Question network good, browser does not load pages

Using fedora core 3, upgrade kernel to latest rc6, everythng seems to work except the network. Ping shows sites are there, but when you attempt to connect with firefox the startup file page stays visible, and firefox says "done".

I am just a bit of a beginner on linux systems, so I need help in what to look for, and what sort of information forum experts need...

Can you connect with any other browser? If you can then the problem is with Firefox. Try creating a new profile.

On Linux or Mac, start Firefox with the the -profilemanager switch, e.g. ./firefox -profilemanager (this assumes that you're in the firefox directory).

For me /usr/bin/firefox -profilemanager works.

The profile system that Firefox uses is buggie.
