    Are you behind a firewall? If so did you add a rule that allows Firefox to connect to the internet? Also, if you have SP2 installed, you might have to make a rule for it in the security center.

    Yeah i have the same problem as you. The webpage won't open with FireFox but it will work with Explorer right?

    Sometimes Firefox finds plugins to download.. like the "flash" plugin which i downloaded and now i can open "flash" animations or anything with Firefox. Maybe we need an other plugin??
