    I have problems accessing sites and downloading files from sites such as mediafire while using a internet browser other than firefox. I can access some sites such as google and youtube but it will not load sites like this forum and it will usually not load more than 2 seconds of a youtube video on a browser other than firefox like opera or internet explorer. when im downloading files via opera it will prompt me for the download but the download will fail immediately after it starts. ive checked the personal firewall (which ive disabled but it still affects my other internet browsers aside from firefox) and it shows that it only recognizes firefox as having connections, there is no opera listed at all despite me having it open and using it.

    re-enable the firewall and disable web access protection instead. try the sites again
