Does firefox work with mavericks?

In a nutshell, I have a late-2013 MacBook Pro running OS 10.9 Mavericks. Firefox worked until it it didn't. It wouldn't open at all, it crashed my computer. I uninstalled It believe it was firefox 25 and downloaded the latest one, firefox 26, it too worked for a day or two, disappears on its own from the dock. This is what shows up on the screen.

Problem loading page. Unable to connect, Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at maui.hawaii.edu.

   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.

Re: Does firefox work with mavericks?

Try to disable IPv6 (check for other possible causes as well):

You can remove all data stored in Firefox from a specific domain via "Forget About This Site" in the right-click context menu of an history entry ("History > Show All History" or "View > Sidebar > History") or via the aboutSmiley Tongueermissions page.

Using "Forget About This Site" will remove all data stored in Firefox from that domain like bookmarks, cookies, passwords, cache, history, and exceptions, so be cautious and if you have a password or other data from that domain that you do not want to lose then make sure to backup this data or make a note.

You can't recover from this 'forget' unless you have a backup of the involved files.

It doesn't have any lasting effect, so if you revisit such a 'forgotten' website then data from that website will be saved once again.
