User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-GB; rv:1.9.0.3) Gecko/2008092417 Firefox/3.0.3
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-GB; rv:1.9.0.3) Gecko/2008092417 Firefox/3.0.3

Installing either Firefox 3.0.2 or 3.0.3 seems to cut all network connections on Vista Business.

This happens when the autoupdate popup message box (e.g. "3.0.3 update loaded etc.") appears WHILE I'm using Firefox. 

I have verified that the connections were not dropped neither by the network card nor by the network (or the cable). 

I had to uninstall Firefox and then install the latest version afresh. Then network connections behave OK.

There's a 99% change that it's caused by your firewall. Really. See <http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Cannot+connect+after+upgrading+Firefox>
Definitely not the installer so over to general
