Following the upgrade of Firefox to version 67 running on Ubuntu 16.04, no site can be displayed. All of those sites can be displayed via Chrome. Disabling plugins and addons has no effect on this. Rebooting the computer has no effect. There were no error messages during the upgrade.

Is this a problem with my configuration? With my installation? A bug in Firefox?

No websites will load in Firefox, but will in other browsers

Using Ubuntu 18.04, 4.15.0-33-generic GNU/Linux, and Mozilla Firefox 67.0. Other browsers work fine, so it is not an internet connectivity issue. Firefox uses no proxy, and has IPv6 disabled. It cannot open a local server like 192.168.1.4, so it is not a DNS resolution issue. If I run it from CLI, I get the following:

Sandbox: seccomp sandbox violation: pid 25975, tid 25983, syscall 53, args 1 1 0 139885284952128 0 139884708835328. [Child 25975, Socket Thread] WARNING: Unable to create pipe named "25975.45.480528193" in server mode error(Function not implemented).: file /build/firefox-xkwMhH/firefox-67.0+build2/ipc/chromium/src/chrome/common/ipc_channel_posix.cc, line 210

Happens after a recent update, so may go back to earlier version.

firefox cannot connect to internet

I've been using Firefox 67.0 (64 bit) on Ubuntu 18.04 without problem until yesterday, when firefox stopped loading web pages. I can't even open the page for my ADSL modem, which is connected directly to my PC. Firefox sits there with a blank page waiting to connect, and doesn't seem to time out.

I downloaded Firefox 67.0 (64 bit) from the website and installed it in my home directory, and that version works perfectly, but the version that I installed from the Ubuntu repository does not. It looks like some kind of permission problem, but I don't know where to look. Disabling the firewall using UFW has no effect.
