Question : Xampp started no localhost

I have installed xampp and used it for several tasks so I know the installation should be good. I started it and mySQL from the xampp control panel, both show as running,firewall allowing xampp, but when I browse to http://localhost I get this:
       Unable to connect
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost. I am a newbie at this any advice?

Answer : Xampp started no localhost

I suggest you save any work in the 'xampp' directories to another place.  Then uninstall XAMPP, reboot, and re-install it.  I think it may have been installed incorrectly with the hosts file wrong.  I've only used it on XP but it came up working immediately.
