I tried Clearing Private Data (other than saved passwords) in Firefox b ...[text shortened]... t that did not seem to help. Has anyone else had this issue or can suggest a solution?
Try starting up Firfox in safe mode.
Start -> Run ->
"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -safe-mode
[might need to alter the path depending on where you installed Firefox]
This will start it up without using any of the addons or extras. If this works then it's probably down to an addon causing a problem.
Another option is to check any firewalls you may have. If you get connections for a short while after booting only, then it could be that a slow-starting firewall is blocking Firefox?
