Win7 on DELL XPS9000-----64bit. Successfully run IE, Safari and Chrome. Download Mozilla Firefox 17 (and other versions before 17) Firefox home page loads----------but nothing else loads! i.e., can not access other pages, such as nbcnews, etc.----Nothing.

My laptop runs firefox nicely; I like firefox--------but I can't wait for the thing to never load.

any suggestions will be appreciated.

A possible cause is security software (firewall,anti-virus) that 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 internet for Firefox and the plugin-container process and the updater process.
