Default Problem with firefox

For some reason firefox will not load the sign in pages for either of my email accounts, or rather it will but when i then leave my email site and try to go back later it just hangs until the connection times out. I launched IE while this was happening and managed to sign in to both accounts with no problem, yet still could not access the sign in page with FF until i restarted my machine. This is an inconvenience at worst, but i'd be interested to know why it's happening if anybody has any idea.

Just a stab at this one.

Have you installed any security type addons recently. Or made a change to your computers Av or Firewall. One last idea. I used to snyc my firefox data to another harddrive I later found that this may cause problems, which in my case it did. Ever since I started using Mozback I haven't had a problem.
As a last ditch effort I have also fixed firefox problems by simply reinstalling firefox over the existing installation.

Cheers

I did set the referer headers to zero so maybe that's the issue. Dunno though because i reset it and still no luck so who knows? I'l try a FF reinstall.

I also have done a standard uninstall of firefox and still retained my settings and addons after the reinstall.
Fortunatly Firefox has been very stable for a couple of years now even with 20 add-ons.
