with the firewall turned off

Sounds to me like firefox might be using a proxy of some sort that the other programs aren't. Double check that in its config. You can do a sanity check as root with:

cat /etc/resolv.conf
To make sure your domain searches and dns servers are correct

ifconfig
To check your network interface settings are correct.

route -n
To check the routing is correct

iptables --list
To double check there really are no dangling rules left and default policy should be accept.
