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 http://mycfe.com I get "Loading..." but it never finds the site. If I do "https://mycfe.com", 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 "http://mycfe.com". Still went into Loading that never ended.

I access "http://mycfe.com" using Firefox 3.6.13 from my Windows machine and had no problems. It came right up and went to website https://mycfe.com. 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
