mozilla port problem

2 mozilla problems:

1) I am running SuSE 8.0, trying to use mozilla in the way I used to use netscape:
mozilla http://localhost:631  doesn't work with "connection refused".
mozilla  works OK?
/etc/hosts contains the line:       localhost
Other sites work fine.  Anyone have any idea what the problem is?

2) I have a server running on port 1080 but when I try mozilla http://fred:1080 (fred is not the real domain name of the machine but the port number is correct) I get this message:
  "Access to the port number given has been disabled for security reasons."  

What is the problem?  netscape 4+ works fine.  Is there any way of fixing this?
