After I have installed the firefox browser for the first time, some thing
went wrong, every time I want to open a link, an alert window tells me that
access is denied.
I uninstalled and installed back again, same thing.
What Im doing wrong?

... asking a question about Firefox/Mozilla in an MS newsgroup?

Try
http://www.mozilla.org/support/firefox/

I didn't find anything obvious in the knowledgebase (except one for their
email/news program), but you could ask questions in a forum.
Supposedly XP is not only supported, but preferred.
Have you used Firefox on other WIndows versions, and your problem is only
with XP? I haven't installed it on my XP machine yet, but have used it for
a while on Me.

As much as I like Firefox, THIS IS NOT THE PLACE to ask questions about it.
Go to the Mozilla website and ask on their news groups.

Firefox has nothing to do with Netscape.

WRONG!!!!


Netscape USES MOZILLA ENGINE ( GREEKO)

Firefox is Mozilla


Mozilla Started up By AOL after Buying NETSCAPE..

Fire Fox is the browser ( Stand alone) Thunder bird is The E-mail
program ( Stand Alone)

Mozilla is The combination of The TWO Browser & E-mail

And NETSCAPE 7.2/ Mozilla 1.7.3 are identicale... just Name difference
1.7.3 is just one upgrade above netscape, But the Release of the Next
next netscape update will make them EQUAL.
