Firefox problems

Hi,

I have, in the past week only, been having problems accessing two very 
popular websites.  These are bbc.com and weather.gov.  It fails to 
display when I visit bbc.com and control is transferred to 
static.bbci.co.uk.  Firefox displays other sites OK.

I am using Mint Linux (Mate desktop) and the Firefox browser is 30 (for 
Mint 1.0).  I was using the adblock, noscript, flash block and ghostery 
add ons and thinking that one of them was misbehaving, I disabled all of 
the add ons.  It did not change anything.

At first, I thought it was specific to these two websites thinking that 
they were experiencing a denial of service attack or some other internet 
related problem.  Other websites were unaffected such as google, you 
tube and many other websites.  These websites work just fine when I dual 
boot to Windows and use the Windows version of Firefox.  Has anybody 
experienced the same thing?
