well it does for me
Alex, try going on it again.
If you can connect to a server in one browser, you can in another.

What for an error message ?

http://ca.yahoo.com/ works for me using SM trunk and FF3.5 on win32

oh well screw that chaps, i think it's my stupid firewall acting up
Probably, make sure that Firefox is allowed to communicate with the internet (although it should be able to with a firewall's default settings, Firefox only uses, by default, ports 21 (ftp), 80 (http), and 443 (https)).
