Question by Nick: What is a proxy server and why is it messing up my internet.?

I have been using mozilla firefox for about a year. I shut out of the internet one day and almost emmidiatly reopened it. When the window popped up, i had an error window saying (in these words exactly): The proxy server is refusing connections
Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections
Check the proxy setting to make sure they are correct

What is a proxy? How do i change the settings/fix it? Thanks
