It's coming about time I need to upgrade to a new computer, but I dont have the money just yet, so Im trying to make this work untill then.

I use the latest version of firefox and iTunes. I use firewall, but dont quite understand it, I have Windows XP. Any other information, just ask and Ill try and figure out.

About two weeks ago at once i lost the ability to go to any of my email accounts, when i click on the page (ex. www.hotmail.com) it pops up with

Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.google.com

* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

When i try to log on to iTunes Store it pops up with

iTunes could not connect to the iTunes Store. The network connection was refused.

I read running a iTunes diagnostics on the network connectivity, and that responeded with all tests passing

Have you tried using IE instead, just to test if it's a Firefox-related problem?
