My website opens on Home page but will not allow navigation in Firefox (or Chrome for that matter). Web-site is at www.mikethedogfella.co.uk

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

I uploaded web-site

That page it is an MS Office document with VML code and not valid HTML code. If you look at the page source (View > Page Source) then you will notice the VML code that shows as green comment.

Only IE can display such MS Office documents with VML code. Other browser only get images instead of real text and links that can be clicked, see Tools > Page Info > Media You either have to make sure in the authoring settings that you do not generate VML or use an editor that generates W3C compliant code.
