You only have 1 AV program installed don't you?

Can I run more than one anti-virus program? Anti-spyware program? Firewall? Should I?
Real time monitoring, on the other hand, is another story. When you install most anti-virus programs they often automatically install and enable their real-time monitors. Running two or more real-time anti-virus monitors at the same time is very likely to cause a conflict. That conflict could result in error messages, crashes of the anti-virus programs, or other types of failure.

Yes only one AV program installed. The AV program (avast) has at least 7 shields in it.
One for scanning real-time files, one for mail, one for network etc.

Well i know for sure now its one of the shields that is stopping firefox from working.
I guess i will have to disable them all and open them one by one until firefox stops connecting to the net.

Try using Google Chrome and see if you get the same results?
