Hi Guys,

I keep getting this popup: I have used Spybot, and Highjackthis to see if there is a problem with my machine. Comes up clean. Only happens when I am using Firefox 1.0.

Any suggestions?


Thanks,

Heeter

Found this, hope it helps Heeter:

There is an option called
network.http.connect.timeout
You can access it by typing
about:config
in Mozilla's address bar. Right click on the option (options are sorted alphabetically) and select modify. You can then enter the new value. The number should indicates the time in seconds. Your best bet would be to experiment with different settings to see what does the job.
If you ever want to return this setting to its default value, simply right click it and chose reset.

Hi MasterShakes,

It is actually a site that I am not trying to get on. I have never heard of that site. Yesterday I was getting these Alerts on totally different site names as well, that I never heard of either.


Off Topic: TittleBitties, it belongs to someone in here called ApparitionX.

LOL...no prob. I use to watch that show all the time but never seen it on anymore. Cant wait till the movie comes out.

Anyway...about the alert. I only seem to get it when i am at home on dial up. Any place i have gone that doesnt have dial up doesnt have the alert come up but we have IE at school so guess that doesnt count but my friend has it and it doesnt do anything.

That popup is telling you what happened, the connection timed out when trying to connect to that ad server.

Thanks J79zlr,

I do recognize what it means, it is just that I am not trying to access that website. It just tells me that Firefox cannot connect. I am thinking, judging from reading several other places that it is probably a dead banner ad link. But I don't understand why that just because a banner ad link on a site is dead, why am I getting the connecetion timed out alert.

Because the site it is trying to connect to is down., so it tries to connect to the server, but times out. It happens here a lot.

Hi J,

Do you mean here as in OSNN? Could my thought on what it is be correct then? (Banner Ad Link, Someone's Sig Link)

Thanks,

Heeter

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
