Firefox Exensions

Why can I not access https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions.php?app=firefox

I get the loving message of,

The connection has timed out

The server at addons.mozilla.org is taking too long to respond.

* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
moments.

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Yet the same applies to hotmail, nothing else seem to bother it.

As a side note I am using a proxyserver on port 80.

This should not effect it...
I have not tried installing the non portable version, is this wort trying before saying it is a bug with the portable version?

Have you tried loading other

Have you tried loading other pages? Are you at home or are you using a computer that you don't control (like work or the library)?

Vintage!

Hi, I am the computer

Hi, I am the computer technician for my company and I am using my own pc that I have full control over.

I have just tried using the IP of the proxyserver and this does not fix it either.

Also I have been happly using digg, portable apps, google, leenks, and many other pages with this browser.

I am currently using Firefox Portable 2.0 RC 3 to type up this message.

SSL

It sounds like and SSL problem to me, make sure that you SSL settings are set up for the proxy.

Numpty!

Doh!

I forgot to tick
Use this proxy server for all protocols.

Thanks for spotting that one!

Much happier now!

Next to see if extensions themes will stay in the rc3 as well as bookmarks!

Only because I have not tried due to the above problem.

Again thank you Steve!
