Default Laptop Problem

Im having a problem signing into my Yahoo! account. I've been able to do it on my desktop computer, but not my laptop. Ive tried both firefox and internet explorer but neither work. When i try to use firefox it gives me a message that says "the connection was refused when attempting to contact login.yahoo.com"
any suggestions?
