  1. When using Firefox 3.03 or IE 8 (beta) programs I will always get a message indicating there are windows inside the webpage that do not load. The message is normally always the same which reads: Failed to connect: Firefox can not establish a connection. I receive this same type of message when using IE 8. The strange thing about this is that when using the AOL program (stand alone) I don't get this situation occurring - when accessing the exact same webpage. I'm using Avira Antivir personal as an Anti virus program. What is causing this to happen?
