Solved Why can't I access Firefox if my internet is on?

Specs: Windows 10
Hi

I have never asked for help with computer problems but I hope I can get any help, it would be much appreciated.

So I open Firefox (my default browser) and basically there was no connection. Now the strange thing was that my internet was on, everything worked including my email app, skype etc..
So I went ahead and look for any troubleshoot problems and this appeared:

The device or resource (127.0.0.1) is not set up to accept connections on port "895".

The only web browser I can connect is to Internet Explorer which sucks but is my only option, Google Chrome doesn't work either. I looked online and there were two options to my problem, the proxy and the IP address set to an specific one but none of those were the problems, my IP was already set as automatic and the proxy I turned it off and nothing, the problem is still there

This is so far the problem but if there are any questions, please ask away I will try to help as much as I can, and Thank you so much.

Where were you looking when you saw "The device or resource (127.0.0.1) is not set up to accept connections on port "895". And "IPV6 says no network access".?

Also, maybe your firewall made some new rules, have you checked your firewall settings? Maybe there is an entry in the log around the time this started happening.

127.0.0.1 is the local loopback address, your Network Interface Card. I'm not sure what port 895 is being used for. I thought port 80 was for HTTP.

I loaded firefox, and it looks like its default it "Use system proxy settings".
Options>Advanced>Network>Settings.

Ok so I don't really understand your answer but Its not the proxy I already changed it to every single option and it's not. I don't really know anything about the ports.

the only thing I noticed I don't know if its relatable but the IPV6 says no network access

Did this problem start after upgrading to windows 10?

Try right clicking on Firefox, select properties, select compatibility tab, check run in compatibility mode, select your previous OS from the drop down, click apply/ok, and see if it works any better.

No, It barely happened yesterday for no reason I had been using the browser since early and then later at night is when it happened, I never had any problem like this

I tried what you recommended, the box was unchecked, I checked it and applied it and nothing.

I went on setting and look for troubleshoot problems with internet connections and that happened, and the IPV6 was in network connections and clicked wifi status.

Ok so I checked the firewall and I clicked on "Allow an app or feature through windows firewall" Firefox was unclicked so I clicked on both private and public and it didn't worked.

ISAmad! it works now I just click on restore defaults for windows firewall maybe there was a change that was made that I didn't know about and my connection now shows my internet connection, before on private it just said none.

Thank you so much you have been of great help!
