Why can't I connect to Gmail?

If this happens in other browsers, there is either an issue with your computer, or your internet connection. What does ping receive as the IP of mail.google.com?

Question owner

Yes, Internet Explorer works, Firefox 3.6.3 does not! Have VNC control of another computer on a different ISP and the problem is duplicated. Firefox 3.6.3 is screwed up with gmail.
