    Using the lounge with Firefox (0.9.2)

    Whenever I try to come to the Lounge using Firefox I get the following message.

    I can come here happily with IE, and Firefox behaves normally for other sites.

    The problem with Firefox occurs whether I type in the URL, Use a Favourite, or Search at google then click a link.

    Re: Using the lounge with Firefox (0.9.2)

    The Lounge server has been behaving erratically for the last day or two, so the problem may lie there. But you could try putting the current IP address for the Lounge in your Hosts file. This is a plain text file (without an extension) in the folder C:WindowsSystem32DriversEtc. You can edit it with any text editor. Add the following two lines:

    71.250.240.251 wopr.com
    71.250.240.251 www.wopr.com

    Then save the file. If Spybot or another security application asks whether you want to do this, confirm.

    I am glad to find out that the Lounge server has been behaving erratically. I have been having a lot of trouble getting in at all, but usually the browser is "waiting for wopr.com". Waiting...Waiting...

    A the time of that post IE was working quickly, but Firefox was giving the error is displayed.

    I will try that suggestion and see what happens. .....But I just tried again (wihout yet trying your suggestion) and it came up very quickly.

    As an aside, you should consider updating, there have been a lot of security fixes since 0.9.2
