Firefox just stopped working! It opens but wont load any sites and gives no error messages. internet working as using safari now.

Was in the UK yesterday and Firefox was working no problem. Arrived back in Denmark today and FF has stopped working. Mac was closed down for the flight over. Firefox opens and does nothing.. when I click on a bookmark the address bar stays empty and the little search icon continues to rotate. Reset firefox and still get the same problem. I am using the same internet connection I used before going away! Please help!

Check the connection settings.

See "Firefox connection settings":

Do other browsers and services that can contact internet like e-mail work?

Cor-el - thanks for your reply. All other programs work just fine. I have tried every setting in the advanced network panel and it makes no difference. Firefox just hangs all the time no matter what I put in to the address bar. Its so frustrating as I cannot download a new version and start again as I do not have the right system updates on my mac.

Actually its has just started working again for no reason as all the settings are the same as I was using last night! So bizarre! thanks for your help.

Mine is doing the same thing. I've found that after I restart the computer it works again. For awhile anyway, then it does it again later.
