I have been using the newest version of Opera for a while, because it goes pretty quickly and I like fast. :)
But I don't like how some pages don't show up correctly, like layouts and such, so I've been thinking of switching to another browser.
Buuut I decided to hold off on that.
And the last few days I've noticed, a lot of sites that I go to, such as livjeournal.com or pokecommunity.com, it says 'this page cannot be displayed, please check your internet connection' etc.etc.
and my internet connection is fine!
I can go to google or many other sites.
Sooo today I decided to switch back to Firefox (which I stopped using at first 'cause it ate up my memory pretty fast seeing as how I usually have multiple tabs open.)
And I went to the same sites, and it said 'connection timed out'.
I'm almost positive that it's not the websites themselves, because it's more than just those few, those are just a few that I could remember.
Please help!

Some sites are designed to look pretty only in Internet Explorer. Others are designed only to work in Internet Explorer. Not really a lot you can do about this.

Have you tied disabling any firewall software such as Norton, ZoneAlarm, etc?

I don't have Norton or ZoneAlarm or any kind of thing like that.
I used to have AVG but I uninstalled it because it was messing up my computer.
