Can not conect to photobucket netgear router firewall blocks it - works perfect with Google Chrome and IE9

Netgear router/modem DGN1000 Win 7 64 bit and using windows firewall Avast free anti virus Not sure when this started - maybe the update to Firefox 12.0? Any site that has links to Photobucket photos works but does not display the photo. Any attempt to connect to direct to photobucket.com displays the Netgear has blocked this page. Currently using Adblock and Click + clean but problem is the same with these removed.

Thanks

The NETGEAR DGN1000 product information page says it includes Live Parental Controls from OpenDNS. Could that be the source of the blocking?


When you have a problem with one particular site, a good "first thing to try" is clearing your Firefox cache and deleting your saved cookies for the site.

1. Clear Firefox's Cache

orange Firefox button or Tools menu > Options > Advanced

On the Network mini-tab > Offline Storage : "Clear Now"

2. If needed, delete the site's cookies through this roundabout method

While viewing this page, right-click and choose View Page Info > Security > "View Cookies"

In the search box, enter photobucket.com and clear the cookies. Then enter pbsrc.com and close those as well.

Any luck?

Excellent sorted It was the cookies. - Thank you.

Previously I had cleared cache and done a complete removal / reinstall but the removal must have left cookies intact and I had not checked. There was a Netgear.XXX (I have forgotten the extension) in with the Photobucket cookies which I presume was causing the problem.

Saved me from having to use Chrome Thanks again
