Mysterious Computer/Firefox Slowdown? NEED ANSWER ASAP COLLEGE CLASSWORK AT STAKE

At around 11:55 AM this morning (February 7th) I noticed that Firefox was taking an unusually long time to finish loading a page. I used CCleaner and antivirus software to see if maybe a virus was part of it, or if my computer needed a good cleaning. That was no help at all, and the sites (including Google) are taking a long time to load. I tried turning my computer on and off, and that was no help either.

I did make note of the fact that there was an update to FireFox, so I tried that. Nothing. Nothing at all.

Unlike my issue with Java, I actually NEED my sites to load completely (as in, the little rotating wheel stops rotating). Without that, I cannot access the forums where I post my COLLEGE CLASSWORK.

I don't know if this is an issue with my computer, or with Firefox itself. It baffles me because up until that moment, my internet and computer had been working just fine and dandy, and I had not added or deleted anything; also, my anti-virus software is up to date.

In short, what the hell is going on and how do I fix it? Please do not use overly technical terms, as I am very bad at deciphering these. Also, please give step-by-step instructions on how to fix this issue, if anyone knows how it can be fixed.

NEED AN ANSWER ASAP, AS THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR DOING CLASSWORK.

EDIT: I checked if IE was working as it should, and it was. It was downright FAST, even. Still, I much prefer Firefox, so again, how can I fix this issue?
