So this started with Chrome, the browser just stopped loading, it would open but I could never get a website to open. So I changed to Foxfire, and it worked fine. Now it is doing the same thing. I open the browser, but no web pages will open. I have uninstalled and reinstalled, restarted my computer, run countless Norton scans, my computer is just a year old, I am online and I've used all the troubleshooting devices I can find. I don't know what is going on and could really use some help. The only error I get is 'Timed out'.

The connection has timed out

An error occurred during a connection to support.mozilla.org.

   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.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?
