I am using IE 8 & Mozilla Firefox 3.6.

In Firefox on some of the sites like - the web pages is not loading correctly. I found that the link results in server not found error and because of this I am not able load site properly on Mozilla Firefox.

But they are loading properly in IE. Did I disable something ?

Disable any addons you have downloaded and try again, if it works start adding your addons back one by one.

  1. Your firewall / antivirus program blocked the website.
  2. You have very slow internet connection. For that all the component of the page is not loaded correctly.
  3. Your service provider blocked website. In that case contact your service provider for details.
  4. One of the plugin / extension / your browser blocks or replaces the original css script.
