> 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

> “Unable to connect - Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at

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

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

> “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

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