I'm not sure on this, your firewall can't be blocking it because you're using IE and can get it the site.

Open Firefox and type about:config in the address bar then scroll down to security, the ones you are looking for are Security ssl2 and Security ssl3, you sould see this: click here look at the end of each line were it says True or False, if any are showing different to the example, right mouse click on the line and Toggle between True or False.

That's all I can think of at the moment.

I've been doing a bit of research for you to see if I could find a similar instance of that error code, nothing doing though. The only thing I can suggest at the moment is to put your query to the guys/girls in MozillaZine and see if they've got any answers click here

Sorry I can't be more help, but no one else has come back to you on anything either. If you do get an answer on MozillaZine I would be interested on knowing what the trouble is.

Just one thought, I wonder if your profile for Firefox is corrupted somehow. This link will explain how to create on new profile click here bear in mind, by creating a new profile you will have to reinstall any extensions you've added. Talking of extensions, you haven't inadvertently added the site to Adblock extension if you've installed it have you? Its easily done.

If anything else comes to mind, I'll post back.

i think firefox was corrupted so i uninstalled firefox and then reinstalled and get a 405method not allowed

Deleting and reinstalling Firefox doesn't get rid of your Profile. If you delete Firefox, then using the the link I gave delete the Profile folder, then reinstall Firefox again. It will give a clean install and create a new Profile folder as well.

I take it that 405 error is when you're trying to access secure servers or https? I'll see if I can find out a bit more about that when I get home later.

I've just been reading my musings, I mentioned the Firewall, you have checked that you have allowed the Firewall to give Firefox access?
