We all use Mozilla Firefox and the common problem which has been encountered with recently is with the message Server Not Found. It’s not because of No Internet connectivity or Low speed internet connectivity but was due to some other reasons, so let’s check out the reasons on why it sometime shows Server Not found?
Firstly you need to check whether that’s actually the Internet connection problem or the website problem, this can be tested either by opening other sites in the browser itself or you can test by opening the website for which it is showing this message.

Also, try clearing the browser’s cookies and also the cache by going into Tools and then selecting Clear the cache. Certain types of malwares are known to target Firefox and can prevent it from loading various websites. If still the problem is not solved then try with scanning your system with an Anti-virus because sometimes with a virus in your PC may bring such kind of errors. If you have an antivirus or Internet security program, update its detections database and do a full scan of your system. If this solves your purpose and the web page loads without this error then don’t proceed but if it still doesn’t then let’s see what actually the problem may be?
