Question Why some webpages are not opening in firefox in Ubuntu 10.04?


I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my desktop. I have successfully connected my BSNL broadband and can access internet. I have upgraded to Firefox 8. The problem is some webpages are not opening in firefox. Pages like -,, ubuntu forum pages etc and lots others are not opening but loading infinitely. I have also installed google chrome. But same thing is happening there also. My modem is configured in bridge mode. Please help.

Thanks for replying. I have disabled IPv6. But still no luck. I have dual boot ubuntu with windows 7. In windows 7 everything is working fine. Please suggest something else.

Upgrade to Firefox 9 is what I would try. Though I keep my Ubuntu 10.04LTS Firefox with stock updates and my Firefox version is at 3.6.24. I have no problems with stock Ubuntu 10.04 Firefox.


chrome, firefox, ubuntu, webpage
