    Thank you. You explained it all so nicely and not in jargon. Unfortunately, I did it all, and then I got the message that I must TURN ON the script…Any other ideas what I could do ? Please, help me.

    A little short sited. This may allow the sites to open… but you cant use them any longer… So it’s not a fix at all!

    This is an absolute ridiculous “solution” to this issue. Disable all JavaScript? You might have well as said disable the internet.

    Hi,

    Another way to solve this would be to add the javascript code as a child of the body tag.
    This is recommended in case your script uses document.write, otherwise the document.write would redirect you.

    I tried everything I could find, but nothing worked. So… I went to my control panel and located “manage addons.” I disabled every addon. Clicked on the internet icon, and voila! My internet was back! Then, I went back and started adding my “addon” back until I found the culprit that was fouling me up. It turned out to be two Adobe PDF files. When I deleted “Adobe PDF Reader Link Helper” and “Adobe PDF Link Helper” my internet opened right back up. When I added “enabled” these two addons again, my internet went away again. Go figure! Anyway, my Adobe PDF Reader was not the problem. Hope this helps someone like me who was going crazy trying to find the problem. Thanks. Mitch
