Description

11 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; Media Center PC 5.0; .NET CLR 3.0.04506; (R1 1.6))
Build Identifier: Mozilla 2.0.0.10

I allowed firefox to download the latest update (2.0.0.10) and I could no longer access the internet using the firefox browser. I do have an internet connection as my internet explorer and real media player can both be used to browse the internet, and that is what I'm submitting this with. I am trying to find the 2.0.0.9 version for download to see if the problem is fixed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Downlaod latest update (2.0.0.10)
2.Try to access any website
3.Go back to 2.0.0.9 ;)
Actual Results:  
No internet access at all, not google, gmail, yahoo, questia, anything

Expected Results:  
Should have accessed the internet

There wasn't any indication of any changes. I simply allowed firefox to update which it does automatically except for when it asks me to upgrade now or later.

The problem has nothing to do with a firewall, I have no firewalls installed, and the windows firewall is disabled. Also, I have never had any problems with updates and firewalls before.
