Question

Firefox loads website but "Connection was interrupted" upon signing in, but no problem with Internet Explorer

I have had no problem loading any website in Firefox. The problem is when logging in to my Verizon webmail account. The Verizon Webmail home page loads with no problem, but when I sign in I get this:

The connection was interrupted.

The connection to auth.verizon.net was interrupted while the page was loading.

The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few

   moments.  (The site is not too busy for Internet Explorer to open)
 If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
   connection.  (There is no problem loading any other pages but this one)
 If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
   that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.  (Since Firefox can open all other webpages it would appear that my firewall is permitting Firefox to access the Web)

None of the solutions under "Firefox can't open websites but other browsers can" or something to the effect of "It only happens with some websites" really applied, but I tried them anyway. Nothing worked. I have not recently updated Firefox, unless it self updates, but I do not recall any recent messages to that effect. What is keeping me from logging into my webmail on Firefox, but not on IE? I prefer Firefox to IE, but if I have to have IE open to check my email I might as well only have one browser open and end all this clicking back and forth.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
