    Help. I'm having a problem connecting with Mozilla 1.5 browser.

    I've installed Mozilla 1.5 on Win2000 and for all sites I get a
    message like "The connection was refused when attempting to contact
    www.mozilla.org"

    I have basic dial-up so my proxy preferences is set to "direct
    connection to the internet". I connect just fine with ie or Netscape
    4.75. I've tried removing & reinstalling Mozilla. Also deinstalled
    Netscape but still no success. I shut my firewall down. I've tried
    logon as administrator.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'd really like to switch from
    ie!

    What are you using for a connection program? Your dialer?
