Can't connect to shroomery with Firefox or Netscape..
    #2679247 - 05/14/04 07:07 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

"The operation timed out when attempting to contact www.shroomery.org"

I get this message when trying to connect with both Firefox and Netscape..I have tried clearning the cache/cookies/history and temp internet files (as was suggested on another site), to no avail. Everything works fine in IE..but I prefer to use Firefox. It has worked perfectly fine until about a week ago. While looking into the matter searching google, it looks like a number of other people have experienced similar problems connecting to various websites, and some of them seem to be blaming microsofts frequent so-called "updates" for whatever reasons.. ie. Microsoft quietly making an effort to push people into using their products..

Whatever the case may be..anyone have any ideas?

This happens to me while using FireFox at a lesser extent, namely other forums. They appear to be distorted and the frames unaligned on FireFox, but perfect on IE. I guess that's why FireFox version 0.8 is still incomplete ... minor bugs.

Negative :frown:

I guess it might just be a bug..but I mean, it worked fine for months without problems.  It almost seems like something is blocking Firefox from accessing this website, it's the only site I've been noticing problems with..

I was thinking maybe it had something to do with my router..but I haven't changed it's configuration in months.  Anyone think this might be a possibility?

I figured out that it was my ISP blocking access. I go through a college network. Shroomery was gone for a week, same drill. I logged on to another ISP and here I am!

Shit, I really hope its not the ISP..could they actually block out access to a site through a certain browser?

I tried reinstalling windows with the 'repair' option, still with no luck..
