I currently use Mozilla Firefox as my default browser. Lately I have been unable to use the browser. It says connected to www.yahoo.com, but will not display anything. I can use Internet Explorer without any problems. I've tried scanning with Panda to see if there was a virus, but it said my computer was clean. I also tried uninstalling it and reloading it, that didn't work either. Please help, I really prefer to use Mozilla over IE. Thanks!

Make sure that File> Work Offline is not checked.
Check Tools> Options> Advanced tab> Network tab > under Connection click Settings button.
Make sure Direct connection to the Internet radio button is ticked, unless you use a proxy.
Make sure that your firewall program is configured to allow internet access to Firefox.
After a Firefox update, as some firewalls require permission to allow an updated program to access the internet. If none of this helps you might try this:
Type: about:config in the address bar, press Enter.
Find: network.dns.disableIPv6 in the list.
Double click the line to change to true.
Restart Firefox and try again. If that doesn't help, go back and change to false.
