I have a problem with Firefox Browser whenever it does an update, it will not load. I have had this problem before. Internet Explorer opens fine. I had to disable the firewall on Panda Antivirus, in order for it to open. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Panda probably considers it a new install and has blocked FF from opening. I never have used Panda, but I would imagine you would have to check the Program Control section or the Firewall part and reset permissions.

Thanks Ron. So, really it is a setting in Panda itself, and not Firefox?

thanks,
Steve

I would think so. I have a Firewall other then Windows and after every update to Firefox, it will pop up and let me know that Firefox is trying to access the Internet. Once I check the box "Remember this decision" and click OK, FF opens and will run normally as before. It also opens normally once I have set permissions for the new FF.

Wish I could help you with Panda, but you might check the Help menu or run through the Firewall/Security settings where you set Program Permissions.
