Page Load Error - Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.google.com.

  • Question
  • Updated 5 years ago
Cannot access gmail via firefox. Had some malware issues which I think I have solved. I've cleaned history. I've flushed DNS. I've pinged google.com and followed all the advice I have read in forums about this issue. Still have the same problem. Even tried reinstalling firefox.

I've added the sites to 'Trusted Sites'

"Page Load Error" "Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.google.com."

Any ideas, its driving me crazy...

Try Spybot it works for me. I reboot after the disinfection then was able to connect again.

Ahhhh. Found the issue. Corrupted Registry Keys.

Spoke to my cuz who's an expert and he suggested to download winsoc XP.
It has managed to fix the problem.

Yay, after two weeks of scratching my head, problem solved.

Free download winsoc.

I hope this helps out...

Thank you Fabio Pinto! and Ivan of course

All week I have been having Odd logon and general maddening crap. Today I found WinSock XP Fix 1.2. This thread Page Load Error - Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.google.com. is a golden thread for me. It lead to Fabio Pinto and WinSock XP Fix 1.2
