Despite no problems on Sat or Sun (I'm on a new computer), today FireFox is not loading any sites. 2 Sites loaded, then stopped working when clicking nay links. All other attempts got a can't connect error page. I have no proxy. My McAfee Firewall was set right. But when I deleted Firefox and readded it to MCAfee, the whole thing just freezes up now upon loading (says Not Responding). Won't even load my theme or extensions. If I go to another program, I can't even get Firefox to appear when I click on it's Taskbar Icon.

UPDATE: I reinstalled FF66 over it, and now it works fine. Any ideas what happened to avoid a repeat?

McAfee has never been known fir being friendly with Firefox and, despite being "set right" may have failed to register the browser as an approved application. Reinstalling Firefox may have caused the security software to re-register that program and allow it to connect.
