Firefox cannot find web pages

Firefox is taking a long time to load web pages and eventually gave up. The internet connection is ok. When I do a ping, there was 100% data loss. If I use windows with explorer, everything works for the web site What's happening?

I just tried it and had no difficulty. The only thing I can think of off the top of my head are the settings in Preferences/Advanced/Network/Settings. Check if the browser is set to use No Proxy, System Proxy, et cetera. Hopefully, that is the problem.
