Please help!!! Computer problem!!! proxy?

Ok. so when I try to get on my Internet browser (firefox) a box pops up saying " The proxy server is refusing connections". Then below it says "check the proxy settings to make sure they are correct" and "contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working." So my question is, what is proxy? and how do I "check the proxy settings". please,serious answers. =) thanks

-Click the "Tools" tab in Firefox which will display a drop-down menu. -Click "Options" from the menu.
-An Option Dialogue Box will appear. Select the "Advanced" tab.
-On the "Advanced" screen, click the "Network" tab, and then the "Settings" tab.
-Select the option that says "No Proxy."
-Click "OK," then click "OK" again on the next screen. You have now disabled the proxy settings.
Cheers. .
