But don't let it worry you for now.
I read through this string and am not sure anyone has mentioned it yet. You can access your terminal by pressing ctrl+alt+t. You can exit it by typing the word "exit" onto the line in there and pressing enter. If you haven't opened on up yet to check it out go ahead and do that a couple times just to see what it's like. You can also exit the terminal by clicking the x in the corner of the window (just like any other window).
One thing you can do to trouble shoot this is install a different web browser onto the machine and then try to go to those sites with it. You will discover whether it is just firefox that is the problem or if it is something with the system beyond it. I use Opera and it is a stable web browser. You can remove it when you are done if you want but it will help you to get and answer that narrows things down. To do this follow these staps.
Open a terminal widow by pressing ctrl+alt+t
After that enter the following code into the terminal window then press enter.
After you enter that and press enter you will be asked for your password. Go ahead and enter it and then press enter. It will begin to install opera. You may be asked to confirm the installation. If so, just type y on the line and press enter.
sudo apt-get install opera
Once that is done type "opera" onto the line in the terminal and press enter. This will launch opera and you can use it in the normal way to try to go to those sites.
Please let us know what happens.
If a time comes you want to remove opera you can type the following into the terminal to accomplish it.
sudo apt-get remove opera
