41.02 wont open any pages on windows 7. No viruse, no malware, cookies & history all cleared. Deleted & re-installed but it keeps giving me the slow to respond
41.02 stopped opening web pages about a week ago. I have cleared history & cache. Ran antivirus (avg) ran malwarebytes, they show nothing removed firefox, restarted & run registry first aid. reinstalled firefox but it refuses point blank to open ANY page even removing from allowed programs in firewall then adding again does nothing. I still get the connection has timed out message. This is on all sites. I have ie11 installed and this works fine. I have tried with chrome & this works fine. I have followed all the suggestions on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-dont-load-troubleshoot-and-fix-errors but it still refuses to connect. is 41.02 a faulty update?
