Clear the cache and the cookies from sites that cause problems.
"Clear the Cache":

"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
- Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.
Do a malware check with some malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.
You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.
Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

Does IE work ok ?
What is the site address ? is it http://msn.com
Possibly there are performance issues with the site. For me it redirects to a local site, but I did see data loss when I recently directly pinged the address, but some sites block pings anyway. This site will give some sort of status report and has comments http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/msn.com.html
Thank you for your comments, I'll try them. Yes, IE does work, I was using msn.com and I tried the number address you listed.
Ok so it is a Firefox related problem, cookies and cache probably, unless IE ONLY works with the IP number address, but not the ordinary link.
Problem resolved by deleting cookies and clearing cache. Thanks
