Mozilla Firefox wont let me browse

ok, first off I'm completely new to linux and have just installed the desktop/laptop standard version of Fed 4. Everything seems to have been installed right and I'm now logged in as root.

I click on the web icon at the top and I get the standard Fed doc from the h/drive displayed.. which is fine. Now if I click the Red Hat bookmark its goes to the redhat site.. so this must mean its connecting right. Now I would expect that when I put a url in like google it would work.. nope it doesnt it just times out. I have tried opening a terminal window and doing a ping google which does resolve to a ip and pings its little heart out :-)

so i'm stuck ! anyone got any ideas ?

If you still want to use Firefox instead of konqueror, try making a new profile

"firefox -ProfileManager" in the terminal w/o the quotes
