I just saw that behavior on a system that signed up with Netscape dialup using their Hi-speed.
It uses a proxy server to compress the graphics, firefox wouldn't go to any pages, whereas IE worked OK.

I don't know why, it is just an observation.

I tried I.E. also and it pops up with page unavailable.

You can have those problems and it isn't your computer or browser. If I do have a message like that, I delete my TIF or cache and history and try again.

If you can tell us the web site, perhaps we can try and see if there are any problems with the site itself.

Connection refused.

So I doubt it's your browsers or computer.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
