|I am primarily a Firefox user - about 3 days ago, I noticed pages weren't loading in Firefox. I initially thought something was wrong with my connection, so restarted my cable modem and wireless router, but to no effect. Tried a different computer, and all pages loaded fine.|
Never thought it was a browser problem, but tonight I just decided to try IE, and saw that pages loaded fine in IE.
I restarted my computer. Firefox still didn't work.
I uninstalled Firefox, deleted its directory on disk, then reinstalled. Still didn't work.
I tried installing Google Chrome, Opera, and Apple Safari. None of these worked.
I can also ping websites just fine.
I then installed AdAware, did a scan, and got no meaningful results.
I ran a Norton scan as well, no results.
So in a nutshell:
-Internet Explorer is working fine.
-Can sign into and use Yahoo messenger and Oovoo.
-Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Apple Safari are not working (i.e. getting "failed to connect" and "page load errors").
-No viruses or spyware found by Norton Antivirus or AdAware.
-Reinstallation and restarting were no help.
Anyone have any ideas as to what the problem here could be and/or how to fix it?
