Hi,

Win 10 Latest update. FF 78.0.1 64 bit

After Win 10 update, Firefox cannot access any web sites. -- from command line window I can ping many different websites and servers, including yahoo.com -- I did FF Refresh -- ensured Windows Firewall allows Firefox -- ensured that Firefox is default browser -- uninstalled FF -- got fresh install pgm from another computer via a memory stick. -- rebooted Win 10 -- installed fresh FF pgm

So far nothing has worked.

When I attempt to connect to any website I get Error "the connection has timed out"

Thank you.

Please note, the machine I am posting this on is not the problem machine.
