Just purchased a new sony laptop

Tried installing firefox for my browser and installed it succesfully. However when I load firefox, the browser opens but it then says "start.mozilla.org could not be found. Please check the name and try again". For that matter, I can't seem to acess any webpage as it gives me the same msg.

Any info is appreciated. I tried to download mozilla and I have the same problem. Seems like the laptop (sony) doesnt allow me to access the internet other than using internet explorer.

Have you tried connecting to the internet using other browesers (e.g.Internet Explorer)?
If your answer is yes, then you can play around with the Options in the Mozilla Explorer ( GO TO Tools-Options)

A fire wall, such as ZoneAlarm stops both incoming and outgoing connections.
