Can you give an example of a URL that won't load? As indicated under "What’s New in Firefox" on the release notes, the only change in Firefox 6.0.1 was revoking a (comprimised) security certificate that's used for verifying secure connections to certain Danish HTTPS sites. So unless you're visiting Danish sites and getting an error that looks something like this this... http://kb.mit.edu/confluence/download/attachments/3903437/SecureConnectionFailedFirefox3.JPG ...then the Firefox 6.0 --> 6.0.1 update is unrelated to whatever's causing you problems.  https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/6.0.1/releasenotes/
The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading. I cannot give you an example. I just uninstalled Avast! and the pages are now loading. the add-ons said the avas!t was not compatible with the firefox 6.0.1, maybe that was the culprit??? any chance???

Yup, sounds like it. I'm glad you got it working! Resolving as INVALID, since there's no Mozilla bug / code-to-be-changed here -- just an incompatible addon in need up updating, it sounds like.
