Firefox Blocking Sites? - Help needed...

  ragingmountain 21:13 16 Oct 2006

Ok so installed firefox on an old computer i'm going to have to use for a wee while... The problem is that it's blocking some of the sites i use alot, for no reason i can fathom. I have disabled all extensions and that doesnt change it, have reinstalled and no difference. I dont use the ad block on my firewall and running AVG free so no adblock etc on that.

I have used all the extensions etc i use now before and never had the same problems, as taking them off didnt change the problem then i dont know what will.... all the sites run in the dreaded IE! A first for everything..

The sites are a few i've noted anyhow...

I'd greatly appreciate any help!

Check cookies in Firefox, it may be blocking them

Nope cookies allowed, cleared cache etc as well, shift reload doesnt work either. its as is its not even trying to fetch the pages...

Have no problems loading the mentioned sites. Using Firefox ver

Check the firewall again, to see if is allowing the site in

One way to test is Disable the Firewall temp

Yup i'm using that version too... disabling the firewall has no affect either

May be the Host file. To check that. Open Windows Explorer or do a search for HOSTS move the file to a different location then retry the sites. make a note of the location of the file so you can put it back after

Nope not that either...
