Late reply to this thread to keep you up to date.

The problem was not Firefox (same problem with Firefox 8.0.1 and later on even Google Chrome), the Wiki version (I did update to the latest 2.2.35, fresh install) or the firewall (localhost was already in the no Proxy list).

It was apparently the standalone server, running an old PHP 4.4 which did not so well with the Lean skin. Switching to XAAMP solution, as explained in PmWiki cookbook on standalone server, solved the problem for me.

We're using FireFox 7.0.1, and PMwiki 2.2.29, and having no issues. 

You might check your firewall.

I have checked the troubleshooting, FAQ and mailing list archive, but not found a similar problem. 

My old working version of PmWiki 2.1.26 runs on localhost (PHP/4.4.0). After upgrading from Firefox 3.6.x to 6.0.2, editing Wiki pages does not work anymore. I can enter the edit box, type in something, but when submitting I get this error message : 

“Unable to connect - Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost.” 

“The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.” 

“If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.” 

“If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.” 

After that, even displaying the Wiki pages does not work anymore. Closing then restarting the local server puts the wiki back on tracks, but editing still does not work. Please take note that I did not upgrade or change anything on PmWiki before the problem appeared, and I suspect it is linked with my recent upgrade of Firefox. 

Does anybody know what is going on ? Would upgrading of PmWiki help ?
