Firefox and DNS
December 13, 2004 2:25 AM Subscribe
I have managed to install my beloved Firefox on my "heavily secured" computer at work and told it to use the company proxy server (we can only go through port 80). I'm not supposed to be using anything other than IE, but, well, you understand. The problem is that I can't access any .net domains (.com, .org, .co.uk and any other TLD works as it should) with Firefox, while this is not a problem in IE. Using the IP number of a .net website brings me to the site just fine, so it seems to be a DNS issue, but I have never heard of a TLD requiring its own DNS server or a special port. I can't ask the company IT people as I'm not allowed to use FF in the first place, and the FF support forums have never even answered my question. Any ideas?
