    Hi.. I am using Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.1 and I am havng trouble viewing certain webpages. Mainly myspace profiles. (Also I just checked I CAN view myspace profiles on Internet Explorer so is it just somthing wrong with my Firefox???) Everytime I click on one of my friends profiles to view it takes me to this webpage that says:

    Access to the requested URL is not allowed!
    It has some weird symbols below it and then it says:
    Please, fill out the form below if you believe the requested page should not be blocked:
    and then a link which is this: http://www.isu.net.sa/saudi-internet/contenet-filtring/forms/unblock-requist-ar.htm

    Also at the bottom of this page it says:
    This page was generated by cache7.jed.isu.net.sa on Sat, 27 Jan 2007 03:16:46 GMT

    Why is this coming up? I havnt really checked other websites, but I got here just fine and I went to Yahoo just fine.. Its just when I am trying to view a friends profile...

    Anyone one have any ideas? Thanks for your time!

    I don't know why you are blocked, that is just what the link you are receiving is about. Where did you download Firefox? Maybe you downloaded from a restricted site. I haven't run into that problem before. If all else fails, completely uninstall Firefox including your profile and reinstall it.
    Firefox 2.0.0.1

    You can try 2 things.
    Run Firefox in safe mode.
    Start> Mozilla Firefox> Mozilla Firefox(Safe Mode).
    If it works, then it is an extension or theme effecting it.
    You might also create a new profile and see if it works. If neither
    of these helps, I would try a new install.
