Running win 10 -- just upgraded -- restarted Firefox and it worked. Turned off my computer - turned back on and the browser says "Unable to connect.". Connection appears to be fine -- I can use internet on another computer

Chosen solution

It is possible that your firewall or other security software blocks or restricts Firefox or the plugin-container process without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program.

Remove all rules for Firefox and the plugin-container from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full, unrestricted, access to install for Firefox and the plugin-container process and the updater process.
