Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

Both these sites, show 'connecting' on the status bar for a long time,
but finally give the message 'address not found'. I have currently the
updated version of Firefox running on Ubuntu Intrepid 8.14.

I had Firestarter installed, and it would detect a blocked connection
whenever I tried to connect to these sites. Opening Slideshare would
detect a connection to and
beta.indiawaterportal.org would detect to 9
(lists.indiawaterportal.org). However, even after I have removed
Firestarter the problem continues.

The problem seem specific to Firefox in Ubuntu or my local settings, as
both the sites open in Firefox in Mac and Windows.

Would appreciate any help on this from the community.
