    [SOLVED] websites limited with firefox

    never had this happen before but firefox wont let me see alot of sites, like bbc.co.uk, any of youtubes adverts, images from imageshack/bebo/myspace etc, google sometimes.
    Started when i installed the hardy ubuntu disk to see what new things there are and clicked upgrade (currenly running gutsy) and after next restart firefox wouldnt let me look at some sites, any ideas?

    try pinging the sites to make sure there isnt some firewall issue. If you can reach them then it means something is wrong with firefox. If you cant then you need to look into firewalls and such.

    have you been playing around with firewalls at all: firetables, moblock, iptables, ucf.
