    hey i recently had to wipe everything off my PC from a really nasty virus and after reinstalling firefox i'm coming across this issue . normally i would be able to set up a proxy on I.E and be able to go back to firefox and would be on my home IP .. but now when i set up my proxy on I.E it connects to my Firefox browser as well . any ideas on how i can get this back to how it used to be ?
    thanks

    i think people would pay for this, if you can retrace what you have done :)

    "wipe everything off my PC from a really nasty virus" - means you just reinstall your OS or formatted your HDD and then install the new OS?
    because if you haven't formatted your HDD, the virus still can be on your computer somewhere, which may cause this problem
    or when you do the reinstall some of the browser's settings in the registry fucked up
