Question

'Problem loading page. FF unable to connect to server' (even when firewall is disabled) but websites load on other browsers

I keep getting this message on Firefox: Unable to connect

        ' Firefox can't establish a connection to the server www.examplewebsite.com
            
         The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
   moments.
 If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
   connection.
 If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
   that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.'

my other browsers (IE and Chrome) work fine. I want to use firefox as this has some useful add-ons which are not available on the other browsers.

I've checked my firewall and deleted firefox from the list of programs allowed and then added it again but this did not work. I've disabled by firewall, but firefox is still unable to connect. I've uninstalled and re-installed firefox but this also did not work. I've reset firefox to default settings and this did not work. I've also clicked the 'no proxy' in tools/options/ etc but this did not work.

Please could someone help!
