Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

The web pages are not opening up in Firefox when opened with "http"
prefix e.g. "http://google.com". However, at the same time, the webpages
which address like "https" are getting opened.

By "the web pages are not opening up" I mean that Firefox tries to check
the URL but ends up showing a White Page without any error message after
a 5-7 seconds.

Actually my problem is that I am very new to Ubuntu and I have just
recently installed Ubuntu 8.04 in my Compaq Notebook. I am able to guess
that some firewall is causing this issue. But not very of this. Can you
please help me in sorting this issue. I am able to access internet for
the pages which have "https" as prefix like this page's URL is having

Its a serious thing cause net is a must to learn more n more things of

Immediate help would be highly appreciated.
