Ubuntu Firefox times out

I upgraded my Acer Aspire One from UNR9.04 to 9.10 the other day and now Firefox times out when I try to access any websites. It says "contacting" at the bottom of the window; but after a minute or so says the host is not responding. I can ping sites from a command line no problem. What's wrong with Firefox? ~Jason
