    Thanks honeywine, just downloaded the latest firefox but not connecting to the net was confusing me but that fixed it though.
    I'm just another Ubuntu statistic

    It works

    Disabling the IPv6 option worked for me too. Thanks a bunch.

    Below is brilliant! / I tried it and it DID WORK like a charm ! Now Firefox 3.5 runs like a fast race car ! / Gregory


    Changing ivp6 fixed it, thanks.

    If anyone else has this problem type "about:config" into the firefox browser.

    Then use the filter (on the top of the screen) for ipv6.

    The first value is "network.dns.disableIPv6" double click on "false" to change it to "true". (this disables IPv6 support in Firefox.)

    This fixed it for me...I hope it does for you.

    Hey everyone. Just chipping in that I just now used the script and had the EXACT SAME PROBLEM as described in the OP. However, I did what honeywine suggested and it worked immediately.

    Just wanted to throw in that this worked for me for anyone else having issues.

    Also thanks to honeywine for posting; all the way back in May and still very useful!

    Re: fresh install firefox won't connect to internet

    Setting the disable ipv6 to true Worked for me, too.

    I am running jaunty with several vms under virtualbox 3.0.8. The problem was on the host.

    I checked a karmic 64-bit vm and the value was "false". Everything works fine in the vm, so something may have been fixed. It sure seems like a bug. I set the vm to true also, just for grins, ands there's no difference.

    I have not tried upgrading a jaunty vm to 3.5.4 to see if I get the same problem.

    if other applications can't connect, then the problem is not with firefox, but with your network connection. try pinging google, maybe, to see if you've got net.
    Code:
    ping google.com
