Just an update, I installed LL with my cell phone.
Seen it right off. Did  not have to change anything
in FF to run the browser.

So I take it that if one installs LL from wired one may
have to modify the FF setting?

Off I go to let my 14 yr old son drive the back roads
to my sister to get her off windoz.

Hello!

I tired of typing 'Linux Lite' so much, so I started abbreviating it...

Yep hope it helps other people, may have been what was wrong when trying to
do that before with her phone.

By the way, what does LL mean?

Hello!

Super duper! Hope I SOMEHOW 'pointed you in the right direction'.

I'll file that one away for future reference. I've never needed to do that to get tethering going, but might need to one day.

Mine defaulted to 'Use system proxy settings', so it COULD be something in the way your system proxy settings were set up when LL was installed...

I'm thinking it has something to do with my data config.
I have it turned on, but the phone can't reach the net

I have the tethering on data on wifi off no signal to run firefox.

I must be missing some thing?

I just sent Blu Dash an e-mail on this. When I turn it off FF

flickers. So I'm close. I contacted my carrier and they said

not them. So waiting for ol Blu

Hello!

Since you're able to set up SOME KIND connection through the phone, you're almost there. Just turn off WiFi on the phone, make sure the phone's cellular data connection is enabled, and you SHOULD be 'good to go'.
 
Once you make it all the way there, I hope your sister enjoys it!

The reason I'm doing this is for my sister. All she has is a cell phone/pc.

I have been trying for a long time to get her on linux, she was when she

was wired and she loved it. But now just a cell.

I will be making most likely a new post on her cell phone model most likely :P

Will let you know how it goes.
