I tried this as well, with no results, the throbber just keeps rotating, and does not load.

I also tried the Seamonkey browser, but will go ahead and try Epiphany, and Opera as well just to eliminate the Mozilla connection.

I noted in another email that I can connect no problem if I reboot to Windows XP, so it's a Ubuntu problem somewhere.
