hey there, i got hipped to firefox via a few threads on TB/OT. anyhow, i use a pc with XP home. i generally get all the updates from MS. for a long time i used comcast cable as an ISP, lately i had to move and am hooked up to sbc dsl via a linksys router of mine. every so often i've had IE tell me that there is no internet connection when there is (i.e., i can hook up to other programs that connect to the internet without IE). usually i was able to hit "cancel" on the prompt, and go about my business. some time after moving to the location with the sbc dsl, (i may have gotten an xp update since then, i dunno), IE has totally refused to work, prompting me to connect to the internet no matter what. this probably started a week ago. however, firefox works just fine. any clue what's up with IE??
