When I load it, by either typing in the url going to my the bookmark carried over from my last version of Firefox, I get a blank page.  No problem with normal page and logging in with Chrome.
Did you try with a new profile?

Tyler, I appreciate your suggestion, but I don;t know what you are referring to or telling me to do.  All I know is that when I clicked on this bookmark before my upgrade to 3.6, I was taken to the website and logged in, not I get a totally blank screen, whether I type in the url or go there from the bookmark.
If you read the link I gave you in comment 1 it will show you how to create a new profile to test this in.

Yes....it's too confusing and why would I be blocked from from one website and not any others?
Actually, it is very simple to create a new profile.
Enter firefox.exe -ProfileManager into the search bar in the start menu in 7, press enter, then create a new one.
If an extension or configuration issue is causing this, yeah, it could be stopping just one website from coming up.

When I enter firefox.exe -ProfileManager into the search bar in the start menu in 7, it brings me to my home page, not some profile editing page.  Then, I don;t know how to create a new profile, or what it means to do that.
Make sure firefox is closed before you enter that.

OK...I see how to get to the profile page, but I don;t know what to do.  All it says is delete profile.  I can also add a new profile.  Do you want me to delete my existing profile?  I don't want to delete my existing bookmarks and passwords, etc.
http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Managing+profiles#Creating_a_profile gives detailed instructions on how to create one, even gives a video.

I can see the webpage if I create new profile and I suspect I can delete the old default profile, but how do I save/restore the bookmarks?
Don't delete the old one. Go to support.mozilla.com and they can help you move your stuff over from the old one to the new.

This is where at discusses that stuff, but it's not understandable by me as to what to do:

Bookmarks and browsing history

    * places.sqlite - This file contains all your Firefox bookmarks and a list of websites you have previously visited. 


Your passwords are stored in two different files, both of which are required:

    * key3.db - This file stores your key database for your passwords. To transfer saved passwords, you must copy this file along with the following file. 


    * signons.sqlite - Saved passwords.


    * signons3.txt - Saved passwords

For more information see Remembering passwords.

    * cookies.sqlite - This file stores your cookies. For more information see the Cookies article.

I got the bookmarks moved over.  Getting the passwords resaved seems like a mystery.  This certainly seems like a bug to me.  What
