Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

Ubuntu 10.10
Firefox: 3.6.13+build3+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.10.10.1

On my Ubuntu 10.10 machine but not on my Windows machine when I access the website I get "Loading..." but it never finds the site. If I do "", it works fine. Both seem to work on my Windows machine running the current firefox. I haven't tried starting in safe mode or deactivating add-ins yet. But I'll try that and report back.

I tried bringing up Firefox in -safe-mode and then bringing up the same website "". Still went into Loading that never ended.

I access "" using Firefox 3.6.13 from my Windows machine and had no problems. It came right up and went to website So the problem seems to be related to Ubuntu or Linux

Somewhere between then and now, the problem has been fixed. Don't know if it was a web fix or upgrading to new versions of Firefox/Ubuntu

I am running Firefox 5.0 and Ubuntu 11.04
