No error.
Status bar of firefox shows the msg "waiting for www.warez-bb.org..." in case i try for "warez-bb" site. No other thing happens. I waited for 15 Min.
This same site can be opened when i try in firfox of windows 7

I'm running Firefox 3.6.13 (actually it's Iceweasel but it's the same thing) and I can get the warez-bb site without any problems. Your problem does not appear to be a Firefox issue. Maybe one of your add-ons?
ciao,

To check this run from console
Code:
firefox --safe-mode
This will load firefox without your extensions.

Great forums for Firefox: http://forums.mozillazine.org/ Sounds like you just need to clear your cache and maybe delete the cookies from the problem site.

Nothing happened when i tried firefox in safe-mode. So at last i uninstalled the firefox and reinstalled it using yum.
It showed me positive result. I was able to open warez-bb site.
But again the problem is not solved properly. I am not able to open addons.mozilla.org. What may be the reason?
And One more question :- after re installation all my addons were just disabled, not a single addon was removed.Why?

Addons are stored in user home directory: ~/.mozilla or ~/.firefox. I think reinstallation by yum does not delete user customizations.
