Is the site relevant to you for any reason, for example, using their network?

Generally speaking, Firefox shares connection settings with IE. However, they can be customized, so that's worth checking.

orange Firefox button (or Tools menu) > Options > Advanced > Network mini-tab > Settings button

The default of "Use system proxy settings" should connect using IE's settings. Or you could try "No proxy" and see whether that makes any difference.

Is that address related to your internet connection?

Does this affect only secure HTTPS sites (or addresses that redirect from HTTP to HTTPS)?
