To check if you have a DNS problem, type e.g 'host kernel.org' in a terminal and post the results.

Same here, so this doesn't look like a name resolution problem.

May be this is related to some Firefox setting then. Did you try another internet browser (seamonkey, konqueror, opera, galeon, links, lynx, epiphany, whatever)?

Besides posting your distro and version, can you ping google.com from the command line?
