Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

Firefox 3.0 fails to download select sites, e.g., www.ietf.org, while it
successfully downloads most other sites, e.g., www.google.com or

I dual boot my laptop using IE on the windows XP boot and using Firefox
on the Linux Ubuntu boot.  IE connects downloads all the sites that the
firefox browser does not.  I can ping the problematic sites from the
Unbuntu boot.  I can download the sites using 'wget' from the unbuntu
boot.  I have firefox configured to detect proxies (although I have
tried turning off the proxy settings and this did not help).   I did a
full software upgrade and I did a reinstall of firefox and this did not

Any ideas?
