Right after I installed Firefox its current version, I seem can't access sites I regularly visits. I dunno if its something to do with the browser but I am certain that this started when Firefox updated. Now, it always says "Page Load Error. Network Timeout. The server at www.site.com (http://www.site.com) is taking too long to respond."

It would be much appreciated if anybody can point out to me how to revert it to its previous version, then I'll try if the problem still persists. Thank you.

Are you sure it's Firefox and not the network? Can you ping out?

Before reverting to the previous version, why don't you try completely uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox?

its probably your network.. 2 things you could try
1)use opendns servers - 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 http://www.prash-babu.com/2008/04/how-to-configure-dns-servers-in-linux.html
2)try changing MTU values - http://www.prash-babu.com/2008/06/how-to-change-mtu-values-in-linux.html

What happens if you disable ping from performing its regular commands, does your network suffers too? Coz I've disabled it by choice without knowing the consequences (stupid me.:() thinking that its the same as blocking icmp parameters. Please correct me if I am wrong.

that selection is just related to pings coming INTO your machine(a stealth machine will totally ignore all incoming pings)
