I can no longer connect to gmail, facebook, or my bank account, but other sites work!
I have a MacBook running on Mac OS X 10.5.8 and for about a week, I have no longer been able to connect to my gmail account and other sites - pretty much any site that requires logging in.

These sites work on my PC, just not on my Mac.

I have tried restarting my computer, flushing DNS, emptying the cache, etc. I've cleaned out junk files, deleted cookies, run multiple virus scans. Nothing seems to be wrong with the computer, and the internet connection appears normal. It's extremely frustrating!! I feel like certain sites are being blocked from loading, but I haven't changed anything in my settings.

Please help!
