Sorry, I haven't had the chance to search the previous boards for a possible solution. I'll try to be as clear as possible with my problem. I have a cable connection through comcast. When the computer shuts down after a specific period of time (after the screensaver runs for a little while) and goes into hibernation mode, when I move the mouse and bring it back, I cannot reconnect to the internet. I've tried all the usual stuff, unplugging the cable modem, the ethernet cable, even the cable itself, and nothing. I have to restart the whole system. Formerly, I could put the modem on hold and then when I brought the computer out of hibernation, i'd take the hold off and I'd be able to get back on. Strange, I know. Any ideas? My second problem is with the new Firefox, and I can't find a solution on the net anywhere. Ever since I upgraded to the new version, when I close my firefox window and then try to open it later, all of my bookmarks, option settings and everything else is gone. Once again, only after a restart of the system will they come back. I apologize for the length of this post, but I'm desperate for a solution! Thank you all.
