I found the problem . I had two computers and both were connected to the 
internet via the router. I hadn't removed the router connecting cable 
when I got rid of one and  recently had unplugged the remaining computer 
and reconnected it. I had picked up the cable that had been connected to 
the now disposed computer and plugged it into the onboard LAN socket as 
well as plugging in the other cable to the LAN socket of my ethernet 
card. I was working by feel behind my desk. Hence I had 2 connections to 
my router and as soon as I removed one Firefox was able to access the 
internet.  Should have checked those connections.
