Can't connect with any web pages with Firefox

    I just downloaded Firefox on a system new to the internet. I
    have an active connection to the internet (via cable modem), and
    Netscape V8.0 can access web sites without any problems. Firefox can't
    access any web pages (Google, Yahoo, ESPN, etc). It doesn't matter if
    the firewall software is active or not. It also doesn't matter whether
    I am connected with a hard wire to my router or with a wireless
    connection to the router.

    Anyone seen something like this before?

  2. close the program, open your firewall, remove the FF entry
    and restart FF. Any results?

    I tried that but it didn't do any good. But, then again, Firefox
    doesn't work if the firewall is disabled.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    I'd say check your account settings .. compare them with the Netscape ones.
