Browsing, surfing, chatting, sharing and connecting are a few of the popular terms without which it would be awkward for common persons to understand the Information technology. And browser is one of the elements that help people to enjoy all with great fun. The kindle that was lit by Sir Tim Berners-Lee with the development of the WorldWideWeb (no spaces) that later became Nexus has become a lighthouse. Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, and Opera are a few of the big and small names in the browser domain. With so many players, the fight is inescapable; as per W3Counter, a firm indulged in analyzing the people’s interaction with the Information Technology & Internet, reveals that Microsoft Internet Explorer (29.9%) leads the domain, and precedes Chrome (28.1) and Firefox (23.1).

Irrespective of the discipline, technologies have had a close relationship with problems or errors, and browser is no more an exception. To narrow down the discussion, let’s focus on the Firefox problems, and try to resolve some of the intermittent issues.

Getting the error messages like “The connection was interrupted”, “The connection was reset”, “The connection has timed out”, or others? Stay cool, clear Firefox's cookies and cache. It’s pretty simple to do. At the top of the Firefox window, click on the “Firefox” button, go over to the “History” menu and select “Clear Recent History”. However, if you are not getting a favorable result, then don’t worry. Sometimes, the issues can be website specific. With big sites like Twitter or Facebook this may only be a few minutes.

Some rare Firefox problems & solutions are as follows:

A plugin has crashed: The error message is generally associated with the display of multimedia rich content. Try to reopen the browser, but if no way, then send plugin crash reports to help Mozilla improve Firefox for more information.

"Suspected Attack Site!" or "Suspected Web Forgery!" warning: This is not an error or issue; actually it happens when the Firefox blocks access to the website you're visiting to protect you from malware or web forgery (phishing).

Offline mode – This is a setting which you may have unknowingly activated on the browser that means you are barring the Firefox from getting access to network connection. Make sure your computer has a network connection and then try again. Press the “Alt” key to temporarily turn on the “Menu Bar”, click on the “File” menu (Windows XP, just click on the File menu) and make sure that “Work Offline” is unchecked.

Content Encoding Error – It indicates that the page you are trying to view holds invalid or unsupported form of compression, use these steps to diagnose and fix them: Configure the Internet security applications including firewalls, anti-virus or anti-spyware programs, and privacy protection programs that are installed. Remove any permission those applications have for Firefox, and then add them again.

There is a long list of errors, but fortunately, Firefox Help services are available at your click. Navigate to the developer website or take help from independent tech support providers. The developer portal hosts easy-to-follow solutions, whereas the latter can provide end-to-end support by taking the remote access of your system.

Overall with quick and easy Mozilla Firefox Support, you can exploit the World Wide Web, and stay productive & connected in a safe and secure manner.
