I have been trying to follow this line of trouble shooting, but it
think it is above my pay grade.
But I think you are right about the red-herring. I can ping any one I
have tried. I think that means my DHCP and DNS are OK.

That looks promising. If firefox is cacheing a bad dns, then maybe
everything else would work OK except firefox. Maybe, if it cached a
google dns, it would work with the google stuff, which it does, but not
However, I also tried dillo, with the same unable to load result.
I had an idea of how to check this. I booted the problem computer with
fc9 Live-CD. (I think that gives me all clean configuration files) and
I had the same problem and gmail still worked.
I have connected the ethernet cable out of the modem to my old computer
( fc8). I tried to boot, which went OK, except the modem wasn't found.
I then powered down the modem and the computer, then powered them both
up and booted.
It seems to work fine. (Maybe this computer works on saturdays)
To me, it acts like hardware. Next I think I will try putting in an old
NIC that I have and see what happens.

Could someone put a sane subject on this please? (no subject) doesn't
make any sense.
1. Do a about:config in Firefox URL and where it says "filter" at top
put this line "network.dns.disableIPv6 user set boolean true"
And double check down in body that it is entered correctly.
2. In /etc make a file dhclient-eth0.conf and put in line,
"prepend domain-name-servers 127.0.0.1; "
If you have a eth1 or wlan0 , you will have to make a file for them,
just change the eth0 to eth1, wlan0, Etc.
