more options --- If you just updated to Firefox 3.6.6 - a new preference was added to the Connection Settings proxy preferences in Tools > Options > Advanced >> Network tab - Connection = Settings = Use system proxy settings

The default setting now is for Use system proxy settings, and that might be causing your problem.

If you select No proxy and restart Firefox your problem should be fixed.
