Customer Question

Hi There
My computer is a Mac Mini Dual Core 2 and is about 5 years old and is loaded with Snow Leopard 10,6.8. My browser is Mozilla Firefox, the latest edition and for emails I use Yahoo UK, the latest edition.
Lately every time I try and connect to Yahoo or Google etc via Mozilla Firefox and via my bookmarks, I get the message 'Server Not Found', and pressing 'Try Again' has no effect all all. If I'm lucky and get Google without the usual message and enter Yahoo UK Mail sometimes I can get onto Yahoo, but as soon as I press emails it reverts to 'Server....' I have contaced Mozilla Firefox and used their 'troubleshooting tips', but whatever I do, the situation simply doesn't improve.
I live in Spain where there is a very slow broadband speed of around 2.5, and I've had this speed for a number of years, and although slow it hasn'y hindered my internet connection. I tried to get an up-to-date speed for you and trying to access a test sight I get 'Server....'
Any suggestions, please.
