, I have Opera, Netscape, MyIE2, Copernicus, Stardock Central, iRider. They all fail to connect to any website. This had to be caused by the Mozilla install as it all happened simultaneously.

I did an Uninstall on Mozilla but that did not correct the problems with my other programs. I have not found anything on the Mozilla website that relates to this condition.

FYI, IE does work OK as does Avant which is a browser that uses the IE engine.

This is all happening under XP Home with all the latest updates.

I suspect that the Mozilla install inserted some code that is blocking my other programs from seeing the DNS or maybe the port itself.

Any ideas?

HI, As you have XP why not try to restore to before the latest installation as that would take care of the problem. Peace Mal
