Firefox is unable to open eny website, how to solve it?

more options

All of a sudden Firefox started to act very strangely on my computer. If I reboot my computer Firefox will initially work normally for about 5 minutes, after that it just won´t work to load and open any webpage, Firefox is acting like the computer is offline, it just keeps loading but cant open any webpage. I know my internet connection is alright since other browsers like internet Explorer is working fine. Another weird thing is that I am also not able to close down the Firefox processes in the task manager if I close down the browser, this makes it problematic to reboot Firefox, because an error message tells me that Firefox is already running, yet i can not close down the processes, the only way to really close it seems to be to reboot the computer. I have also tried to reinstall Firefox but the problem remains the same. Firefox is my prefered browser, so it would be really great to get it functioning normaly again.

hi david, sometimes such issues are caused by a firewall/security software which doesn't recognize & therefore blocks new firefox versions. please remove all program rules for firefox from your firewall and let it detect the new version of the browser again.

Fix problems connecting to websites after updating Firefox

Thanks for your answer. Unfortunately it did not solve the problem. I doubt that it my security software that is disabling Firefox to function. I have checked and I could not find anything blocking Firefox, besides the problem did not occur in connection with any update. The mysterius thing is that Firefox works just fine for 5 minutes when I start up the computer after a reboot, then it simply stops working.
