Are you on the latest Firefox up-date.It should be If you already have that you could uninstall it,Run C Cleaner then reinstall it.There was someone on yesterday with the same problem and thats what they done.

Hi, check your proxy settings in Firefox.
Open Firefox/Tools/Options/ Advanced/Network/ Connection/Settings

Ensure it is set for Direct Connection to the Internet.

I had a similar problem, after downloading FireFox . It would not connect to the Internet, IE7 would, i discovered that my firewall was stopping it. I am using Zone-alarm, clicking in ZA fixed it aine
